JW Anderson X Persol

In their latest venture , British fashion label JW Anderson tapped Italian eyewear specialist Persol for an exciting partnership featuring a selection of innovate sunglasses silhouettes. For the collaboration , drew on Persol’s archives where he selected two styles — the ’649’ aviator style, which was popularised by actor Marcello Mastroianni around 1961; and the ‘0009’ silhouette which has a special four lenses detail. Anderson has put his twist on both styles with colour combinations ranging form bright blue, red and orange. “I have always been a fan of Persol. They are a design classic; I wear them all the time. The craftsmanship and quality is amazing. They remind me of mid-century furniture design and their classic design inspired the colour combinations,” commented Jonathan Anderson.The JW Anderson x Persol collection is currently available in stores and online.
