Appearing in the latest ad campaign for Belstaff, David Beckham has apparently replaced a love for football with an affection for the open road. He has an extensive motorbike collection and apparently took a ride through the Buckinghamshire countryside ahead of the shoot with photographer Peter Lindbergh. He is joined in the campaign by models Andreea Diaconu, Tom Firth, Christian Gajdus and Will Bowden. And according to WWD:
During an event in Berlin, Beckham will be named the face of Belstaff’s 2014 global advertising campaign. The company will also unveil a special Beckham for Belstaff Collection, specifics of which could not be learned at press time.
And Grazia adds:
That’s not all as it has been announced that there will also be a special Beckham for Belstaff Collection. We have no details about the line so far, but we imagine he has been taking a few tips from the lovely VB. Back at the store opening he told us: ‘I love being able to work with great brands with a lot of history and when they are British brands it’s even better.’
