Just in time for the beach season, David Beckham presented his first swimwear collection. Take a look at the pieces he created in collaboration with H&M and modelled himself.
Summer is definitely here. Are you still looking for the perfect swimwear? Then check out David Beckham’s first swimwear collection. The pieces were created in collaboration with H&M and go on sale on the 22nd of May.
The collection includes board shorts, swim shorts and trunks that come in solid and colour-blocked variations. Prices for the Beckham swimwear pieces range from $25 for trunks to $34 for swim shorts, WWD reported.
Beckham is not only the designer of this collection, but he will model the new swimsuits himself. The campaign for the new line was shot by British fashion photographer Glen Luchford.
Our favourites are the navy board short and the white or khaki trunks. The trunks are special for the football star-turned-designer, too, because he allegedly wore similar ones to impress his famous wife, Victoria Beckham. As for her, the ex-Spice Girl maybe showed him the nice and creative side of fashion industry, making him want more of it.
Some people say that with Victoria’s connections in this industry, it won’t be so hard for David to get somewhere, but others think he doesn’t want her fashionista wife’s help because he has his own plans, goals and connections in the world of fashion.
After modelling several loungewear and underwear collections, some people say that it was time for David to have his own swimwear collection, too.
But his aim in fashion industry is not only showing his body. His most recent clothing collection for H&M was unveiled earlier this year during Super Bowl. In the TV advertisement, Beckham modelled the pieces himself, while running around on rooftops in London.
Before this commercial airing, it was announced that the superstar would like to try something else in designing. Being a father of four children, he would like to create a children’s wear collection to H&M. In this collection, there will be pieces for young boys, for example vests, Henley tops, long-johns and shirts.
So he really enjoys designing and plunged into creating his first swimwear collection. The first pieces of this offering will be available from May 22 in selected H&M stores and through the brand's online store.
