Victoria Beckham rid herself of toxins during a lavish healing holiday in Germany this week (beg13May19).

The former Spice Girls star-turned-fashion mogul took some time off to detox at the Lanserhof health and spa resort in Tegernsee and she couldn’t be happier about the solo experience, joking her husband David Beckham missed out on not joining her.

“Loved staying at @lanserhof. Thank u @healingholidays and everyone who sent me their top tips on staying balanced,” she wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday as part of a caption attached to a close-up image of herself lying down on white sheets in a white towel and robe.

“Seems I need to be listening to true crime podcasts and having a glass of wine every now and then,” she added. “And if all else fails, keep wearing some good shoes. @davidbeckham you’re just jealous you didn’t come,” signing off the post with a laughing emoji and her initials.

The luxurious Lanserhof resort and medical centre is located in the Bavarian Alps with stunning forest views. The facility has psychological and traditional medicine practitioners on site to offer attendees state of the art wellness services as they detox as part of the company’s signature LANS Med Concept detoxification, purification and de-acidification programme, which lasts from 12 to 16 days. The detox programme costs around $10,000 (£8,000), according to The Mirror.

Victoria shared a number of updates on Instagram Stories as she detoxed at the wellness facility, posting shots from her adventures riding a bike in the Bavarian hills, the vitamins she took, and the Mondquelle branded water – a product which taps into special bio-frequencies in the body.

David Beckham has announced a 10-year partnership with sunglasses firm Safilo.

The former soccer star will lend his name to the brand, and the first David Beckham eyewear collection, which will also feature prescription sunglasses, is set to launch in January 2020.

The 44-year-old is adding another string to his fashion bow, after his recent split from partners, XIX Entertainment.

“Safilo has a long history of creating high quality eyewear brands,” David said in a statement. “I wear sunglasses all the time and this is a category that I love. So, it’s important to me to work with a partner who cares as much about the design and craftsmanship of the product as I do.

“I’m really enjoying the process of creating a collection with the Safilo team – and I can’t wait to launch it next year.”

The former England soccer captain and father-of-four is part-owner and the face of the contemporary men’s brand Kent & Curwen, and last year, set up a men’s grooming brand called House 99 with L’Oreal.

Angelo Trocchia, chief executive of Safilo Group, said it was an honour to welcome “one of the most famous and successful players in the world” to the brand.

The license with Safilo will use the “extraordinary power” of David’s fame “to further strengthen the presence of Safilo in the digital universe”.

The firm also produces and distributes eyewear under license for brands including Fendi, Dior, Givenchy, Moschino and Max Mara, as well as house brands, such as Smith, Carrera and Polaroid.

David Beckham’s fashion brand launches Stone Roses capsule collection for the summer

David Beckham and his partners at fashion brand Kent & Curwen have launched a new clothing line collaboration with British band The Stone Roses.

The Capsule Collection was first announced last year (18) and has now been unveiled on the label’s website.

The new line features the band’s iconic artwork, designed by guitarist John Squire, on a range of T-shirts, hats and jackets.

Kent & Curwen creative director Daniel Kearns grew up listening to The Stone Roses, according to a press statement.

“For him they are a band that established the look and the sound of the 90’s,” the release reads. “The music and artwork created by The Stone Roses now forms the inspiration for the Kent & Curwen Spring/Summer 2019 collection which celebrates the feeling of British summertime, iconic British music and British culture.”

The collaboration is a good fit for Beckham, who is a longtime fan of The Stone Roses and Kent & Curwen’s clothing.

The band dedicated a song to him during a show in Manchester, England in 2017, just before calling it quits on their reunion.

The launch comes just weeks after the Kent & Curwen label, which the former soccer superstar co-owns, unveiled its collaboration with hit TV show Peaky Blinders last month (Jan19).

The brand’s bosses showed off the new collection during London Fashion Week: Men’s as Beckham, his wife Victoria, their eldest son Brooklyn, and his model girlfriend Hana Cross watched.

The line, inspired by the BBC series about 1920s gangsters in Birmingham, was designed by Kearns.

The front rows at Paris Fashion Week: Men’s were awash with the A-list over the weekend (18-20Jan19).

Everyone from new fashion darling Jonah Hill to catwalk legend Naomi Campbell turned out for the menswear shows in the City of Light, with no one letting the riots held by the gilets jaunes (yellow vests) stand in their way.

At the Adidas MakerLab Presents: Here to Create show on Friday (18Jan18), designers Nicholas Daley, Paolina Russo, and Priya Ahluwalia were cheered on by Jonah, David Beckham, and Karlie Kloss.

“I’m definitely interested in young designers,” Jonah told WWD. “I need to know somebody personally and understand them as a person to enjoy their work. That’s when the real connection is made.”

The Wolf of Wall Street actor, dressed in plaid Marni suit over a Dr. Octagon T-shirt and Adidas sneakers, also spoke about his rise to become one of the poster boys for the “scumbro” look – a term describing a scruffy, no-fuss attitude to streetwear and personal grooming.

