Persol Eyewear at Goo Goo Eyes
Goo Goo Eyes in Dallas, TX is thrilled to offer the unique line of Persol eyewear.
Since the 1960s, Persol’s extraordinary bond with cinema icons has made it a label with historical value, unique heritage, and authentic, iconic design.
Steve McQueen is most often cited as one of the first actors who brought the label particular notoriety. He wore the 714s folding sunglasses in The Thomas Crown Affair in 1968 and forever secured the style as one of the coolest and most sought-after aviator designs ever produced.
Now nearly a century old, the Persol brand continues to create sunglasses with the combination of Meflecto technology, trademark design features, and overall quality, which, decade after decade, enjoys unrivaled popularity and tremendous stylistic cachet.
About the Persol Eyewear Collection
Persol frames feature Meflecto technology, patented at the end of the 1930s. The Meflecto is described as “the world’s first flexible stem system” designed for comfort and eliminating pressure on the head by allowing the glasses to adapt to the shape of any face.
The frames all feature the Persol Arrow, a signature design detail inspired by the swords of ancient warriors. Over the years, the Arrow has evolved. The latest design is the Supreme Arrow and comes in numerous types and different sizes. It has taken months of design and prototyping to achieve the perfect style.
What To Look For
The Persol 714s is one of the most iconic sunglasses available today. Introduced in the 1960s as a folding version of the 649, the 714 was the first-ever folding glasses model. The iconic pilot shape, keyhole bridge, timeless acetates, and foldable system make it a masterpiece of Italian craftsmanship, requiring ten additional manufacturing steps compared to standard models in the line.
Today, Persol offers an extensive collection of sunglasses and eyeglasses, with the brand’s classical aesthetic and beautiful handcrafted style. A color palette based on tones of Black, Havana, Honey, and Tortoise preserves the frames’ heritage style and timeless quality.
