Beckham’s brand will launch men’s bodywear line, a men’s fragrance in collaboration with license partner Coty Inc. among other ventures. Beckham added, “It’s not my natural inclination to see myself as a brand, I’m just a person who has been fortunate to explore other interests and passions outside of the game I love. I will always be associated with my sport but I am now working across other areas that will continue long after my career has finished.”
