In addition to the eye candy, football legend turned menswear designer will be spicing things up as he launches his autumn range for David Beckham Bodyware range for H&M. The new collection will feature new styles and fresh trends with a focus on comfort, fit and function.
The 39 year old said the new pieces have a real energy about them and he genuinely enjoyed creating them for the highstreet fashion brand known for its high profile collaborations. “I hope people like them as much as I do.” said Beckham.
New this autumn are checked woven pyjama pants in cotton poplin, in a fresh shade of blue. Other new styles include colour-blocked Henleys and Long Johns that contrast cotton with wool, as well as heavy knit cotton boot socks and cotton beanies.
Colour-blocking and stripes are the main themes, especially on a crewneck sweatshirt, where a trim of vertical stripes contrasts with the grey colour-blocked body and sleeves. This trim of vertical stripes is also found on pyjama t-shirts, jersey pyjama pants and shorts.
Cobalt blue is the key shade of the season, complimenting the classic shades of grey and black that run through the collection, as with the horizontal striped Henley’s in blue and black or shades of grey.
The David Beckham Bodywear for H&M has been a huge success since its debut collection appeared in stores in February 2012. The collection has now grown to include a childrenswear range with similar offering as the men.
The new autumn collection will be available in stores from the 21st August.
