David Gandy is set to collaborate with a luxury British luggage company next year.
The 36-year-old model - who embarked on a modelling career in 2001 - has teased he has signed a deal with a mystery brand and is working on a new venture with the company, which he has admitted will be unveiled in 2017.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about his forthcoming project, the dark-haired hunk said: "I wish i could tell you about something I've just signed but I can't.
"It's a luxury British luggage company.
"We'll probably be announcing early next year but the actual collaboration the actual line will be out late next year around September."
And David, who models and designs for Marks and Spencer, has admitted despite being involved in the creative process he finds it "tricky" coming up with new innovative ideas for future collections.
He said: "Well these things take a long time to design and produce so for Marks and Spencer I've designed the Winter 2017 range, that's how far ahead of the seasons it is. [And] when you're releasing the 2016 products you have to be already designing the 2017 products, which can be tricky because you don't quite know some things.
"We're constantly chasing ahead of that year but the bags and luggage are completely different.
"People have asked me that and I say it's all about design [and] having an eye for design, it's easier when you have fashion designers around like Dolce and Gabbana they don't just have clothes they have interiors, luggage watches. So it's like Ralph Lauren it takes a lot of inspiration for watches and bags.
"I've renovated cars and houses and if you have that eye for design and you have the experts at those companies to put those designs into reality [it helps]."
