MILAN — The sound of screaming fans filled Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II on Tuesday, acknowledging David Beckham’s presence at the Cracco restaurant, in town to present his first eyewear produced and distributed by Safilo Group.

Wearing a discreet brown bomber jacket over a white shirt and pants in a lighter brown, by his own admission, Beckham’s style has evolved into a “more classic, very British” one, after “having tried daring clothes, glasses and hair over the years.” This look is reflected in the DB Eyewear by David Beckham line, which is understated, sleek and elegant. The soccer champion convinced the Safilo team to avoid spelling out his name on the glasses, so that the logo consists of his initials discreetly lasered on the lens and positioned as a detail internally on the arms. What is called the “talisman,” a metal detail originally inspired by the wings of a bird, and “a symbol of power, protection and freedom” is another unique sign. The wings evolved into an angular shape that marks the collection, and is designed to be visible on the front and the arms.

“I am a details-oriented person, to the point that I can get annoying, and we worked on the talisman to get it perfect and distinctive, it’s important because it helps make the collection stand out,” explained Beckham in his approachable and friendly way. Speaking of the monogram, he said it would help make the glasses “classic, giving longevity” to the accessories. “We wanted it to still be fresh in 10 years,” he added.
