I am sure you are all aware of my man crush on David Beckham at this stage. Yes another post about him, but it is that time year again were he releases another collection with H&M. Earlier this year the Modern Essentials range was attatched to David Beckhams name and I was very impressed as I wrote an earlier blog post about it (see here). This season I am just as impressed, as once again it is filled with classic and quality pieces that will fit seemlessly into any mans wardrobe, hence the name modern essentials.
This collection consists of 27 pieces that range from jumpers, bomber jackets, sharp tailoring, patterned shirts and classic coats. The price point starts at €14.99 and ends at €119. At these prices it makes it affordable to everyone. I was lucky enough to see the collection on wednesday after I attended the Dundrum Town Centre press day. I was really happy with the collection as I had seen the pictures it before hand. Some of my favourite pieces are even better in the flesh!
I really love this wool blend jumper. It has a nice preppy feel to it. It’s available in both a navy with camel stripes or grey with red stripes. I prefer the navy and camel as they are great autumn winter colours and has a smarter look to it. At €19.99 it is a steal for a wool blend jumper as you would expect to pay a lot more.
Another classic piece on my wishlist from this collection is the camel coat! A classic that every stylish guy should have in his wardrobe. Like all of the pieces in this collection, it is a steal at €119. I have tried this on and the fit is great. It goes with pretty much everything and will stay in your wardrobe for years to come.
Again I will stick with the camel theme, I have picked the camel slim fit blazer as a must have. There is a navy blazer also available, but I feel the camel blazer is a nice option to have especially at this time of year. Like I mentioned earlier, It goes with a lot making it a great versatile edition to add to your wardrobe. It will go great with a pair of dark slim fit jeans and a white shirt. or alternatively you could wear a black roll neck and trousers and the blazer adds a nice contrast to the outfit.
There is some great shirts in this collection. I really like this navy and white printed one. It’s not too in your face but adds a nice touch to any outfit. At €24.99 it’s a great price that won’t break the bank.
Now to the trousers. While there isn’t a great selection to choose from in this collection, I really like these navy twill trousers. At €39.99 they are at a similar price point to most other offerings from the high street. Having bought trousers from H&M, I know they are hard wearing and last a long time.
These trousers along with the printed shirt and camel blazer would make a great outfit for any occassion. It just goes to show that it really is a great capsule collection that can be mixed together seemlessly.
I hope you enjoyed my selections from the collection. Check out the rest of the collection here. why not check out the little film featuring David Beckham and Kevin Hart.
