DAVID BECKHAM has designed a collection for British brand Belstaff – a menswear offering inspired by “reviving luxury moto classics that have been redefined by Beckham’s iconic personal style”. The former footballer will also star in the label’s 2014 global advertising campaign, photographed by Peter Lindbergh in rural Buckinghamshire.
The campaign depicts a “band of brothers” led by Beckham, travellelling around the English countryside on their motorbikes, something Beckham enjoys off-camera too.
“I’ve always loved motorbikes,” Beckham told us at the Belstaff store opening in London. “But I’ve never really been allowed to ride them. Obviously now that I’ve finished playing, it’s enabled me to spend more time on my bikes, which is great.”
The Beckham for Belstaff collection will launch exclusively at Belstaff stores worldwide and Belstaff.com in March 2014, and will then roll out with select global distribution in June 2014. Retailers will have there hands in the air because one thing the Beckhams can do its sell clothes. Buy Belstaff Autumn Winter 2013 here