“I think terms like that are so funny. I would never identify as any sort of term,” he smiled. “Honestly I just don’t care. I wear s**t that I like and that’s it.”

To conclude the show, Adidas collaborator Pharrell Williams appeared at the end to congratulate the designers.

Elsewhere on Friday, Naomi, Kate Moss, and Robert Pattinson stepped out at the Dior presentation.

And on Saturday, Naomi was once again sitting front row, this time for Japanese designer Chitose Abe’s Sacai show.

She was joined by Pusha T, who confessed to being a big fan of Japanese culture: “I love Japan a lot. I’ve been going there for a very long time, since (label) BAPE’s fifth anniversary at least. (BAPE founder) Nigo introduced me to Japan, so it’s always been linked to him. Each trip is a different experience.”

While on Sunday, the likes of Courtney Love, Miles Kane, Virgil Abloh and Natalia Vodianova turned out for Hedi Slimane’s inaugural Celine menswear show.

“It’s an historic moment,” musician Kane told WWD.

Adam Levine has been named as the face of L’Oreal Paris’ Men Expert skincare line.

The Maroon 5 frontman is no stranger to fronting campaigns, having previously appeared in the marketing imagery for Yves Saint Laurent Beauty’s men’s scent, Y.

Now, Adam will be the brand ambassador for the French beauty giant’s popular Hydra Energetic range, and he is looking forward to encouraging men to adopt skincare regimes.

“To be the voice of this campaign is a great way to motivate men through the simple move of taking good care of the faces we’re given,” he said in a statement, according to WWD.

L’Oreal’s Men Expert line includes face washes, deodorants, shower gels, moisturisers, as well as beard care and shaving products.

The items are aimed at consumers aged over 30, and L’Oreal Paris global brand president Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou has explained that Adam was a natural fit for the gig due to his “multilayered, multifaceted” personality and “rock star status”.

“Adam Levine is one of the greatest musical artists in the world, an icon that reaches all generations as the lead singer of Maroon 5,” he commented of The Voice U.S. coach. “The unlimited energy he brings to his performances and life makes him a powerful spokesperson that embodies our vision of the modern Men Expert man.”

Adam’s advertisements for the Hydra Energetic line will begin to drop later in the month (Jan19).

In teaming with L’Oreal, the 39-year-old musician follows in the footsteps of Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who is a spokesperson for the Men Expert range, and former soccer star David Beckham, who is the face of male grooming range House 99.

David Beckham presented a Peaky Blinders-inspired fashion line through Kent & Curwen, the London brand he partially owns.

This was the second time the label has been featured on the London Fashion Week: Men’s schedule, with the sport star’s wife Victoria, eldest son Brooklyn, Brooklyn’s model girlfriend Hana Cross, and David’s mother Sandra in attendance, as well as Gordon Ramsay, Dior Homme designer Kim Jones and Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.

The collection, which was unveiled on Sunday (06Jan19), paid homage to the BBC series about 1920s gangsters in Birmingham and was designed by the brand’s creative director Daniel Kearns.

“(I’m) a big fan of the show and our brand has always been about the look. It keeps that authenticity,” David told The Guardian of the collaboration, adding that the iconic flat cap seen on the television show has a special relevance to his family.

“I got that from my grandad. I wore his from a very young age. Brooklyn has taken it on as well.”

Speaking to WWD, 19-year-old Brooklyn insisted that he and his father dress like the Peaky Blinders characters “every day,” and sported a collarless shirt and peg trousers from the Kent & Curwen collection for the show.

The range also got the approval of David’s fashionista wife Victoria, who recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of her eponymous fashion house. She supported her husband’s latest project wearing a grey tweed suit with flared trousers from her fall 2019 pre-collection.

“This collection was very honest and true to David and his style,” she smiled. “And the show was beautiful, too.”

David Beckham debuted an unexpected style choice for a bold new magazine spread by sporting turquoise eyeshadow.

The retired soccer star appears on the latest cover of Love magazine adorned in a white blazer and a beige, pin-striped button-down suit custom made by Dior – but its his choice of brightly coloured eye makeup that turned heads.

The 43 year old’s choice of cosmetics is complemented by his floral neck tattoos.

In the accompanying interview, Beckham discusses struggling to find a sense of self off the field.

“I was always that kid in the corner that didn’t really say much. I knew that once I was on the field, I was confident. It was all I ever wanted: to be a professional footballer,” he told the publication.

“That’s how my career started and that is where I felt most at ease, most confident and happiest,” he shared of life as a sportsman. “I turned into a totally different person. Once I was on the field I knew that was what I could do best.”

Beckham’s edgy photo spread comes on the heels of news he has unveiled a Peaky Blinders-inspired fashion line through Kent & Curwen, the London brand he partially owns.The collection, which debuted on Sunday (06Jan19), pays homage to the hit BBC series, about 1920s gangsters in Birmingham, and was designed by the brand’s creative director, Daniel Kearns.

The pieces were displayed as part of London Men’s Fashion Week, which Beckham documented via a series of photos on his Instagram page, noting his wife Victoria Beckham and son Brooklyn were in attendance.

