Former Footballer To Release Moto Capsule Collection
David Beckham has played into reports he plans a greater involvement in the fashion industry by releasing a capsule collection with Belstaff.
The retired England footballer has created a ten-piece range for the brand, of which he is also the face, on sale today.
T-shirts, trousers, jackets and boots make up the collection, reported to have been modelled on vintage items already owned by the star.
Originally announced as a capsule of easy-to-ride-in pieces, the collaboration was previewed in Berlin back in November 2013.
In the run up to the launch, Belstaff’s site featured a countdown for the debut of the project.
It follows speculation that Beckham could soon set up his own label with consumer goods company Li & Fung and just one day after the premiere of his BBC1 show.
Speaking to WWD, the father-of-four said:
“Deciding to work with Belstaff was the easiest decision to make, as I already have a few vintage Belstaff classic jackets in my wardrobe. That, coupled with the fact I’m a biker, made it a perfect fit.”
“My moto capsule collection is a reflection of what I wear day to day when I’m biking or relaxing. I buy a lot of vintage pieces and my collection reflects that feel. It all fits together and I wear every item in it,” he added.
It adds to the 39-year-old’s other design ventures with H&M, which recently expanded into swimwear.
Prices in the Moto range start at £60 for a T-shirt, available in three colours, and top out with a leather jacket at £1,125. Trousers, including a multi-zipped leather motorcycle pair, come in at £875.
The collection is currently available exclusively on Belstaff.com, ahead of being rolled out in Belstaff stores worldwide later this month. Officials confirmed select global distributors will also carry the line shortly after.
