Iris Apfel Inspires and Designs Eyewear (Yup, All of Them Are Oversized and Round!)

Any mention of Iris Apfel and the first thing we picture is her signature oversized specs. Now the fashion icon's round-framed look is being recreated by eyebobs, with a limited edition glasses style called the "Iris" (available this January on Eyebobs.com and at select retailers).

Apfel is also teaming up with the eyewear brand to create a full "eyebobs by Iris Apfel" collection, set to launch in 2013. The selection will include readers, sun readers and polarized sunglasses, affordably priced between $75 to $99.

Given her recent collaborations with HSN and Yoox.com, it seems the 90 year old is having something of a late life career change (she done everything from interior design to White House restoration). Jewelry, glasses…what do you think she will choose to toy with next? [WWD]
