Authentic Brands Group, the company that owns and manages The Estate of Marilyn Monroe, will be releasing a special collection of Marilyn Monroe eyewear with Allure Eyewear, WWD reports.

Officially known as the Marilyn Monroe Sun and Optical Collection, it consists of limited edition ‘The Marilyn’ sunglasses (cat-eye shaped and bedazzled with Swarovski crystals, naturally), The Silver Screen Sun collection, and the Optical collection.

The frames start from $98 and top out at $495 for the limited edition sunglasses. All profits from the sales of ‘The Marilyn’ style will go to Hollygrove, the orphanage where Marilyn lived as a child.
