DB EYEWEAR BY DAVID BECKHAM
SPRING SUMMER 2020
David Beckham has signed a 10-year license with Italian eyewear specialist’s the Safilo Group. As a retailer, we had to get our hands on this exclusive collection with David Beckham and Safilo because the collection was both innovative in design and optical elements, qualities we knew our customer would love. We are now eagerly waiting for our stock to arrive.
“It is a great honour for me to welcome to our portfolio this brand that carries the name of one of the most famous and successful players in the world,”
Angelo Trocchia, CEO of Safilo Group
Although he is known for his football skills, David Beckham has turned into a worldwide fashion icon and has gone on to partner up with fashion brands Adidas, L’Oreal and now Safilo, to create another business venture in which he can connect with his fans. Safilo already owns the licenses for some of the biggest names in the fashion industry; Dior, Fendi, Givenchy and Max Mara. They design, manufacture and distribute all the eyewear collections for both sunglasses and prescription glasses. The David Beckham brand will now be added to their portfolio.
