Italian eyewear company Persol is no stranger to the cinematic world, previously worn by the likes of James Bond in Daniel Craig’s debut as the British super spy in Casino Royale. Now, the brand has tapped the massively popular Spanish Netflix series Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) for a special three-model collection, inspired by the enigmatic El Profesor.

The highlight of the three-pack is no doubt the Limited Edition La Case de Papel, featuring a sleek black acetate frame carrying 24k gold-plated lenses. The rest of the collection include an El Profesor Original model and an El Profesor Sergio silhouette, both available in black or brown.

To pick up a pair of glasses from this Money Heist “El Professor” limited capsule collection, visit Persol’s official website.
