INTRODUCING EYEWEAR BY DAVID BECKHAM
Already ambassadorial president of The British Fashion Council, the announcement of the Eyewear by David Beckham collection came as no surprise. Unveiled recently during Milan Fashion Week, Beckham has certainly torn up the fashion industry with his new 42-piece collection of sunglasses and optical frames, which are now available to buy online at shadestation.co.uk, and at their store inside luxury shopping destination Victoria Quarter, Leeds.
Partnering with Italian eyewear giant Safilo, who are behind the likes of Fendi and Dior, every frame in the Eyewear by David Beckham collection is crafted with the upmost precision, superior detail and signature design. In particular, 'The Talisman' is the brand’s most notable emblem which adorns all sunglasses and optical frames in the collection.
Drawing inspiration from the wings of a bird, this temple decoration symbolises power, protection and freedom. As well as this, the David Beckham DB monogram is subtly engraved on the left lens of each eyewear design, and on the inner tips of the optical glasses, as a hallmark of unique quality and style. The monogram is complemented by mineral glass lenses which are strong, lightweight and scratch resistant, available in a range of photochromic and polarised options that are perfect for every occasion.
Not only is the Eyewear by David Beckham collection stylish, but it has the substance to match. All frames have been crafted with expertly moulded end tips and ergonomically shaped temples to ensure a comfortable and reliable grip, whilst each frame is constructed in seamless, lightweight acetate or metal. Inside the temples, a chiselled metal core wire is visible which is engraved with the collection’s signature logo. And if you’re an avid bike rider, one style is specifically crafted with a lens narrow enough to fit under an open-face helmet – David Beckham DB7000/S sunglasses.
Now that you know the technicality behind the Eyewear by David Beckham collection, the inspiration has been drawn from the vintage styles of the 50s, 60s and 70s, along with his own personal stash and vintage shops visited along the way. Beckham confessed that over the years he has styled his fashion on icons such as Steve McQueen and Paul Newman, admitting they were very much a part of the inspiration in creating his eyewear collection. So, if you’re looking for a new pair of shades or optical glasses this year, you definitely won’t be let down by the new David Beckham eyewear collection.
The range packs everything from style and quality, to design and craftsmanship, to give you the whole package. Combining new trends such as yellow tinted lenses and double nose bridges, with classic frame shapes from pilot and squared to aviator and round, the DB Eyewear collection provides every man with the opportunity to enhance both their style and vision. And if you do require David Beckham optical glasses, they are available to order online complete with prescription lenses at Shade Station.
