Many of the frames in their SPX Art line are worth a look....
My wife loves her Silhouette titaniums (the comment on the case is right on, but the newer cases on the SPXs are nicer), I on the other hand dislike them for the reason that I cannot fold the temples to hang the glasses on my shirt when hopping in and out of stores into bright sunlight. I much prefer Lindberg's titanium, eg the Strip wire (albeit 1.5 times the cost of Silhouettes). As for the SPX line, I think the jury is still out on the longevity of the colour (according to my optician).
