Romeo Beckham: He’s Designing Sunglasses. You?
What were you doing at eight-years-old, Kickettes? If your answer is “innocently playing on swing sets” or not-so innocently “shaving Barbie’s hair into a fetching fawk-hawk”, best you go sit on the naughty step. Clearly you’ve little career motivation.
Take a page from Romeo Beckham’s book of ambition: the little guy is following in his mum’s footsteps and is now signed up to design his own collection of designer sunglasses. Apparently Romeo B has a keen eye for fashion, and has been pestering his parents for his own shot at accessory design.
Names for the collection, (such as ‘Bambino Beckham’), were considered before being rejected in favour of the simpler ‘RB’, which will adorn the shades. Both Mr and Mrs Beckham are said to be thrilled.
It is unknown whether this foray into design will lead into other fash-opps for Romeo Beckham (NYFW next season anyone?), but is definitely another step on the ladder of world domination for the Beckhams. We can’t wait to see what he comes up with, and if he can convince celeb pals such as Suri Cruise and Gordon Ramsey’s kidlets into his designs.
Nothing like a celebrity kid to remind you of all that you have/not achieved in life, huh? Still, we adore little Romeo and will happily contribute to any pocket money causes he may put his little mind to.
