British designer JW Anderson has just designed and launched his first collaboration with one of the most legendary sunglasses brands. Which one? Persol. For the first time, the designer has teamed up with the Italian brand to redesign some of its most iconic models and give them the fresh, fun and cool touch that characterises the designer so much.

Composed of 8 models, JW and Persol have worked together on these 8 frames, belonging to Persol’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection. As mentioned above, Persol has chosen two of its most iconic models to be completely revamped by Anderson. The models are: the original PO0649 and PO0009.

In keeping with the aviator style and aesthetics that are so characteristic of the glasses, each design has four colour combinations, blues, oranges and browns, which fuse and balance the values of both brands, tradition and contemporaneity. As a novelty, Persol has also created a sustainable model made from recycled acetates. Finally, the campaign was shot by one of JW’s favourite photographers, Tyler Mitchell.
