The Thomas Crown Affair's original screening, top billed by Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway is considered iconic just like its big time actors. King of Cool, Steve McQueen immortalized one of the best-looking pairs of sunglasses ever designed: the 714 Persols (now, an icon all on its own). The company's reissuing the classic foldable design crafted with the same materials McQueen took to the screen: tortoise shell frames and those blue lenses. Men of status like McQueen and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z are only some of the model's fans and you might want to start being one yourself. The company would release a line inspired by the actor out next month, with the 714 being its "crowning jewel". Check out Valet for more details.
