Persol reveals their first collaboration with Stone Island for a new pair of sunglasses that is destined to become the most desired accessory of the season. Re-designed exclusively for this collaboration, the two brands chose a model from the archives of Persol, that was first released in the 70s. The sunglasses Persol in collaboration with Stone Island is inspired by the aviation world and workwear, characterized by a pilot frame that features a metal bridge with visible screws that contrast with the frame and as well as the light blue polarized lenses. The logo of the two Italian brands are both featured on the sunglasses, and they have created a new reference point for luxury eyewear that is handcrafted to the last detail.
“I always had huge respect for Persol, their long history, their coherence and their will to never forget their roots. We worked together with enthusiasm and ease thanks to our shared values, putting the final product at the centre thanks to craftmanship and technology, as well as attention to details and functionality,” said Carlo Rivetti, Creative Director and CEO of Stone Island. “The final result represents the perfect mix of Persol and Stone Island, even if we come from different realities”. The Stone Island x Persol sunglasses will be sold with a dedicated box and a special kit to clean the sunglasses.
The sunglasses will be available starting from tomorrow September 29th in all the Stone Island and Persol stores and online, as well as in selected retailers.
