Most people say footballers are devoid of all other talents, particularly when it comes to fashion sense. From all cream outfits, to Mario Balotelli’s hand shaped hat; usually the people are correct. However, one footballer bucking that trend is Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin.
Having burst onto the scene and making his debut for Arsenal at the age of 18, Hector has been a key member of Arsenal’s defence since that moment and has also been capped for the Spanish national team.
Football isn’t the only thing that Hector is passionate about. A dedicated vegan, Hector has been a vocal supporter of environmental awareness and sustainability. He uses his platforms to spread positive messages and calls for action. But that platform is also used to showcase his other interests, one being fashion.
From walking the runway at Paris Fashion Week for Louis Vuitton, to recently styling Arsenal Football Club Men’s and Women’s looks for their collaboration with LA-based brand 424; Hector certainly has the right credentials to be called one of the most fashionable footballers around today.
Below are some of his best looks and how you can copy his style:
Football is Fashion
Good news - Football shirts no longer have to only be worn in the pub or indoors! This custom piece was produced by Fokohaela and features the WWF logo on the front, highlighting Hector’s passionate belief about protecting the world; whilst the leopard print number on the back symbolises his speed on the football pitch.
To take football back to the streets, check out the three-way collaboration between Juventus Football Club, Adidas and streetwear brand Palace.
For those who wish they hadn’t thrown their vintage 1980’s football shirt in the charity shop bag all those years ago, check out classsicfootballshirts.co.uk. They stock hundreds of authentic football shirts from domestic and international teams. That elusive kit you thought you’d never see again just became available!
The corona-virus pandemic has cancelled or put a halt on a lot of peoples summer holiday plans. However, there could still be a chance for autumn holidays or a bit of winter sun at the end of the year.
For me, holiday mode means a time to unwind and do something different to your regular schedule. For some that means relaxing by the pool sipping Piña Coladas, others it’s walking around the cobbled streets on a historic town.
When it comes to the shirt, the more vibrant the better. You wear plain shirts at home, so why do the same again on holiday? We recommend this shirt by Officine Générale, styled alongside these Orlebar Brown swim shorts and Malibu sandals for an easy transition between the street and the pool.
Ignore anything else you’ve heard,all black is a look that can be pulled off. No longer is it the colour of choice for formal events only, all black can work whatever the occasion.
Hector is wearing a rollneck from John Smedley teamed with a Givenchy wool jacket. For a less formal approach, try this cashmere half-zip from J Crew with this Prada wool coat. Wear with a pair of black jeans and these JW Anderson sneakers for the perfect all black look.
