When you think of Persol, you probably think of those chunky, tear-drop acetate frames  that have become the brand's signature. This season, Persol is taking their attention away from the usual acetates and updates the lineup with a collection of thin and lightweight frames called the Metal Capsule. Available in two silhouettes, the frames come in a variety of combinations that include mirrored, gradient, and polarized lenses inside silver or black metal frames.
