Isabelle Olsson, the designer behind the state of the art Google Glass has designed a new pair only a year after the initial lenses debut at the Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2013 show last fall. Clearly catered toward a young demographic, the tortoiseshell frames are perfect for the tech hipster type.

Modeling the glasses is Google Glass marketing manager, Amanda Rosenberg, who’s been at the forefront of the frames from the beginning. Olson posted these pictures up to her Google+ account saying, “My muse Amanda looking great in the frames I designed for her…” The wider-frame lenses is a far cry from the rectangle, ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ style frames from before.

For those of you wondering what the glasses do, it has a combination of functions that include: taking photos, recording live and getting directions. We’re hoping to see these on a runway this week… hopefully.
