Leading luxury Italian eyewear brand, Persol have created a capsule collection of sunglasses and optical frames by linking up with the massively popular Spanish Netflix series, La Casa De Papel, for a special three-model collection, inspired by the enigmatic El Profesor.
Enthusiasts of the show will know that leading character El Profesor’s style signifier, his Persol shades, are integral to his character and now, to their delight, they will now be able to sport their very own pair.
The new collection is handmade in Italy and includes optical frames, named ’El Profesor Original’ and sunglasses frames called ‘El Profesor Sergio’, both available in “Caffè” tortoise or black.
What’s more, the collection features an exclusive limited-edition style of only 350 numbered pairs, named ‘La Casa de Papel’, crafted with a sleek black acetate frame and 24k gold-plated lenses. Each style comes included with a luxe customised outer box to look like a bar of gold.
The collection was launched online just as the highly anticipated fourth series of La Casa de Papel hit the screens on the 3rd of April 2020 and since June onwards, can now be found in Persol stores.
