Chiara Clemente Gets Behind Persol's Lens

Last night at New York’s Hôtel Americano, Interview Magazine , and eyewear atelier Persol threw a spring soiree to fete Chiara Clemente’s new film for the brand. Dubbed “Atelier Persol,” the short tracks eight artists (including Vanini Sorrenti, Sébastien Tellier, and Fabio Novembre) throughout their residencies at a Florentine palazzo.

“Persol curated the selection,” said Clemente of the lineup, “and filming was quite hectic! You can imagine going from eight different rooms, with eight different artists—every day there was so much happening.” Shot in the style of a documentary, the film features interviews with the artists (all of whom don strategically placed eyewear, of course), shots of their processes, and magnificent vistas of Florence’s Duomo and surrounding hills.

Clemente added that she’s a new Persol convert. “I got a pair that are a little bit smaller,” she said, referring to the brand’s popular 649/Steve McQueen style aviator. “They bring out the Italian in me. There’s something about them that reminds me of the Italian movie stars of the fifties and sixties. Maybe they’ll bring me good luck.” Catch the trailer of Clemente’s film, above.
