Venus Williams continues to clock “aces” off-court, recently announcing the launching of her company’s first eyewear collection.

EleVen, the tennis star’s activewear brand, has partnered with Look Optic to create a limited-edition collection of unisex metal frames, according to Tennis World USA.

“Partnering with LOOK OPTIC and working with their team was a very collaborative experience,” Williams is quoted as saying in the article. “They truly understand EleVen’s commitment to creating products that empower you to look and feel your best. With any product we design, we want to be sure we are delivering nothing but the best for our consumers – this capsule is no exception, and the final product is something I’m excited to not only wear, but see you in as well.”

Called “Muse,” the capsule collection was inspired by the seven-time Grand Slam winner’s favorite vintage styles, according to the Look Optic website. It features the retail brand’s first-ever metal frame made from 100% recycled materials. While being ultra-lightweight, the frames are also sturdy as they are designed with the same TR-90 material used to make sports glasses. That durability is paired with style and an attention to detail, including a unique half-rim design set around prescription and scratch-resistant lenses that evoke vintage luxury.

Consumers can choose from offerings of smooth-matte sunglasses ($86), readers ($82), tinted lenses ($86), and light glasses ($92) in frames of silver, gold, pink and blue. 

“Blending fashion with function, Muse makes you look good and feel good,” Williams stated.
