    David Beckham has plenty of experience wearing casual sports clothing, and now he has designed some.

    Beckham recently teamed up with James Bond, not the fictional secret agent, but the owner of Undefeated — a designer chain of sneaker boutiques — on a new collection for Adidas Originals.

    According to a release from Adidas, Beckham and Bond "were inspired by the mix of classic American sportswear and fabrics with fashionable silhouettes and details."

    The collection will be made out of materials including cashmere and silk.

    Some of the items in the pair's range include a leather puffer jacket and a long sleeve thermal shirt. They have also designed shoes and accessories for men.

    Beckham, however, is not expected to promote the brand through personal appearances, like he did when he signed on to be the body for Emporio Armani underwear, Women's Wear Daily reported.

    The soccer hunk reportedly became involved in the design fold for the Adidas Originals line after someone at Adidas, who already endorses the star athlete, suggested he collaborate with Bond as Beckham is a regular in Undefeated's Los Angeles branch, according to WWD.
