    Behind the Collection

    The Persol Steve McQueen collection is in every way, an iconic one. The sunglasses celebrate ultra-cool and eccentric actor Steve McQueen and the iconic Persol 714 sunglasses he wore on the set ofThe Thomas Crown Affair.Persol has recreated and redefined this frame with a special edition collection, which reflects the rebellious ways of the renowned actor.

    The Steve McQueen collection is a representation of true craftsmanship and diligence. The sunglasses are based on the 714 frame, the first pair of folding sunglasses. These sunglasses have been around for over 50 years, but have not lost their allure. The Steve McQueen collection, however, takes this original frame up a notch or two.

    It's All in the Details

    Each pair in this collection undergoes an extra ten manufacturing steps compared to the standard pair. The 714SM (714- Steve McQueen) features an updated folding system; its folding closure system now moves from the outside toward the inside, not from the top downwards as it once did. These sunglasses feature details that were present in the original model worn by McQueen, and also have his name impressed inside the stem and on the leather case. As with all Persol sunglasses, these have Persol’s unmistakable Supreme Arrow positioned on the front and stem, as well as on the folding hinge and half-way along the stem.
