David Beckham star in a new campaign to launch the spring collection of David Beckham Bodywear at H&M. Shot by director Nicolas Winding Refn, known for his movies Drive and Only God Forgives, the campaign debuted during the US Super Bowl.
In the action-packed plot, David is locked out of a photo shoot on a rooftop in just his underwear, with no way down. He has to go to great lengths to get to safety, performing all his own stunts in the process.
“It was so exciting to work with one of my favourite directors, Nicolas Winding Refn, on my new campaign for H&M. Nicolas pushed me hard to create an action-packed film, which shows off this season’s new heritage-inspired bodywear at its best,” says David Beckham.
“I loved working with David for his new campaign. He is a natural in front of the camera, and was fearless when performing his own stunts. The campaign is funny, smart and spectacular, and shows the many different sides of David’s personality,” says Nicolas Winding Refn.
The campaign features pieces from the Spring David Beckham Bodywear collection, which sees a fresh take on heritage. Stripes of varying widths are introduced on long-sleeved Henleys, vests and trunks, as well as varsity-style lettering on the back of long-sleeved raglan tops.
Also debuting will be David Beckham Bodywear pieces for kids. A mini-me collection for boys includes Henleys, vests, trunks, long johns and pyjama shorts. The collections will be available in selected H&M stores and online from January 30.
These new pieces join the core David Beckham Bodywear collection, which has already become a staple in the wardrobes of men worldwide since its launch in February 2012.
