If you're interested in Google Glass but want something a bit more stylish, wait no further, as Diane von Furstenberg's Made for Glass limited edition collection is launching in the US later today. Unveiled earlier this month, the collection designed by the iconic American fashion designer involves five new frames and eight new shades.

The Made for Glass collection launches later today, and will be available on Net-A-Porter and the Google Glass website for $1,800. There are five frames to choose from: Shiny Elderberry, Shiny Lagoon, Matte Java, Matte Ice and Shiny Ink.

MR-Porter, the men's fashion side of the website, is carrying three shades in the Titanium Collection for Glass for $1,650.

If you're a Glass Explorer, you can also pick up the individual DVF frames for $225 each. In addition to the new frames, there are two new shades, each coming in four color variations, which you can buy for $120 each.

Ahead of the launch of the eyewear, Diane von Furstenberg sat down with Google Glass lead designer Isabelle Olsson to chat about the design of the custom shades. She said that the unique design of the Glass unit allowed her to create new styles, like the aviator and the shield frames.

With Glass, Google has undertaken a minimalistic approach, with Olsson stating that her team "removed everything that wasn't absolutely necessary." Olsson also mentioned that it took over a year and a half for the design team to transform the initial prototype into the module that it is today.

"If you're interested in Google Glass but want something a bit more elitist and ridiculously expensive..."


I've said it a billion times and I'll say it again. Google glass has a lot of places it could be used, none of which involve the average citizen wearing them. They've already shown to be applicable in the medical and combative fields, and they were recently testing in airports.

They're definitely useful, but Glass should stop focusing on an audience that isn't ready yet.

This sounds like the perfect audience, people who have too much money and want fancy gadgets. I don't see a need to Google Glass or Google Gear yet. So let them sell to the mega rich until they figure out a reason to make them worth while.

This is cool why not design stuff for glass as it is something you wear it is a fashion statement like your clothes and shoes. People use their phones as a fashion accessory to buy in wallet cases and fancy cases for it or making them with crystals and what not. Fashion isn't just for clothes.

I think Google glass is not going to be too mainstream until price goes down. Google may device to scrap it too. I guess we'll see.

If I was a Google Explorer, an additional $225 for DVF frames would definitely interest me.
