The hotly-anticipated fourth season of Money Heist just hit Netflix. While the show’s tense story writing and action-packed scenes are what keep our knuckles white, the style is what keeps us at the edge of our seats. The Professor’s instantly recognizable Persol frames are a key part of his character and though, yeah, he is literally printing money very illegally, we can’t deny that he does the ’70s sartorial vibe enviously well.

Now you can buy your own pair of Persol frames directly inspired by the show. Made in collaboration with Netflix, Persol’s ‘La Casa de Papel’ capsule collection features three styles, each available in several colorways and lens offerings made with premium Italian acetate, and Persol’s signature Meflecto design.

The La Casa de Papel model stands out in the trio thanks to its 24K gold-plated lenses, a clear callback to the Spanish Mint. But the coveted model is limited to just 350 pairs. To top it all off, each frame comes in a custom box, designed to look like a bar of gold.

La Casa de Papel by Persol $497

El Professor Sergio by Persol $317

El Professor Original by Persol $322
