VB thrilled with Beckham for Belstaff

David Beckham's wife Victoria is "excited" about his Belstaff collection.

The former soccer star is teaming up with the company to create a nine-piece capsule collection. He was also announced as the face of their 2014 global advertising campaign yesterday.

During the creating process, David's fashion designer wife was extremely supportive of his choices.

"She's very proud. When I was in New York with the team, I kept sending her pictures of the stuff we were doing, and she was almost more excited than I was," he laughed to WWD.

He also seems to have the approval of his two-year-old daughter Harper. She helped her dad chose the design for a vintage-style Beckham 2014 Belstaff badge.

"I had a number of badges to choose from, I laid them all out in front of Harper and she picked it," David smiled.

One reason David is a fan of the brand is because of its easy-to-wear pieces. He finds the company's clothes particularly comfortable when on his motorbike and felt honoured to see his face on its walls alongside other famous names.

"It's obviously a very British brand, and they design clothes I like to wear, especially as I ride a bike a lot. They got me straight away," he continued. "[Working with the creative team was] really easy. The mood board in the offices was filled with pictures of me riding a bike, plus Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. I've always loved Steve McQueen. Even wearing something as simple as a white T-shirt, to me he's the epitome of effortless style."

Items in the range include a dark red biker jacket, a multi-pocket waxed cotton all-round jacket and a canvas shoulder bag.

Belstaff have said the prices will range from $395 to $1,895.
