Nothing defines “cool”  like a European sports car. As the epitome of great taste and style, it’s no wonder that Persol has released a line of Roadster Edition sunglasses.

The Italian designer’s latest collection was inspired by the brand’s roots – back when Persol sunglasses were primarily worn by racecar drivers like Steve McQueen. Taking cues from the “romance, heroism and obsessive attention to detail” of retro roadsters, you’ll find that these frames are a refreshing contemporary take on a classic concept.

Handcrafted in Italy, these plastic frames feature Meflecto temples and a VictorFlex bridge – part of Persol’s patented flexible design that molds to the shape of your head for proper fit and superior comfort. Offered in Targa Florio and Gran Turismo models, both styles also have a special brow rivet, which, as you can see above, resembles the rivets in the roadster’s body style.

The Persol Roadster, available with blue or rose photo-polar lenses, is a beautifully made model of Persol sunglasses. Polished for four days, the acetate looks smooth and shines like a perfectly waxed race car. What better way to bring out your sleek and sexy personality than with a frame that screams adventure?
