Persol Releases Money Heist-Inspired Eyewear Collection
Persol presents sunglasses and optic frames inspired by The Professor from the hit series Money Heist (La Casa de Papel).
With the social distancing period causing us to stay indoors for an extended time, many of us turn to binge-watching series and TV shows on Netflix to pass the time.
If we asked you to name one of the most popular series at the moment, we're sure most of you would say Money Heist or La Casa de Papel. The Spanish heist crime drama on Netflix has been extremely well-received globally and already made its way to the fourth season.
The story revolves around a criminal mastermind, who goes by the name "The Professor", and his plan to pull off the biggest heist in history that involves printing billions of euros in the Royal Mint of Spain. He recruits a team of eight, each with unique abilities, to help him carry out this ambitious plan.
Throughout the series, you'll witness the thieves figuring their way out of tight situations, unexpected events, mind games between the authorities and the thieves, as well as the brilliance of The Professor himself that’ll keep your eyes glued to the screen.
The Professor or Sergio Marquina, portrayed by Álvaro Morte, is undeniably one of the core characters of the series.
Describing him as "enigmatic" would be an understatement; his unmatched wits and intelligence paired with his nerdy appearance and components makes him one of the most compelling characters of all time. One memorable aspect of his identity is his signature pair of glasses.
The series’ degree of success has prompted Italian eyewear company Persol to jump in on the action with a special three-model collection inspired by Money Heist and El Professor himself.
The highlight of the three is undoubtedly the Limited Edition La Casa De Papel. It features the label’s classic sleek black acetate frame fashioned into an aviator silhouette and 24K gold-plated lenses, giving the sunglasses a luxurious and bold aesthetic that sets it aside from other shades.
The second in the pack is called the El Professor Original that looks exactly like it’s been taken straight from series itself. If you’re shooting for the El Professor look for your next meeting or date, this silhouette is definitely what you’ll need. The frame also comes in 2 colors, black and brown.
Last but not least is the El Profesor Sergio that comes in two classic Persol acetates including Black with polar blue lenses and Caffè with light green lenses. All three silhouettes will come in exclusive cases uniquely designed for each of them.
As a finishing touch, you can engrave your monogram or any word of choice to ensure that your pair of Persol x Money Heist is unlike any other in the world.
If you're a true fan of the Money Heist series and the El Professor himself, then having one of these glasses is mandatory. To pick up a pair of glasses from this Money Heist “El Professor” limited capsule collection, visit the Persol official website.
