Discussing the collection, David shares, “I wanted to design a range of items that were predominantly stylish but also practical and could be packed and worn from the beach to the bar, from the morning until the evening.” The 36 year-old model continues, “The collection comes in a very classical color palette of white, navy and burgundy. The items can be worn individually or together in different combinations, creating a variety of looks that satisfy the demands of holiday.”

Talking about the range in detail, David explains, “Luxurious and innovative fabrics such as the toweling polo shirt, cotton linen t-shirt and pure cotton trousers make the styles versatile and comfortable for wearing all day.” Addressing David’s ongoing relationship with Marks & Spencer, director of menswear Scott Fyfe says, “One year on from the success of the David Gandy for Autograph swimwear launch, we are excited to extend the range to include a capsule beachwear collection based on beach holiday packing essentials.”
