When some images of David Beckham in his undies arrive in your inbox, its probably just rude to ignore them. Thanks to H&M, we are able to share these rather lovely images with you. This is not just the stuff of your favourite daydreams, Mr Beckham has been shot in some very tight smalls to promote his debut Bodywear collection for H&M.
This first collection introduces nine underwear styles for men which will go on to form the products of the long-term unique partnership between David Beckham and H&M. Designed by David’s in-house team and sold exclusively at H&M, the focus is on fit, function, comfort and design, avoiding overt branding to present a range of new classics, comprising of briefs, boxers, vests, T-shirts, pyjamas and long johns. The result of eighteen months of research and development, the collection aims to set a new standard in men’s bodywear for the 21st century, although they make no claims that all men will look the same as our David when wearing them. Shame…
Available from 2nd February 2012 in 1,800 H&M stores worldwide as well as on-line.

So, last night we were delighted to be invited to meet Wayne Hemingway, and his son Jack. They spent the evening showing us around the Royal Festival Hall and telling us all about the plans for the amazing Vintage Festival. Its official, we cannot wait until 29th July when this event begins. We’ll have lots more info and some great shots for you over the next few days, so keep ‘em peeled. In the mean time, take a look the Vintage Festival’s brilliant blog, or read up on the event on our earlier post. Enjoy!
So, I know that we have posted today, but we found out about this campaign after we had gone live. I think its worth still featuring this if it will help raise money for this incredibly good cause- and Jill from Polka Dot encouraged me to throw caution to the wind and go ahead too. Thanks Jill!
We have donated to the British Red Cross and would encourage you to do the same. We have also donated to ShelterBox which was one of the first organizations asked by Japan to help and were on hand on the Saturday after the quake. Each large, green ShelterBox typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items.
Well done to Utterly Engaged for getting this blog campaign going. I hope that it brings in lots of additional donations to all of the charitable organizations who are working hard to help and support all of those affected.
With love from “Blink”
Upon reflection, I think that Little London Fields may well have been the perfect event for “Blink”. It was near to home. The location is already one of our favourite Summer hang outs. The music was a really good mixture of innovative newness. The stylish crowd provided us with the easiest days work that we have done in a long time! Thanks to all of you who stopped and let us shoot you. You are all stars. We are looking forward to next year’s event already…
So we have already posted on a couple of the directions spotted, and today we are looking at beautiful bold and bright pattern. Its a look we have extracted from a couple of our festi based reports, and this one was no exception. The festival atmosphere gives the attendees license to amp up the strength of their look with bigger scale and more heightened colour than would maybe stand on a normal day out to the park- but this is London Fields so maybe these are just the ladies usual ‘going to the park’ looks?

On the 7th August, one of London’s hottest style spots got even hotter! London Fields in East London hosted the newest addition to the London based festival roster, the very lovely Little London Fields, a brilliant new, free music and arts festival.
Approaching the site through the throngs of people on Broadway Market, perusing the beautiful vintage and handmade fashion stalls, mouthwatering local food stalls as well as the quirky shops that line the street; there was a tangible buzz in the air. Inside London Fields, Festival goers lounged on the grass enjoying the sounds, sights and cider in the park. The festival was a fabulous showcase of new and up and coming music maestros, performance collectives, artists and designers. Sadly our British weather blighted what was otherwise an idyllic Summer afternoon in the park. Umbrellas came out in the crowds and others ran for cover (under trees, into tents, nearby cafes and pubs). Yet the showers didn’t last too long and in traditional British spirit the festivities carried on into the evening with a plethora of after parties to choose from.
The eclectic and alternative selection of entertainment included some of the best up and coming bands like the Brighton based synth-pop band, Mirrors and Hackney’s very own delicious Black Cherry. The Carhartt sponsored disco tent was the perfect place for booty shaking to top tunes from Cut n Shut Disco. We were very tempted to part with cash in the lovely Arts and Crafts Marquee- especially loving James Brown’s prints.
The debonair folk in attendance certainly stepped out in style, sporting some gorgeously considered and studiously self styled looks. Looking at our shots of the festival goes to show the East is undeniably the life blood of London street fashion. We are starting this week of Little London Fields posts with a close up look at the details that make a look a ‘LOOK’! We have so many posts for you from this event that we are even posting on a Monday, which is very unusual for us, and we’ll have some double bubble two post days to come too. Hold on to your hats, this could be inspiration overload!

Thanks Cat for the genius shots and great reporting!
