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, The Steve McQueen™: celebrate an icon with all the details of the original model worn by the actor.
Acetate from cotton and powdery pigments blend to form variations that can only be found in Persol glasses, unique for each frame. Made by hand with the highest quality materials, all these glasses are a natural work of art.
Persol’s founder Giuseppe Ratti recognized the need to make his products iconic, choosing the sword of ancient warriors as an inspiration for the Arrow symbol, the unquestioned emblem of the Brand. This Arrow is what makes every Persol unmatchable.
Patented in the ‘30s, the Meflecto is the first flexible stem system designed for maximum comfort by eliminating pressure on the head from glasses. This system allows glasses to adapt to any face shape and still today represents a technologically unsurpassed solution.
