H&M Modern Essentials: Selected by David Beckham

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the lack of posts recently but work has been hectic lately!! I have not been asked to write this post by H&M, I just have a big interest in the collection especially when it involves one of my favourite style icons. Last Thursday March 5th David Beckham released his new bodywear collection for H&M, but he was also asked to pick his favourite items from the their Modern Essentials collection. Mr Beckham has always been able to pick his spot when shooting at goal, but he definitely hit the back of the net with his picks with this collection. I will be concentrating on his picks for the Modern Essentials collection even though his bodywear collection is always top-notch and I can vouch for that having bought many pieces from the previous collections.

The collection features many staples that would be found in any stylish man’s wardrobe. Items such as a white shirt, polo shirts,  sweatshirts and denim jackets are key items in the collection. The price range for the collection ranges from €7.99 to €59.99 which makes it very affordable and just like his bodywear and fragrance lines affordability has always been a big selling point with David Beckham.

Having seen the collection in the flesh when out shopping at the weekend, I found the products to be of excellent quality and are all really well made considering their price points. I also found that there is something for everyone in this collection regardless of whether you dress conservatively or you are a bit out there with your own style.

Here are my favourite pieces from the collection.
