Steve McQueen™
Steve McQueen™ : A Style Icon
Steve McQueen™
His personality, the rebellious spirit, the inborn charisma, his living life to the limit, his passion for speed are all aspects that have made Steve McQueen™ a legend. It was 1968 when his non-conventional, casual and elegant character arrived on set of the film The Thomas Crown Affair. And he was wearing a pair of Persol 714 sunglasses.

This is where history and legend intertwine.
The American actor had been a Persol fan for some time, and had a vast personal collection. In 2006, a pair from his collection was sold at an auction for about USD 70,000.

Steve McQueen™
This folding 714 model, and in particular the version with the light havana frame and crystal blue lenses, Steve McQueen™ discovered an accessory that went on to accompany him on set but also in his private life, renowned for his love for bikes and racing cars.

Confident and refined, the model reflects the rebellious character of the actor, someone who loved to take risks and boasted an inimitable style. Persol celebrates this elective affinity with a Special Edition: the Persol 714 SM pays tribute to the timeless hero, Steve McQueen™.

Steve McQueen™ Special Edition is the result of a patient and painstaking craftsmanship.
Compared to Persol 714 icon sunglasses, it features the details of the original model worn by the actor.
Original Blue Lenses
The blue lenses, a favourite of Steve McQueen™ , are made of top quality crystal, as all Persol models, and are exceptionally slim, light and comfortable to wear. They are polarised and photochromatic with an anti-reflecting coating, guaranteeing crystal-clear vision in all light conditions.
Folding System
Steve McQueen™ Steve McQueen™ Steve McQueen™ Steve McQueen™ Steve McQueen™
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. It takes just a couple of second to fold the sunglasses and pop them in a jacket pocket.
Supreme Arrow
The Supreme Arrow, Persol's distinctive symbol and functional element that embraces the hinges. In this case it is positioned on the stem and front, like the classic model, and also on the folding hinge and half-way along the stem, for a total of four arrows. This choice highlights the brand identity of a model that is already an icon.
Original Double Arrow
The name Steve McQueen™ is reproduced inside the stem and on the stylish leather case.
