David Beckham inspired by Sean Connery

Former football star David Beckham recently revealed that his new swimwear range for Swedish clothing manufacturer Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M) is inspired by Sean Connery who plays James Bond in Dr. No

Beckham has launched his first collection of swimming trunks for the high street brand, reports a popular portal.

“Sean Connery in Dr. No was definitely on the reference board when we started. Old Bond movies were a big reference,” he said.

“The bodywear range has been great since the launch in 2012, so when the swimwear idea came up, we were all over it. The board shorts are something I think will go down well – everyone likes a comfortable pair of shorts. Not everybody likes the tight ones,” he added.

Beckham has made sure board shorts are a big part of the collection.
