David Beckham is H&M's latest signing - the footballer and fashion icon has teamed up with the Swedish high street store to launch his bodywear range for men.
"Over the past year, I've been developing my Bodywear range with my team and I'm extremely positive about what we have designed and produced," Beckham said. "The final piece in the jigsaw was a retail partner who has the vision and capability to distribute these products globally. In H&M we have found the perfect partner to collaborate with going forward, I'm excited and looking forward to showcasing the range to H&M customers from February."
"This partnership with H&M is an important step in the evolution of David's journey from sporting hero to entrepreneur and icon", says Simon Fuller, David Beckham's long time business partner. "H&M's enthusiasm and support for this venture, combined with their scale and reach, will continue to enhance the power of David's image around the world."
The collection - which is not a collaboration but rather a long-term distribution partnership - will be launched on February 2 2012 worldwide, in time for Valentine's Day.
The range will be available from 1800 H&M stores in around 40 countries worldwide. We know what we will be buying our significant others already, don't you?

An outfit may play with the gender divide, mixing masculine elements and feminine ones into a mashed bowl of androgynous aspirations. But for Dolce & Gabbana the separation is a little clearer. For their fall 2011 campaign the girls are either utterly feminine in sparkling dresses and leather belt purses, or decidedly masculine. While the masculine outfits naturally carry that androgynous sensuality, they don't venture to incorporate any traditionally feminine elements. Just pants, brogues, and tuxedo jackets topped off by rockabilly hairstyles and perhaps some thick-framed glasses.

Angelina Jolie is indeed the new face of Louis Vuitton. The actress has spoken for the first time about shooting her Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign in Cambodia. The actress is barefoot and without makeup, in a wild natural landscape, with a Louis Vuitton bag. It is estimated that Jolie has received for this contract $10 million. It is her first picture in the campaign, and knowing the actress’s nonconformist personality, it is a campaign far from the glamour.

It didn't take long for the aftershock of John Galliano's departure from Dior to be felt. In fact, those waves have rippled their way through the fashion house's resort 2012 collection in the form of a offering that entirely lacks the vintage drama Galliano used to bring to the brand. Even at first glance, it's clear that Galliano's influence no longer forms the base matter of the concept or the clothing.

Good news for those who have been craving some more royal wedding glitter. There was another one this weekend, 2 July 2011. It’s the event many thought would never happen: the marriage of Prince Albert of Monaco, the 53-year-old bachelor head of state of the tiny but rich principality on the Cote D’Azur, and Charlene Wittstock, a South African Olympic swimmer 20 years younger. The state may be small, but the event was extravagant.
The clothes we put on are not just something we wear... they show how we are feeling. And today I am feeling free, as when on holidays during a sunny day by the seaside.
Skirt and Top - H&M
Snake Buckled Satchel - New Look Blitz Front Bow Dressy Pump - Dune
Red Sunglasses - Vogue
Bourjois So Laque T25 Red Casino
Abstract Swirl Silver Ring Topshop
What are your thoughts on the look of the day?
