Don’t worry if the monochrome isn’t your thing, you can actually get each of the 1950s styles shown here in brighter colours too. But for showing off a Film Noir theme, the black shade is perhaps more appropriate. But just to show the contrast, we have added in a shot of a pair in ‘havana’ too.
The archive style returns in four variations – Gangster, Femme Fatale, Detective and Reporter – all of which are pictured here. Each has an acetate frame, but with variations to the lens and lens colour, depending on your choice.
More details on the Persol site and if you want to buy a pair, it’s around £160 in the UK.
