This is where history and legend intertwine, where past and present meet. It was 1968 when the non-conventional Steve McQueen™ arrived on set of The Thomas Crown Affair, wearing a pair of Persol 714 sunglasses.
Confident and refined, the classic Steve McQueen™ frame reflects the rebellious character of the actor that made him a legend. Discover the classic Light Havana and inimitable Black. All polarised.
Based on the 714. The first folding sunglasses.
With 10 additional manufacturing steps, the Steve McQueen™ model is the result of a patient craftsmanship. Compared to Persol’s 714 icon sunglasses, it features the details of the original model worn by the actor.
The folding closure system on the end of the stem moves from the outside towards the inside, so no longer from the top downwards as before.
The Supreme Arrow, Persol's distinctive symbol, is positioned on the stem and front, like the classic model, and also on the folding hinge and half-way along the stem.
The name Steve McQueen™ is reproduced inside the stem and on the stylish leather case.
