Persol once again equips James Bond with designer
sunglasses for Casino Royale, where 007 gets through
two pairs - details of limited edition collectors
Persol's Casino Royale Sunglasses
15th January 2007
Persol return to kit James Bond out with the latest designer
sunglasses in Casino Royale. In the film, Bond goes through two
different models. When 007 first steps off the plane in the Bahamas,
he wears a pair with a metal frame (Persol 2244). Whilst in Venice
with Vesper Lynd, he switches to a turtle frame (Persol 2720)
with green tinted lenses (colour 24/31).
This second set (2720) was chosen as the style for a special
limited edition Casino Royale package. The sunglasses come complete
with a "Casino Royale Limited Edition" signature on the frame
and is packaged in a specially 007 branded case.
Persol only produced
200 units of the set and sold them exclusively through SunglassHut.com
in the USa and Persol's flagship store in Los Angeles, California.
If you are unlucky in tracking down a pair of the limited edition
sunglasses, Persol are shipping all 2720 models in a Casino
Royale branded case.
