Persol or 'per il sole' (Italian - 'for the sun') was founded by Giuseppe Ratti in 1917 to create sunglasses for sports drivers and pilots. Persol Sunglasses often feature their trademark silver arrow symbol as pictured.



This actual pair belonged to Steve McQueen who was perhaps the greatest fan of Persol's 714 folding sunglasses as he was seen wearing them on screen and off in the days before product placement.
