Trick And Treat

PHOTOGRAPHED BY NED MATURA


Looking for some extra-special eyewear with a magical touch? How about a sunglass that folds at the lens and temples into a pocket-size package, temples that retract into a dramatic logo button or a signature flexing temple with a hinge symbol recognized throughout the world. These are more than tricks—they are treats that enhance function and flair.

TEMPLE WORSHIP

Persol glasses owe their prestige to the patented Meflecto system, consisting of tiny cylinders (two to four) inserted by a craftsman-like process into the temples to render them flexible, thereby assuring maximum comfort and snugness of fit. This system is reportedly the first-ever flexible temple. Drawing attention to the temple is the Supreme Arrow, the company’s unmistakable signature logo.
