We're Calling It Now--DVF's Google Glasses Are Going To Be All Over Street Style Blogs
June 3, 2014
Wearable tech in the fashion world isn’t anything new. Alexander Wang‘s Spring 2013 collection featured glow-in-the-dark clothing and accessories, while Tracy Reese, Milly and DVF all sent models down the runway in Google Glass back in 2012. Now one of these three lady designers is teaming up with the tech giant once again, and that would be Mrs. Diane von Furstenberg. The designer is creating her own line of Google’s internet accessible eyewear to be sold on Net-A-Porter, which will be the first outside website to carry Google Glass.
The 3-piece DVF Made for Glass collection features an optical frame available in five colors and two sunglass styles that each come in four colorways. Isabelle Olsson, Google’s lead designer for Glass, tells WWD, “The titanium [look of the first Glass models] was designed to be unisex, so the cool thing about the DVF [offering] is that it’s catering to women.” She described the optical style as an oval cat-eye shape, which comes in colors like a translucent light pink, glossy black, matte brown, matte frosted white and teal. The sunglasses come in aviator and bug-eye styles, which are both available in a subtle gradient or mirrored lens.
For those of you lucky enough to already own Glass, you can get the DVF shades at google.com/glass as an accessory addition. The optical frames retail for $225 and sunglasses for $120. And if this is your first foray into chemistry class-inspired eyewear, you can grab a pair of DVF’s from Net-A-Porter, which will sell a $1,700 packaged bundle including: Glass, DVF optical frame, a sunglass style, mono earbud and a case. Expect it all to hit June 23rd, and then to see DVF’s Glass creations immediately on the street style circuit soon after. We’re calling it now.
