David Beckham H&M expansion

David Beckham is following in his wife Victoria’s fashion footsteps (well, kind of…!) with the expansion of his long-term relationship with H&M. The David Beckham H&M collections will no longer be just pants and leisurewear (or David Beckham Bodywear to give it its proper name).

Victoria is safe for the moment, as the only designer in the marriage, then. And men of the world will soon be able to share David’s globally-recognised sense of style.(That’s what H&M say.)

David Beckham has also created a new Bodywear spring collection for H&M. Both collections will be launched in stores and online worldwide on 5th March 2015.

Oh, and here’s a wee video of behind the scenes at the Modern Essentials shoot.
