Football Star and heartthrob David Beckham is launching his own underwear line.
Beckham has modeled briefs for world’s top designer Emporio Armani and would soon follow his wife Victoria Adams, former Spice Girls member, into the world of fashion and modeling once he has retired from “soccer”-ing.
According to a source, ‘David is 35 and knows he won’t be playing soccer forever. But he’s an icon for men all over the world and he wears pants like no one can – so it makes sense for him to launch his own.’
Beckham is currently playing for Los Angeles Galaxy. He is being supported in his plans by his manager Simon Fuller and fashion designer Stella McCartney’s husband Alasdhair Willis.
He also wants his wife, who has just launched her debut collection in 2008 and is now a well-respected member of the fashion world , to be deeply involved in the project.
The source added to the News of the World newspaper: ‘Alasdhair and Simon are focused on turning David into a major fashion presence. Victoria’s also very excited. She obviously thinks David is the sexiest man in the world and perfect to front the range.’
