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.
