Persol Four Lens PO0005 sunglasses

In 1935, Italian eyewear brand Persol created its innovative Four Lens glasses, which were designed to give eyes protection from the sun at every angle. And now, for 2019, the distinctive frames make a return from the brand’s archives.

Produced with the same process used in 1935, and harnessing Persol’s Meflecto flexible stem technology, all Four Lens PO0005 sunglasses are made from crystal to guarantee maximum protection from the light. The frames have been released for a limited run of 100 models and are available in coffee acetate with polarised blue lenses. Each pair is presented in a case and accompanied by an authenticity card.
