Eyebobs Iris SunglassesThe world's most stylish 90-year-old, Iris Apfel, has teamed up with eyewear company eyebobs for a limited edition range of sunglasses. The celebrity inspired shades take their cues from the colorful glasses that have become Apfel's trademark.

It's an appropriate pairing, as eyebobs have been dubbed "the designer of eyewear for the irreverent and slightly jaded." That description certainly suits the irrepressible Ms Apfel down to the ground!

The eyewear collection will kick off with the release of the Iris frame, a round and oversized pair of specs just like the ones Ms Apfel favors. The style is available in both a sun reader and polarized pair of sunglasses. Proceeds from its sales will benefit one of Apfel's favorite charities, Lighthouse International. The non-profit organization is a fitting choice as it offers healthcare services to vision impaired people of all ages. The Iris frames will hit stores in January, giving fans a taste of the forthcoming complete eyebobs by Iris Apfel collection.

This comprehensive range, featuring readers, sun readers, and polarized shades, will be on the shelves of optical stores and specialty outlets in 2013. The line will be relatively affordable, with the sunglasses starting at $75 and topping $95.
