Founded in 1917 by Giuseppe Ratti, Persol is an Italian luxury eyewear company. Persol was originally designed to create sunglasses that catered for athletes and pilots who required ultimate comfort, protection and clarity. Persol continues to carry on this desire to produce the prefect pair of sunglasses.

Persol was introduced to the United States in 1962, and had its first boutique store in Beverly Hill's famous Rodeo Drive in 1991. Persol has evolved to include a more feminine line of eyewear that has proved to be popular among famous models and actresses.

To this day Persol remains a leading brand in eyewear innovation with their famous silver arrow now a trademark on all Persol designs,
