Jee Whiz

Jee Vice is the hottest new line of optical couture taking over Hollywood one starlet at a time. Lindsay Lohan was seen sporting their "Evil" frames last Saturday. While LiLo opts for classic black, Jee Vice frames come in bold colors and patterns, which unlike many other brands, are not dwarfed by gaudy labels and names on the temples. Instead, these frames feature tiny peacesigns and are optically equipped with high-quality Carl Zeiss lenses. Founded in France in 2003, Jee Vice has been featured in fashion magazines all over the world. You don't need to party like a rockstar to look like one, right Linds?

Supernatural Studios' Sunnies

Supernatural Studio is a design firm with some amazing designs for traditional objects.

"Founded by Zissou in London in late 2004, Supernatural is a different type of creative studio. What began as a CG creative collective working on animation direction, special effects, product design and art direction, has evolved into a platform for the exploration of art, design and technology. Our commissions for the advertising, broadcast, fashion and music industries continue while producing a range of products and fine art projects."

They've got this incredible design for "Eyewear" on their site. This pair of sunglasses looks ultra-futuristic and super sleek. Notice that the frame is one piece and that there is no joint connecting the temples. They say:
"Sunglasses are an essential way of protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays, but what if your eyewear could do more... watch this space."
