England rugby star Maro Itoje has been announced as the face of the M&S Collection and Autograph menswear ranges for AW21.

He wears sizes from M&S’s “Big & Tall” offer, suitably designed for larger frames and all the “Big & Tall” products are available online for next day collection from over 700 M&S stores .

Customers can also access styling advice via video call seven days a week from M&S menswear experts.

Director of M&S Menswear Wes Taylor said:“Maro’s undeniable style and passion for clothing is evident, and with his shared values that we hold as a brand, he was an obvious choice to represent M&S– we are delighted that he has come on board to highlight our stylish new collections for autumn.”

Itoje added: “I’m delighted to be teaming up with M&S, a brand that I have grown-up with and loved wearing over the years, and that shares the same important values that I do. Style is a passion of mine, so to be asked to work with M&S to wear the new collections was an honour. There are so many great, stylish pieces from the new season that I can’t wait to wear again!”

Itoje is also a patron for the Black Curriculum, an organisation which aims to teach Black British history in schools and support teachers through training.

For Black History Month this October, M&S has selected Black Curriculum as its Sparks charity, which will see the retailer donate 2p every time a customer shops, double the usual 1p donation on every purchase.
