It all started in Turin. After all this time, Persol roots are still grounded in unmatched craftsmanship.

And even today, every frame is made in Italy. Still by hand. Still scrupulously perfect, complex and precise.

What’s Included


Patented at the end of the 1930s, the Meflecto is the world’s first flexible stem system designed for maximum comfort by eliminating pressure on the head from the arms of glasses. The Meflecto system allows the glasses to adapt to the unique shape of any face and still today represents a technologically unsurpassed solution.

Custom fit all around

The glasses fitted with a flexible “3-notch bridge” comfortably curve and improve grip. An internal metal reinforcement is applied to the stems of new models, which allows them to be adjusted in length and curve.

The New Arrow

The famous hinge was lightened in terms of weight and aesthetics. The process of continuous improvement of the Arrow led to shrink of 26% the former flex hinge while keeping its main features of great flexibility and resistance.

I was shooting an event in the Caymans and Anthony Bourdain was there wearing these exact glasses. That was good enough for me.”
