We're sure your shades are very fetching, but can they store 4 gigabytes of MP3s? Calvin Klein ushers in the sunglasses of the future: "Ck Calvin Klein is fusing fashion and technology by launching an eyewear style featuring a 4GB USB port located in the right temple of the frame. This eyewear evolution allows for convenient transport of data-digital information, pictures, media clips and music. Designed for men and women, the eyewear comes in two styles with three color choices and will hit specialty stores in October for a retail price of $199." [WWD, subscription req'd]
