London, Jan 9 (IANS) Fashion designer Stella McCartney is expanding her accessories business by launching her optical eyewear frame line next month.

The 41-year-old is expanding her accessories business with the stylish frames in a range done through a licence with Luxottica, which has handled Stella's sunglasses collection since 2009.

"Optical is more and more part of fashion. If you actually take a moment to look around, you are surrounded by optical both as a necessity and a statement. It is exciting because it says something new, all ages express themselves through optical," femalefirst.co.uk quoted McCartney as saying.

The frames, which retail from $230 to $245 and are available in burgundy, taupe, black, teal and tortoise, are made from 54 percent natural materials, including cellulose and natural plasticisers.
