One of the world's most famous male models is flying into Dublin this Friday to launch his new High Street collection.
Stop what you’re doing: top model David Gandy is coming to Ireland.
The statuesque Brit has been invited by Marks & Spencers to unveil their new range of men’s underwear and sleepwear.
The 34-year-old will appear at their Grafton Street store this Friday afternoon.
The Essex native, who got his big break when a friend entered him in a Richard & Judy modelling competition, has been working with the department store for several years.
Following in the footsteps of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, he was enlisted by the company to collaborate on a capsule collection of boxers and briefs.
The range- David Gandy for Autograph- is comprised of 28 items that are inspired by his dapper and classic sense of style.
“I’ve always thought that you should never be aware that you are wearing underwear,” Gandy told British Vogue recently. “Secondly, I don’t like too heavy branding. And, thirdly, the quality is important so that it keeps its shape.”
The 6’3” brown-haired-blue-eyed man became a household name after he featured in Dolce and Gabbana’s Light Blue fragrance ad in 2007, (we feel the above 50 square foot billboard of him in his boxers in Times Square, New York, might have helped this.)
He has worked for Jaguar, Johnnie Walker, Sergio K, Lucky Brand Jeans, and is considered one of the most influential males in British Fashion.
Aside from his modelling ventures, he is also an active charity campaigner, routinely raising funds for Oxfam, Environment Justice Foundation, Sport Relief and Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day.
A chance to see David and pick up a bag of Percy Pigs on your way home? What better start to the weekend.