“Another incredible @kentandcurwen presentation for #LFWM #AW19,” he wrote. “Thank you @daniel.kearns and @peakyblindersofficial, the collection looks great. Proud to have my family by my side to watch this morning. @victoriabeckham @brooklynbeckham.”

Victoria Beckham will become the first recipient of the Fashion Icon prize at the upcoming E! People’s Choice Awards.

The British designer recently marked the 10th anniversary of her eponymous fashion label, and she now has further reason to celebrate, as E! executives have decided to honour her as the first winner in the new category.

“I feel so honoured to be receiving the first-ever fashion Icon Award at the E! People’s Choice Awards. This year I am celebrating 10 years of my brand, and this is a wonderful way to mark that decade,” she said in a statement. “I am so grateful to be the inaugural recipient. I love what I do, and love that I have been given the opportunity to empower women through my collections. November 11 will be a very special moment for me.”

The organisers insisted that the 44-year-old is a “true inspiration and voice” for women, and an undoubtedly worthy winner.

“Victoria Beckham is a powerful businesswoman, fashion designer and true inspiration and voice for modern-day women,” praised Jen Neal, executive producer of live events and executive vice president of marketing for the E! network. “Celebrating its 10th anniversary, her brand is culturally influential across the globe and we couldn’t think of anyone better suited to receive the inaugural E! People’s Choice Awards’ Fashion Icon Award.”

Beckham celebrated a decade in business by swapping New York for a place on the London Fashion Week schedule for the first time, and recently graced the cover of Vogue Australia, as well as British Vogue alongside husband David Beckham and their four children, Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and seven-year-old Harper.

The E! People’s Choice Awards will take place on 11 November (18) at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

Victoria Beckham’s daughter finds her Spice World looks ‘hilarious’

Victoria Beckham’s seven-year-old daughter Harper can’t help but laugh at the outfits worn by the star in the film Spice World.

Beckham appeared in the 1997 comedy at the height of the Spice Girls’ fame, and her wardrobe in the girl group’s production has proven to be a source of humour for her little girl, who has enjoyed watching it on repeat.

In an interview with Vogue Australia, the 44 year old reveals the camouflage mini-dress she wore during a bootcamp scene has caught Harper’s attention, but her memory of filming the segment is a little painful as she was forced to confront her body image issues for the shoot.

“When I filmed that, they made me wear a little army dress instead of the combat pants everyone else was wearing and I was really upset at the time, because my weight throughout the Spice Girls went up-down-up-down and I really didn’t want to wear a tight little camouflage dress,” Beckham recalled.

However, the singer-turned-fashion designer has since put the difficult time behind her with the help of her daughter.

“Now Harper looks at it and she finds it really hilarious,” she continued. “‘Mummy, why are you wearing that mini-dress?’ You have a whole other appreciation for that movie when you watch it years later.”

Harper, who has Spice World on “heavy rotation” on her iPad, has also taking a liking to a scene in which her mum’s alter ego Posh Spice cannot decide between the “little Gucci dress, the little Gucci dress, or the little Gucci dress”.

Beckham tells the publication, “She does the dance and she says: ‘Is it a Gucci dress? Is it a Gucci dress? I want a little Gucci dress.’ And then she asks me: ‘Mummy, what’s a Gucci dress?'”

In the decades since Spice World’s release, Beckham, who has four children with husband David Beckham, has emerged as a major force in the fashion industry. Last month (Sep18), she celebrated the 10th anniversary of her eponymous clothing label.

English designer Victoria Beckham declared “it’s great to be back” as she made her debut at London Fashion Week on Sunday (16Sep18).

Beckham usually shows off her namesake label during the New York Fashion Week round of runways, but to mark the brand’s 10th anniversary, the former popstar decided on a homecoming show.

With her family, including husband David, and children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper, sitting front row, Beckham wowed the fashion crowd with her spring/ summer 19 collection, which was packed full of delicate lace negligees, flowing florals and tailored trousers featuring a front split to show off shoes.

“It’s great to be back,” she stated post-show, reports Fashionista. “I’ve had family members here that have never been to a show of mine. They’ve never seen what I’ve done, so it’s great to feel part of London Fashion Week.”

Her mum and dad, Jackie and Tony, and her sister Louise were also at the London showcase, as was David’s mum Sandra and his sister Joanne. British Vogue editor Edward Enninful and close family friend Tana Ramsay also watched as models, including Liya Kebede, Edie Campbell and catwalk veteran Stella Tennant, stormed the runway.

“I feel proud of me and my team,” Beckham gushed backstage.”This feels like a new chapter. I’ve got new investors, I’ve got a new CEO (Paolo Riva) working — he started two weeks ago — there’s so much more now that I can do.”

And talking about the new clothes, which also include trench coats, wide-legged trousers and a gold brocade suit, Beckham explained that it was her aim to celebrate all women.

“It’s all about celebrating women, not just the Victoria Beckham woman – we haven’t always done so in the past,” she commented.

Victoria carried on the celebration with a star-studded Vogue party later on Sunday.
