I’m Not Obsessed.com had a story about Romeo Beckham, the 8-yr old son of David and Victoria, launching a line of designer sunglasses! I think I’ve heard it all now. The things you can achieve when your mum and dad are like British quasi-royalty. I wonder if she’s rocking his first set?
If he’s actually doing something, it’s kinda cool, but I’d love to be in on those design meetings. “So, Romeo, what size should the rim of the frame be?” asks industrial designer guy. “I don’t know, is Power Rangers on? I need a snack…cheddar bunnies?” says Romeo Beckham.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Romeo Beckham just signed a deal to create a line of children’s shades. No seriously.
“Romeo has a real eye for fashion. He has strong opinions on what works and what doesn’t, and has been badgering David and Victoria for months about designing his own sunglasses. It is no passing whim – Victoria said she’d only back the project if he was certain he wanted to do it.”
Rumor has it that we can expect pals Suri Cruise, Leni (Heidi Klum’s daughter) and Gordon Ramsay’s four children – to model the frames.
Turns out there is a gap in the market – or so says the source.
“There is a gap in the market for designer kids’ shades that are 100 per cent UV protected and trendy. The glasses are made especially for children and will have a cool ‘RB’ motif on one arm. The range was originally going to be called Bambino Beckham. Both Victoria and David are delighted.”
