Will Retirement Leave Beckham More Time For
Modeling In Undies Fashion?
We sure hope so. We know the spritely 38-year-old became famous for footie in the first place, but we wouldn’t mind if his just-announced retirement from the game opened more time in his schedule for hanging around sans shirt. Of course everyone’s calling dibs on David Beckham now that he’ll be stepping off the pitch, but a representative from his management agency, Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment, confirmed to WWD that he’d continue working with H&M and Adidas, and a source from H&M said:
“David Beckham is a great sportsman and a great style icon, and to us that is how he will be looked upon also in the future. We are very happy with the collaboration and look forward to launching the new collection this autumn.”
Great, more pantsless posing is surely on the horizon. Vogue speculates that David might be launching his own menswear line, and the mag dreams of a husband-wife collaboration with Victoria, who shocked the fashion world with the actually nice eponymous line that’s formed her post-Spice Girls career. But, with her desire to design luxury clothing for the fanciest of fêtes, and his penchant for tossing threads aside to show off enviable abs, their creative visions do seem somewhat at odds. Maybe he’ll just keep banging out fragrances.
While the world awaits Mr. Posh’s next move, let’s all take a look at his H&M campaign that single-handedly brought soccer to the United States (or something like that). Happy Friday!
