Arsenal's Héctor Bellerín curates his own menswear collection with H&M
Hector Bellerin has made no secrets of his love for fashion. Having previously graced the pages of Esquire and his Social Media feeds dripping with strong looks and statements, perhaps the biggest statement is his latest collaboration with the high-street giant H&M.
The Arsenal and Spain defender has recently curated a collection of menswear with the Swedish retailer, creating a capsule of accessories and apparel with an emphasis on sustainability with the clothes made from either recycled cottons, nylons and polyesters.
Speaking to Hypebeast, Bellerin praised the "creative freedom" that he had working on the project. "The exchange of ideas from different people with different point of views and merging it together into one is also always one of my favorite parts of the creative process," he said.
The item-wise, the collection includes a light grey parka jacket and boxy beige blazer, as well as graphic-treated fleece sweatshirts and poplin button-up shirts.
According to Bellerin, a lot of the inspiration for the collection came from his everyday style. "I wanted it to feel comfortable and light and the earthy colors are inspired by nature," he said. "During quarantine I spent a lot of time outdoors and I’d often go for a walk and be inspired by the plant patterns."
As the footballer's fashion resume continues to grow, we're pretty certain this is just the first of several future collaborations.
