Victoria Beckham has a lot going on lately–the Glamour issue she guest edited and covered just came out; she’s preparing for her Spice Girls reunion performance at the Olympics; and in the midst of all that, she’s expanding her fashion empire. Her new line of products is inspired by a personal challenge–her inability to see.
We’ll admit optics was not the first category we expected Beckham to go into, but she has said that her designs generally stem from her own insecurities and this line is no exception. “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.”
While Beckham has probably been photographed more often with sunglasses on than without, she’s never allowed herself to be photographed with eyeglasses. But, it sounds like that could change.
According to a release, the collection is a collaboration with Cutler & Gross and comprises six styles, each of which comes in three colorways and has a “refined, diamond faceted ‘V’ on each tip. The below model is called the “kitten” (not a surprise as we already knew VB has a thing for cats). Handmade in Italy, a pair will set you back $410 – $530.
So which style does Beckham wear? The “heavy square,” a unisex style that David wears too! How cute. “It will be nice to see where I will be going for once,” she said.
Perhaps she’ll debut them at the Olympics closing ceremony. They are pretty Posh…
