Vegan footballer Héctor Bellerín is partnering with fashion giant H&M to launch a sustainable clothing collection. 

The new spring line features items such as a parka, anorak, blazer, wide-leg trousers, and a denim jacket. Edition By Héctor Bellerín also features a ‘fluid navy overshirt’ and joggers.

The collection is ‘made exclusively’ with materials such as recycled nylon and polyesters. It also uses organic cotton or recycled cotton leftover from textile production.

Moreover, the capsule features man-made fabrics such as Ecovero viscose and Tencel lyocell. These are created from sustainably sourced cellulose fibers.

Héctor Bellerín’s sustainability commitment 

“Making this collection as sustainable as possible was important because to me there can be no other way,” explains Bellerín

“We shouldn’t put our creative freedom or greed first when there are many other ways — even though they might be more difficult or expensive to achieve — that enable us to create the same product. 

“This collection proves that you can make beautiful and meaningful pieces from recycled yarns and materials that have been worn before.”

‘An expert eye for style’

Ross Lydon is head of menswear design at H&M. He added: “Héctor has an expert eye for style, in tune with how men are dressing right now. 

 “It’s a look that’s both sharp and effortless, combining streetwear with utilitarianism, and always with a sense of ease and positivity.”

Bellerín describes the range as ‘very relaxed’ and ‘genderless’ – stating that ‘comfort is another key element’ to his style. 

Edition By Héctor Bellerín will be available at hm.com and in selected stores on February 18
