    Phoebe Philo has been knocking it out of the park with her perfectly proportioned handbags at Celine, but they tend to fall a ways beyond our price range, or sell out before we get a chance to paw one in person.

    Gratefully, the label's new spring sunglasses are a perfect way to sample a slice of proverbial Celine pie: eight new styles of gorgeous acetate frames are all trendy without being "too much"--just like the rest of Philo's work for the brand. And though they will surely be pricey, we can't imagine them running upwards of $3,000 (like most of her handbags).

    Our favorites are a pair of arched sunnies in an almost wood grain-looking tortoise, though we'd happily settle for the graphic black-and-white Wayfarer style. A pair of nude bug-eyes are sure to be a hit among ice coffee sipping celebs, and tortoise aviators with slightly exaggerated propotions would flatter any face shape.

    Peruse the lookbook at www.celine.com, and contact Bergdorf Goodman or Barneys locations for ordering information.
