Victoria Beckham has created a range of prescription glasses.

The 38-year-old fashion designer has joined forces with Cutler and Gross to create a six-piece collection of optical frames after struggling to find a pair she likes to aid her short-sightedness.

She told WWD: ''I do need to wear glasses - 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.

''I will be wearing my glasses now, and it will be nice to see where I will be going for once.''

The spectacles come with a diamante-faceted ''V'' on them and are available in three colour variations for approximately £260 each.

Victoria's soccer star husband David Beckham is said to be a big fan of The Heavy Square style of frame shape, which have been designed for both men and women, while the range also consists of super-light metal aviators and bolder rectangular shapes.

The glasses have been handcrafted in Italy out of metal and acetate, and a spokesperson for the label revealed the line is expected to be available from retailers early next year.

Victoria's fashion empire also features a range of sunglasses, jeans, children's wear and a fragrance line entitled Intimately Beckham.
