Victoria Beckham is to expand her fashion empire with a range of optical glasses frames.
Beckham’s optical range is to consist of six styles, each in three colourways, including black, tortoise, topaz, yellow and forest green. Each pair is made of acetate and metal, hand crafted in Italy and emblazoned with a diamond faceted ‘V’. The collection is planned for a January/February launch and is expected to be stocked by Harrods of London.
Victoria’s spectacle range may be an unexpected projected for the Spice Girl-turned-designer, but has spanned from her own struggle to find the perfect pair of glasses. “I do need to wear glasses — [but] I haven’t found glasses that suit me or that I particularly like,” Beckham told WWD. “I’ve always been quite self-conscious [about this], so that’s why I’ve decided to do them myself.”
