貝克漢 ‘我喜歡成功女性的這個想法’ / David Beckham ' I like the idea of a successful woman '


‘’ 我喜歡 『成功的女性』這個想法 ‘’ - 貝克漢 (費加洛日報・法國)

貝克漢;這位傳奇足球員現在成為了一位企業家、四個孩子的榜樣以及與老婆維多莉亞成為世人稱羨的佳偶;現在,他為了捍衛人道主義在這個世界上奔走。

足球是一個承載夢想的機器、迷人而且偉大的機器。在足球場外,有些球員會繼續成為鎂光燈的焦點,貝克漢當然也是其中之一,只不過貝克漢成為了一個時代的象徵;或許因為他曾經是球隊的隊長、一位足球神童,但他那寬厚以及純粹堅韌的心,或許才是他成為時代現象的主要原因。

貝克漢的人生由球場內的足球以及球場外的伴侶所建造而成;球場內他有著睿智的技巧和對於比賽敏銳的直覺,球場外他有老婆 維多莉亞 的加持(獲獎不斷的時裝設計師以及流行偶像)使得他們成為最有影響力的夫妻。

至今,貝克漢在足球場上的表現得獎不斷,他從曼徹斯特聯隊的七號、皇家馬德里、洛杉磯銀河隊以及巴黎聖日耳曼球隊,總共得過四個不同國家足球聯賽的冠軍。

‘’ 我知道我是個幸運的人,我成長過程中從來沒想過 『我要很有名或者我要賺很多錢』我唯一思考過的事情是 『我要成為一個專業的足球員』'' 貝克漢的夢想將他帶到人生的巔峰以及成為世界知名的明星,更有超過一億的人在社群媒體上追蹤他生活中的大小事情。

貝克漢最珍藏的東西? 自由

現年四十一歲的貝克漢,在二零一三年退休之後便不斷被世界上的媒體選為 ‘’全世界最性感的男人‘’ 並且是 英倫紳士的代表人物。運動員的體態、堅韌的眼神,貝克漢彷彿是他的兩位偶像 Bryan Robson 以及 Steve McQueen 的合成版本。

'’在球場外,我跟許多知名演員一樣(他笑著說)擁有輕鬆和自然的風格''

話說回來,這位在 Leytonstone 長大的男孩 (倫敦知名的郊區)後來成為了時尚的代表人物;以他英倫雅痞的形象。

貝克漢建立了當然不只他的名聲、品牌、一個美好的未來。他也是一個成功的商人,他嚴格把關他的形象代言並且不讓時尚限制住他人生,對他來說,時尚帶給他的是自由並且讓他有空間去支持他想要支持的品牌和喜歡的工作。

“傳奇人物” 模特兒

貝克漢與 Adidas 已經合作了十九年、H&M 合作了五年,而二零一五年開始他在倫敦時裝週揭開了他與英國經典品牌 Kent & Curwen 的合作;他現在更是碧兒泉的品牌形象代言人,貝克漢提到

「這是一個牢不可破的合作關係,因為我們的合作是非常具有意義並且品牌本身也是非常卓越,我非常注重自己不要過度的曝光,因為人們喜新厭舊的程度非常快速,對我而言,重要的關鍵在於你帶給別人什麼樣的感覺以及你如何呈現自己的形象。」

貝克漢的第二人生起緣於他曾擔任英格蘭足球隊隊長開始,他現在想要在邁阿密成立一個足球隊;而他在因為工作在世界旅行對他造成的影響則是他開始關心人道主義的議題

「因為我想再取之後社會後還於社會」貝克漢解釋著原因;

在早期他的足球事業開始時,他總是對於社福機構 UNICEF 提供許多幫助,二零零五年更成為該機構的代言人,這樣子的機會也讓貝克漢覺得是一個 『莫大的榮耀』,他說,當他退休的時候,他將他的基金會 7:The David Beckham UNICEF 擺在人生的第一優先位置,這個基金會致力於主動為許多孩童提供幫助:而這也是貝克漢結束足球生涯後的熱情所在。

‘’傳奇人物’‘ 是他的支持者給貝克漢的暱稱,不管在足球場上、時尚界裡都是不可忽略的對他的名稱。「許多知名的藝術家以及運動員必須自覺,他們現在的所作所為都會讓許多年輕人視為標竿並且會加以模仿;我會這樣說是因為來自於我的孩子們,小賈斯丁對他們來說就是一個巨大的模範,他們模仿小賈斯丁的服裝,言語表達以及行為模式。因此我們有責任對自己的行為負責,更可以說對讓自己成為一個模範,他年輕的一代能有自信地表達自己。」

