TAG Heuer Avant-Garde Eyewear's CLUB collection celebrates color, with sunglasses in this season's hottest hues. The newly added purple color will take you through summer to fall and into winter seamlessly, making the best possible addition to your wardrobe. Not only is the iconic sporty eyewear stunning, they also feature polycarbonate shield lenses for lightness and shock-resistance. They offer 100 percent UV-A and UV-B protection, making them great for everyday use (pictured: $335).

The 2011/12 Autumn-Winter Prestige Collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld revisits the iconic Chanel chain, found most memorably on classic Chanel handbags. In the new sunglasses collection, the chain is woven with a strip of lambskin to form the temples and is on frames including butterflies, cat-eyes, oversized film-star square lenses or aviator. Longtime Lagerfeld muse Claudia Schiffer is the face of the new eyewear campaign.

The luxury eyewear collection from Marc by Marc Jacobs is a little easier on the pocketbook than the Marc Jacobs collection.

In addition to the curlicues, the collection also involves unique cat-eye shapes and multi-colored frames. The 60s style frames and heavy-handed decoration gives a touch of whimsy to a summer's day (pictured: $290).
