Reebok sells items near-identical to Victoria Beckham collection at a fraction of the cost

The former Spice Girls is flogging her Reebok collaboration, launched in New York on Tuesday, which includes a plain white cotton T-shirt, which retails at £63, and a black sweatshirt for £180.

A pair of casual jogging trousers are priced at an eye-watering £219, while a beanie hat – with Victoria and Reebok’s new logo emblazoned on the front – will set customers back a cool £99.95.

A pair of similar blue jogging bottoms, not from her range, would cost just £21.48.

The cheapest item in the range is a pair of socks, which cost £24.95.

But the fitness brand are selling nearly identical items on the same website for a fraction of the cost.



Victoria’s Nylon leggings are priced at £89.95, but the brand’s own version of the design are worth a budget friendly £17.

While a Reebok brand sports-bra, made from the same material, is half the price of Victoria’s version – which costs £62.95.

Victoria, 44, first announced her collaboration with Reebok last April and has spent the past nine months “personally testing” each item.

The former Spice Girl was joined at the launch of the debut line, held in swanky New York bar The Flower Shop, by her husband David, 43, son Brooklyn, 19, and his model girlfriend, Hannah Cross, 21.



When asked about her latest venture, Victoria explained: “The idea behind this collection was to mix the relaxed attitude of streetwear with the technical performance of sportswear, while staying true to the minimal aesthetic of my brand.”

“It was also important that I created something that is fashion-forward and can blend seamlessly into any wardrobe.

“These pieces can take you from the gym to the office, with the school run in between.”

WORKOUT FOR WALLET

VICTORIA Beckham’s latest collection is too Posh — and not even Sporty.

In fact, it’s only good for posing.

Stella McCartney’s Adidas range from 2005 is still going strong thanks to its stylish creativity. But there’s nothing here to warrant these prices.
