Victoria Beckham's fashion career takes another blow as men's line is pushed back

Victoria Beckham suffered another setback today as plans to launch a men’s line of her jeans collection were put on hold after retailers were unwilling to stock it.

The former Spice Girl was set to launch the new dVb line at Kitson boutique in Los Angeles but it has now been pushed back until next year.

The delay comes just months after the denim range was relegated to the bargain basement bins of several US boutiques while many announced they would no longer carry it because of poor sales.

The singer-turned fashion designer fell out with Kitson earlier this year when the owner criticised her for failing to turn up for promotional work.

She was later pictured making an appearance at the store amid reports that it was about to drop the line.

A rep from dVb has denied reports that the collection is in trouble, insisting that it is currently being manufactured but is likely to reach stores later than anticipated.

Despite the negativity surrounding her design career Victoria recently revealed that she is hoping to debut a couture collection at New York Fashion Week as well as launch a new fragrance.

The mother-of-three recently spoke of her love of fashion, revealing that she would love to have a little girl to pass her clothes on to.

‘I'd love to have a girl – just for all the clothes I've got to hand down,’ said the 34-year-old who has three boys with footballer husband David. Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, 5 and Cruz, 3 .

She also blasted the never-ending rumors she's suffers from an eating disorder.

‘I've been accused of not eating for ten years. If I hadn't eaten, I'd be awfully hungry,’ she told Allure magazine.
