Celebrity Sunglasses Benedict Cumberbatch
You don’t need to be Sherlock himself to know when a great design needs no substitute. Benedict Cumberbatch, the man who had stolen the hearts of women the world over- and broke them when he got married earlier this year- was spotted on multiple occasions sporting his favourite pair of spectacles.
Framing those twinkling blue-green eyes is often a sharp pair of popular black-rimmed Persol glasses. This square-shaped classic frame is a top selection for men who appreciate a frame that plays up their best feature, instead of obscuring it. These Persol PO3039V glasses maintain a simple yet modern look that features individual touches like the legendary Persol silver arrow on the temples and a hand-crafted frame available in a selection of colour treatments including Havana, Black or Cumberbatch’s choice of Matte Black.
Persol remains to be one of the world’s top luxury eyewear brands. It has produced some of the most distinguished and top-selling styles on the market, earning the brand fans across the globe who are everyone from Hollywood A-listers to fashion elites and international style seekers. Persol frames are expertly crafted in Lauriano, Italy and are made of the highest quality materials. Like Cumberbatch’s Persol PO3039V glasses, these stunning designs are not for fashion wallflowers. Known for its distinct design and show-stopping execution, Persol frames prove time and time again that style favours the bold.
Benedict Cumberbatch’s most acclaimed roles include portraying Stephen Hawking in the BBC drama Hawking (2004) – for which he was nominated for the BAFTA TV Award for Best Actor – and has starred in films like Amazing Grace (2006) The Last Enemy (2008) and Atonement (2007) and in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). His upcoming projects include playing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate. Besides films, Benedict’s works include years of theatre experience on the stage of the Royal National Theatre, Open Air Theatre and The Old Vic. He also does the voice-overs of several commercials for major brands like Jaguar, Sony and Pimms; and has even taken part in the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics with a short film on the history of London.
