INFASHIONITY has been selected with 2 other male fashion bloggers from Switzerland to collaborate on a cool project and contest with H&M Switzerland, upon the launch of the new Modern Essentials #selectedbydavidbeckham collection.
Have a glimpse at the collection, relive my experience spending a day at the H&M showroom and shooting street style in the streets of Zürich and help me WIN A CONTEST !
The interest in menswear is definitely increasing and it can be felt from many sides: brands, media, blogs.. are all focusing more and more on what men put on their back. And I certainly ain’t mad about it!
I was very excited to be asked by H&M Switzerland to participate in a special “Modern Essentials Day” at the brand’s swiss showroom in Zürich.
The concept: 3 male bloggers, discovering the new Modern Essentials collection, then creating outfits out of the collection and getting photographed by a street style photographer. Our pictures are now online in a facebook album.
Dear readers, this is the part where I NEED YOU !
The two bloggers and I are actually competing in a contest. If you want to help me win, visit the facebook album here and like pictures of me ! I could win a few gifts to share with you !
Let’s go back to the collection and the day I spent.
MODERN ESSENTIALS – #selectedbydavidbeckham
For spring summer 15, the swedish brand reveals a collection of key pieces for a man’s wardrobe. And these pieces have been especially selected by none other than the famously stylish british ex-football player, David Beckham. On top of being married to designer Victoria Beckham, he has always been known for his personal sense of styles. He already has a bodywear collection with H&M, and this time he has picked his favorite pieces to be part of the new menswear collection.

I got the chance to preview the collection when I visited the H&M showroom.
I was immediately drawn to a few key pieces. I saw two different inspirations in the collection. One was quite urban, with colorful t shirts, a linen bomber jacket or a denim jacket. The second inspiration was a little preppier, with pieces such as a navy blazer, a crisp white shirt and square-patterned trousers. Therefore, when it came to picking two outfits out of the collection, I quite naturally created one look for each inspiration.
Before going out to shoot in the streets of Zurich, I had some fun trying on a few outfits from other upcoming collections, and enjoyed visiting the showroom.
Blazer and T shirt: H&M Modern Essentials
We were lucky to have Andrea Monica Hug as our street style photographer for the day!
It was extremely cold, and a bit of a paradoxal situation as we were shooting spring summer outfits under a freezing winter weather ! But the whole H&M team came along and supported us, and it was all great fun, which made us forget about being cold.

After each blogger was done with our 2 outfits, we wrapped up the day with some group shots !
