London, May 22 : Former football player David Beckham says Sean Connery, who plays James Bond in "Dr. No", influenced his new swimwear range for Swedish clothing manufacturer Hennes and Mauritz AB (H and M).
Beckham has launched his first collection of swimming trunks for the high street brand, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Sean Connery in 'Dr. No' was definitely on the reference board when we started. Old Bond movies were a big reference," he said.
"The bodywear range has been great since the launch in 2012, so when the swimwear idea came up, we were all over it. The board shorts are something I think will go down well - everyone likes a comfortable pair of shorts. Not everybody likes the tight ones," he added.
Beckham has made sure board shorts are a big part of the collection.
