Victoria Beckham is often seen in over-sized sunglasses but never steps out in glasses she needs for being near-sighted because she feels too self-conscious about how they look.
“I do need to wear glasses but I haven’t found glasses that suit me or that I particularly like,” Victoria Beckham told WWD.
But fashion designer Victoria Beckham has now got round this problem by designing a range of glasses herself.
“I’ve always been quite self-conscious, so that’s why I’ve decided to do them myself,” she said.
Victoria Beckham launched her optical collection for spring/summer 2013 today.
The six styles, manufactured in partnership with Cutler and Gross, will go on sale at retailers at Silmo Paris from January 2013 costing from $470-$540.
The range will include aviator styles and large dark frames, some of which are unisex and others that are more feminine.
Victoria Beckham said her husband David is a fan of the heavy square frames which she also favors herself.
Each piece in the collection is handcrafted in Italy and is distinctive as a Victoria Beckham design by a “V” tip at the end of each arm.
Victoria Beckham, who is set to reunite with the Spice Girls for a special performance at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, already sells sunglasses as part of her fashion label but this is her first venture into prescription glasses.
She said she’ll wear products from her own range from now on, joking “it’ll be nice to see where I’m going for once”.
