Founded in 1917 by an Italian man named Giuseppe Ratti who owned a small company called Berry Opticians. Ratti was fascinated by eyewear and wanted to develop a collection of technically advanced glasses for professional sports drivers and pilots.
Comfort, optical performance, and protection were the three essential factors that all of the founder's eyewear had to input in to every frame. This brand became known for their polarized sunglasses.
The Persol PO3030V is one of the most sought-after frames from the brand's ophthalmic collection. Designed to look exactly like the sunglasses version, the PO3030V has the signature characteristics of a Persol frame. This model comes in four frame colours; Havana, Black, Dark Horn/Striped White, and Dark Horn/Brown Stripe. The black frame colour and the havana choice are the people's favourite as they look traditional, classic and very sophisticated.
People who are after a more contemporary look with a classic design may prefer the colour-striped versions of this optical frame. The name Persol is said to have derived from the Italian saying 'Per Il Sole' which means 'for the sun'. True to their brand heritage of developing polarized sunglasses, Persol designs glasses that helps to protect eyes against harmful UV rays as well as style them with the latest trends.
The Persol 3030V belongs to the women's optical collection. Its elegant rectangle shape and thin frame design is perfect for women who prefer a polished look with their eyewear. These glasses look very smart and would seriously complement a sharp suit or tailored blazer and pencil skirt. The Meflecto technology of every Persol model allows the frame arms to flex which ensures that wearers always get the best fit from their eyewear.
