DVF | Made for Glass collection is hoping to make Glass a bit more stylish
Building on the fresh designs of the Titanium Collection, Google is announcing the "DVF | Made for Glass" eyewear collection to provide new frame styles for Glass. DVF, if you're not familiar, is iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg — a great partner to have if you're looking to combine high fashion with high tech. Starting June 23rd you'll be able to pick up five new Glass frame styles and eight new shades, considerably boosting the number of options available for Glass.
The second part of this announcement is that you'll be able to pick up the new DVF Glass frames and shades from Net-A-Porter (opens in new tab), an online fashion store, on the same day as they become available from the Google Glass store. M-Porter (opens in new tab) (the men's fashion side of the site) will also begin carrying the Titanium Collection frames for Glass at the end of June as well.

So out of all the ventures Google has had in the hardware game (Phones, tablets, Chromecast, Chromebook pixel) 3/4 of their product lines were made to be cheap. Doesnt mean they will follow same suit with glass, but obviously their track record makes it seem like they would bring the price down on glass. Im not even saying it has to be cheap, but $1500 for pretty dated hardware is really pushing it.
