Google Glass turning into a fashion accessory; DVF designer collection goes on sale

As promised, the DVF | Made for Glass collection is now up for grabs online. Earlier this year, Google had teamed with DVF, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg’s studio for its newest range of Google Glass designs. The DVF collection adds five new frames to the Glass, which are up for sale via Google and online fashion retailer Net-a-Porter.


The five new shades and eight frames have been designed especially for women. The frames are available in five colours namely, brown, shiny lagoon, shiny elderberry, matte java and matte ice, and will cost $300 additional, which means the combination will cost $1,800. Meanwhile, the original Titanium Collecion frames are also available on MrPorter for $1650.


Looks like, Google is looking to add the fashion element to its Glass. DVF also took the Glass to New York Fashion week. Check out the photos here. Google has also partnered with Luxottica, which means Ray-Ban and Oakley-branded frames and shades for the Glass should eventually surface.

Moreover, seems Google also plans to take its Glass global, finally. It has already taken the first step by moving out of US, and headed to the UK. Google wants optometrists, sports lovers, online retailers, cooks and travellers to try out the Glass, and also looking forward to their feedback to improve the product. A grander commercial launch is expected sometime later this year.
