Hi, everyone!

Ramble of the Day

Arsenal’s Héctor Bellerín has become a noted fashion enthusiast in the football world, so when I found out he collaborated with H&M for a collection, I was pretty curious to see his vision in designing clothes. Edition by Héctor Bellerín launched last week, and features clothing he and the brand describe as relaxed and genderless, and is designed with sustainable fabrics. The aesthetics live up to the billing.

The thing about the collection is that it’s extremely appealing — neutral enough that a lot of people might find something they like. Bellerín himself loves to work some wide-ranging fashion, but this is obviously a more commercial venture. Still, it doesn’t feel so foreign to the styles the target audience sports nowadays; in its own right, it also doesn’t feel far from Bellerín’s tastes.

For me, the collection’s jackets are a strong point, as are the tote bags. (Full disclosure: I do really like jackets and tote bags, so it’s not surprising that I’d take a liking to Bellerín’s jackets and tote bag.) It’s also fairly affordable, which isn’t surprising considering the manufacturer. I know this is hardly the space to give compliments to an Arsenal player, but what can I say? It’s a good collection.

tl;dr: Héctor Bellerín did a sustainable collection with H&M, and it’s pretty good.
