This style has the same iconic, unique and untouchable pilot shape as the 649 but with a slimmer profile. The model perfectly embodies/encapsulates the value and images evoked by the icon, for true Persol lovers for whom the 649 is a cult classic. This reinterpretation is particularly suited to both men and women thanks to its lighter, thinner execution.
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.
