For its second season, the Eyewear by David Beckham collection for fall/winter 2020 introduces new sunglasses and optical frames imagined by Beckham and developed by Safilo’s design team.
Combining an effortless British style with a sharp focus on detail and functionality, the new eyewear is dedicated to a consumer interested in a classic design with an international perspective.
New styles include the DB 7037/G/S pilot shape sunglasses, which are retro in inspiration yet contemporary in execution, as well as the vintage-inspired rounded optical frame DB 7021, which conveys an effortless and contemporary feeling in its bold volumes underlined by the geometric design of the temples.
The Eyewear by David Beckham collection features the distinctive Talisman, the iconic detail drawing inspiration from the wings of a bird and symbolizing power, protection and freedom, designed to be visible from the front and the side of the eyewear.