維多莉亞・貝克漢 總是稱作我是他的 ’‘夥伴’‘

貝克漢的力量來自於哪呢?從他身上的刺青便可得知一二;家人。

他的父母 Ted 以及 Sandra 給他了對於家庭的觀念。他與他的老婆,無庸置疑地崇拜的對方、啟發著對方,貝克漢說 「我永遠支持我的老婆做任何他想做的事情,許多男人覺得『成功的女人』是不適當的,但是對我來說,我喜歡這樣的想法也崇拜這樣的想法,因為這些女人真的令人感到敬佩。」

父親的酷

貝克漢夫妻對於家庭有自己一套取得平衡的模式,尤其是免於媒體干擾下的模式,在他們倫敦的家中,只有他們夫妻與他們的四個孩子;貝克漢說 「我們的行程都是把家庭擺在第一優先,孩子們就是我們的首要順位,我現在每天還是會帶著他們上學而且我有一點黏著家中的男孩。」因為一個安詳的家庭是人生最重要的事情並且你要認真的去建造。

“I like the idea of a successful woman”

The ex football-god turned business-man, hero of an iconic couple along with Victoria, model parent of his 4 kids...David Beckham now travels around the world to defend humanitarian causes.

Football is a dream machine, fascinating and mighty. Outside the stadiums, few players keep attracting the light to themselves. Beckham is one of them - a phenomenon - because he is a champion in essence, a football prodigee. Perhaps because he simply has a big heart. Pure. Hard.

Beckham’s destiny was forged on the fields with genius and game intuition. But also outside the stadiums where he methodically built with his wife, Victoria (award-winning fashion designer and style icon), one of the most emblematic power couple of our time.

To this day, the most famous Manchester United’s number 7, multi-awarded during his career, who played for the greatest teams in the world - including real madrid, Los angeles galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain - remains the only english that has won a title in 4 different national championships.

‘I know i’m a lucky man. I didn’t grow up thinking : I wanna be famous or I wanna make a lot of money. I grew up thinking : I wanna be a professional football player”. His dream brought him to the top, and he is now a world star, followed by more than 100 million people on social networks.

David Beckham’s luxury? freedom.

At only 41 years of age, the young retired(since 2013), regularly elected sexiest man in the world by foreign press, represents perfectly the “English gentleman”. Athletic figure, intense gaze, typical “British” humour, Beckham is the perfect synthesis of his 2 idols: Bryan Robson, former captain of Manchester United (and now global ambassador of the club), and Steve McQueen. “Outside the field, I identified a lot with the famous actor’s, his bright smile, his effortless style, his natural ease.”

In turn, the kid from Leytonstone, a popular suburb of London, became a fashion icon. His “urban dandy” look pleases. Beckham managed to build a name, a brand, a future. Good business man, uses his image in a selective and rigorous way. Fashion world can’t resist him, which gives him the freedom to work with the magazines and brands he wants to support.

“The legend”, a model.

He’s been collaborating with Adidas for 19 years, H&M for 5 years. He has a partnership with Kent & Curwen since 2015, iconic English brand, who unveiled its new collection during the London fashion week. He’s also now ambassador for Biotherm Homme. “Those are durable partnerships, meaningful projects, brands with substance. I’m careful not to be overexposed. People get tired very quickly of seeing your face on every billboard. Key is longevity. What matters is not the way you look, it’s how you feel and how you express it”.

His second life, Beckham starts it with its England team’s ex-captain spirit. Has multiple projects, wants to create a football team in Miami. Above all, he travels the world to place his renown at the service of humanitarian causes. “It is a way to give back to society a bit of what I have received”, he explains. From the start of his career, Beckham always responded the solicitations of UNICEF, as far as becoming the ambassador of the organisation in 2005 upon Kofi Annan’s request. “An immense honour”, he remembers. Since he retired, he made it a priority. “Our own foundation, 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund, launched several initiatives in favour of children. And that is my number 1 passion.”

“The Legend”, the nickname given to him by his fans, doesn’t ignore he became a model for many generations.”All the famous artists and athletes must be conscious that they have a role to play with young people following them. I realize that with my own children. Thus, Justin Bieber is such a model for them. They observe everything he does: the way he expresses himself, the way he dresses, the way he behaves. We have a huge responsibility relative to young people. We have to set an example. Give them confidence in themselves.”

Victoria Beckham says he’s her “partner”

His strength? Just check his numerous tattoos, his family is essential to him. His parents, Ted and Sandra, kitchen installer and hairdresser, gave him the taste for effort and family. His wife, off course. They admire each other. Inspire each other. “I support my wife in everything she does. Some men are afraid by the idea of a successful woman. I like it and admire it. These women are really impressive.”

Daddy cool

Couple found balance in a family life away from the medias, in their Londonian house and 4 kids.”We manage our schedule according family. Children are our first priority. I still take them to school almost every morning. I’m a bit more strict with the boys.” Peaceful family life is a legend that you build serenely.
