It may be winter, but optical dispensaries are stocking their inventories with the latest sunwear lines designed to help protect patients’ eyes from damaging UV rays.

Marc By Marc Jacobs is offering a line of special edition sunglasses just in time for Valentine’s Day, which feature a black, acetate squared shape inspired by the 1980s. The collection also includes red hearts printed all over the frame and have a red metal core wire on the temples.

The latest sunwear collection from götti Switzerland features eight new pairs with distinctive colors and shapes with mirrored lenses: Pepe includes an integrated acetate ring, while Xandro’s style is more sleek with ultrathin metal. Kojak, Kosima, Kitty, and Kashan have intricate details and are more of a feminine shape, while Spin and Stow include a 360° rotation at the temple, allowing the outer edge to rotate inward and better fit in a thin eyeglass case.

MOSCOT also has a new line called MOSCOT Originals–Titanium Collection, which includes the Lemtosh-T, the Miltzen-T, The Nebb-T, and the Zolman-T. The four frames-which are some of the company’s most popular-have been refashioned in titanium.

“We are very excited about our new (collection) because it gives fans the best of both worlds,” said Harvey Moscot, co-president of MOSCOT. “If you love your Lemtosh, for example, but want to wear a metal frame, now you can.”

Made from strong, hypoallergenic, pliant material that can be easily adjusted for the perfect fit, the four new frames are available with coordinated mirrored sun lenses and in three new color combinations: charcoal/wine, navy/beige, and tortoise/pine.
