Soccer legend and fashion icon David Beckham has revealed a glimpse of his debut ‘DB Eyewear by David Beckham’ range, following its official launch in Milan this week.
The collection, which he brought to life with the help of eyewear company Safilo Group, spans opticals and sunglasses with clean, modern silhouettes and a focus on “timeless” frame styles. The glasses are all fabricated in Italy.
“I’m so proud to share my first ever eyewear collection today,” Beckham wrote in a recent Instagram post, sharing images of himself sporting two of his new designs.
Beckham’s 10-year partnership with Safilo Group was first announced last year, with the star saying at the time: “I wear sunglasses all the time and this is a category that I love. So, it’s important to me to work with a partner who cares as much about the design and craftsmanship of the product as I do.”
Beckham, who is also a partner in the British heritage fashion brand Kent & Curwen and the ambassadorial president of the British Fashion Council (BFC), isn’t the only star to get into the eyewear game recently — November saw the celebrity duo Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez team up with Quay Australia on a series of sunglasses and frames, while Sarah Jessica Parker’s fashion label SJP also collaborated with Sunglass Hut on a collection that launched last year.
