Persol, an Italian brand which has always been a hallmark of class and the highest quality is paying tribute to the world of photography with a unique collection: Persol Reflex Edition. Capturing beauty for over a century, cameras have made it possible to save endless images of the world which surrounds us and fix them in time and as the memories of generations. The same magic and poetry concealed behind the development of film finds expression in the uniquely Italian artisan production of every pair of Persol eyeglasses. Consisting for the first time of an optical model (PO 3044V) and two sunglasses models (PO 3046S and PO 3047S) featuring Polar and Photo-Polar lenses, Persol Reflex Edition is inspired by vintage-design analogue cameras reinterpreted using modern technology: a fascinating and modern cult object which has captured the memories of generations and reshaped history and the visual arts. Persol is available at OPSM.
Fur is Fendi. Fur is part of this Italian fashion house’s heritage and there was a lot of it in their autumn/winter 2013 collection: neon and striped, covering whole looks or used as neon lining to little booties and as accents to sunglasses and handbags. The models wore long French plaits and more fur twisted high on the head into a mohawk. There was that same punk spirit we’ve seen in New York and London this season but this time in neon shades – orange, pink, purple and magenta. And it wouldn’t be Fendi without a new bag on the block, this season it’s the Selleria collection.
