PO2803S Sunglasses by Persol™. The rectangle shape design features a full rim plastic frame. This model is available in five different color combinations and sizes. Persol is one of the oldest and most iconic eyewear brands. It is instantly recognizable for its arrow logo, which reflects the tenacity of the company founder Giuseppe Ratti. Experimenting with innovative materials, the company has developed products with unique characteristics. Every detail of Persol accessories is handcrafted using the highest quality materials. Persol was one of the first to make glasses from cellulose acetate. Due to the naturalness and hypoallergenic properties of this material, the brand's glasses do not irritate the skin and contribute to maximum comfort.
The history of the brand dates back to the First World War when Giuseppe Ratti began the production of specialized eyewear for pilots. Since he was a photographer by profession and had some knowledge of optics, he decided to take on the development of goggles that would be comfortable to wear and protect pilots from the bright sun and wind. This is how the famous Protector glasses were born.
The Protector glasses appeared in 1917. They consisted of two brown lenses, framed in rubber and fixed with a tape at the back of the head. Yellow-brown quartz lens used in goggles provided the highest UV protection available at the time. Soon this protective model of glasses became widely used in the Italian aviation and brought the company world fame.
Travelers and pilots loved these glasses for their comfort and functionality. And a little later they also began to be used by auto and motorcycle racers. But the mass production of Persol sunglasses started in 1957. At that time the brand introduced its famous models 649 designed for tram drivers in Turin. Very soon this model became popular with the general population, after the release of the film ''Italian Wedding'', starring Marcello Mastroianni. Even today Persol glasses are preferred by many celebrities and politicians for their quality and true Italian style.
The company with long-standing history, Persol is a great example of the harmonious combination of Italian classics and modernity. All the brand's accessories are still manufactured by hand at the factory in Turin like it was long ago at the beginning of the last century. Pure quartz lenses and a patented flexible connection system are the hallmarks of Persol optics.
