1. Would you shell out $2,700 for this vintage Beemer?

“Over all this looks to be one amazingly clean example of the earliest 3, and one that might make a new owner a very happy polo wearing club-goer. That is, if its $2,700 price tag doesn’t disenchant.

2. Becks’ next move is a foray into the grooming industry

“The brand is inspired by British barber shops as well as Beckham’s own favourite products, starting out with 21 products across skincare, haircare, bodycare and grooming, ranging from the Bold Statement Tattoo Body Moisturizer to the Softer Touch Beard Oil. Quinoa and spirulina are at the heart of the formulas, chosen specifically by Beckham for their reputation as health-boosting ingredients.

House 99 will launch exclusively at Harvey Nichols in the UK on February 1 2018, rolling out to other British retailers and 19 countries worldwide from March 1.”

“The large budget for the project enabled Goldfinger to express himself in high-end and luxury finishes.”
