International soccer great and underwear model David Beckham is planning to start his own product line. WWD reports that Beckham and his business partner Simon Fuller have signed a deal with Global Brands, which distributes Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, among others. Everyone involved is a little vague on the details, but they indicate it will include more than clothing.

Madonna is the face of Versace's spring-summer 2015 campaign, the company announced in a news release Thursday. In it, Donatalla Versace calls Madonna "one of the true icons of Versace." This is Madonna's fourth campaign for the fashion house, for which she first struck a pose in 1995.

Alexander Wang has designed a denim collection. Which is being promoted by -- and perhaps obscured by --  some pretty racy ads, featuring a model slumping in a leather chair, with the jeans -- her only attire -- pulled down to her calves. Another shot shows her hands down her pants, WWD reports. Meant to provoke, the ads "read more like yet another cheap attempt at using the female body to sell a product than anything else," writes Jamie Feldman at the Huffington Post, concluding, "Your clothing is cool enough on the models, Wang, you don't need to take it off of them to make money."

Speaking of denim, British fashion designer Simone Rocha has designed a festive, holiday-ready capsule collection for J Brand, Los Angeles Times fashion critic Booth Moore reports.
