Persol releases a special edition collection to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Federico Fellini’s legendary film La Dolce Vita, one of the most iconic movies in Italian cinema. Persol sunglasses were the sunglasses of choice seen on all the actors in Fellini’s films. The collection, fittingly termed “La Dolce Vita”, features two vintage inspired models meant to capture the style and charm of Rome in the 1960’s (the setting of the film).
The Persol 2978/S, offered here, is a classic shape given a vintage feel with its sleek rounded corners. To commemorate the collection the inside temple bares a metal “Heritage Plaque” with the year Persol was established (1917).
