Google Glass headsets designed by fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg are now available for purchase in the States. Earlier this month, Google announced a partnership with the designer to launch a range of headsets via von Furstenburg's studio, DVF. The line, known as "DVF | Made for Glass," is the first of its kind, and includes five new frames and eight "chic" shades. Each frame with Glass and prescription lenses retails for $1,725 while the sunglasses cost $1,620.
After enduring mockery for the general Glass aesthetic, Google has gone to great lengths to make the headset more fashionable. In January, the company launched its in-house Titanium collection, a considerably more stylish departure from the original design. Make no mistake: regardless of the design, Glass is still very much a wearable for your face, and it still hasn't quite escaped its inherent awkwardness. But, the high price aside, designing with fashion in mind helps push more to the masses. Interested buyers can pick them up on Google and Net-a-porter.com.
