In an effort to keep preserve his personal brand and his ridiculous liquidity David Beckham announced today that hell be launching a standalone brand. The soccer star will release mens fragrance and bodywear under the David Beckham label starting later this year.

Ive crumpled up into an unrecognisable sweaty heap in Singapore. The hot and humid air has crashed down on me, forcing me to go into baby mode, which consists of nothing but sleeping and eating and thus has reduced blogging frequency here (I have a fair bit Singapore-related to go up…!). However, its got to be said… Singapore is for me, intrinsically tied with food and if a decent portion of time WASNT spent eating, Id be shaming my family and my reputation for being able to pack five meals a day.
