Posen is collaborating with international sunglasses brand Illesteva for this collection. The limited-edition sunglasses will come in two shapes – a cat style and an oval frame, with colors yellow, clear, tortoise, green, brown and leopard print. Each pair will retail for about $300. 

"As we develop the Zac Posen brand, sunglasses allow me to maintain an aspect of flare and attitude for clothing that transitions into day," said Posen to Women’s Wear Daily. “[This collaboration with a small company] allows me to have a focused collection in the first stage of our eyewear development.”

The line is expected to debut in April. The frames will be on sale on illesteva.com, as well in boutiques including Colette and Opening Ceremony.
