DAVID Beckham is planning to launch his own range of underwear.
The soccer heartthrob — who has modeled briefs for Emporio Armani — wants to follow his wife Victoria into the fashion world once he has retired from the sport.
“David is 35 and knows he won’t be playing soccer forever,” a source said. “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.”
David — who is currently playing for Los Angeles Galaxy — is being backed in his plans by his manager Simon Fuller and fashion designer Stella McCartney’s husband Alasdhair Willis.
He also wants Victoria — who launched her debut collection in 2008 and is now a well-respected member of the fashion world— to be heavily involved in the project.
“Alasdhair and Simon are focused on turning David into a major fashion presence,” the source said. “Victoria’s also very excited. She obviously thinks David is the sexiest man in the world and perfect to front the range.”
