Victoria Beckham has announced that she will be launching a new range of eyewear in 2013.

The fashion designer has designed a six-piece collection of glasses which she will debut at Silmo Paris on October 4, although it will not be available in stores until January or February, with each pair priced at approximately $410.

Beckham said of designing the range: "I do need to wear glasses - [but] I haven't found glasses that suit me or that I particularly like. I've always been quite self-conscious [about this], so that's why I've decided to do them myself."

She added: "I will be wearing my glasses now, and it will be nice to see where I will be going for once."

The frames are said to come in three colours, with styles ranging from "delicate and feminine" to unisex, and are made from metal and acetate.

Each pair is handcrafted in Italy and features a 'V' on its tips.
