What does it take to go from actor to star? Talent, of course. Dedication. And something else to set you apart, a unique edge.
Those working behind the scenes know that the right style can be the key that takes the role of a lifetime from good to great. And that's the foundation of the lasting bond between Persol and the world of cinema.
Think of all the times you've seen eyewear on the screen.
Mysterious detectives and spies undercover, faces obscured in dark shades.
A rom-com lead, squinting through eyeglasses while chasing down the love interest for the ultimate romantic gesture. Rockstars shielding their eyes from the paparazzi as they duck into a taxi in their signature sunglasses style.
From enduring favorites to cult hits, distinctive sunglasses and eyeglasses have been the key to many iconic film looks. Visual elements capable of taking the viewer through the lens and into the story, and extra means of expression for the actors.
The heart of many cinematic plots, and of just as many played out away from the spotlight.
For us, seeing our designs up on the big screen is a feeling that never gets old.
