The perfect juxtaposition: two inimitable names in design and two of the world’s most iconic eyewear styles – introducing JW Anderson x Persol. Echoing the DNA of both brands, the collaboration presents a new generation of full-colour eyewear – layering the rich history of Persol with the creativity and spirit of JW Anderson.


“I have always been a fan of Persol,” said Jonathan Anderson, Founder and Creative Director of JW Anderson. “They are a design classic; I wear them all the time. The craftsmanship and quality is amazing. They remind me of mid-century furniture design and their classic design inspired the colour combinations.”


The 649 by JW Anderson

It’s provocative, yet classic, discordant yet harmonious, and it’s definitely anything but black & white. True to JW Anderson’s resourceful creativity, the one-of-a-kind color effects of this Limited Edition style are created using acetate offcuts from the production chain to give new life to existing matter, while making each frame totally unique. From bold red & blue or iconic amber & blue combinations, to elegant havana & pink or tortoise tones, the contamination of contemporary color and cult style give this original design an unexpected twist.


Persol 0009 – Dare to be original

The original two-for-one-look, the four-lens frame was avantgarde when it was first made, and it’s avantgarde now. All about juxtapositions, the two-tone frame concept features ad hoc colorways, with a genderfluid palette of blue & pink, black & white, dark & light green or orange & light blue framing its unexpected look, while the JW Anderson logo on the left temple and signature Persol temple tips, as well as a dedicated leather case, linen pouch and box set underline its exclusive identity.

Each Limited Edition style comes with dedicated packaging, including an exclusive JW Anderson x Persol leather case, fine linen pouch and blue print box. Pick up the iconic 649 and 0009, available in eight colourways online or in-store now.
