Saint Laurent Rive Droite’s “The Winter Game” Capsule Presents Skis, Snowboards and Sleds

Anthony Vaccarello‘s Saint Laurent Rive Droite is back to bring a new understanding of luxury to your life, introducing its sports-inspired “The Winter Game” capsule collection.

In “The Winter Game,” Saint Laurent Rive Droite delivers in-house-made products and various collaborative sporting goods, many of which are served in the house’s signature color of black. Stars of the show include a set of skis and a snowboard that are developed with ZAI, costing $11,605 USD and $9,500 USD respectively, as well as a black sled created with Sirch that costs $4,500 USD.

For something a little more affordable, Saint Laurent Rive Droite has teamed up with Spalding to create a black snakeskin-effect basketball retailing for $475 USD, and offers a New Era 9FORTY cap in black that’s embroidered with a playful take on the YSL logo on the front costing a more swallowable $250 USD.

All of these items are spotlighted in a campaign that features alongside Saint Laurent classics such as the SL24 mid-top sneaker, a pair of denim shorts, and a striped “Baby Alone” top, as well as silky and lacey numbers, that can all be found on the Saint Laurent Rive Droite website and at the brand’s Paris and LA outposts. Take a closer look at the pieces above.

SPOFEC Equips the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge With OVERDOSE Widebody Kit

NOVITEC sub-label SPOFEC got its hands on the Rolls-Royce Cullinan this time last year, updating the luxurious SUV with its exclusive OVERDOSE treatment. Now, SPOFEC has put its name to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge edition, which takes the already leveled-up SUV and gives it even more power and prowess.

Following the theme of its previous Cullinan update, the Black Badge version also sees a full OVERDOSE upgrade that gives the 4×4 a comprehensive widebody revision and Vossen-supplied 24″ rims. The widebody kit extends the front, sides, and rear closer to the floor, making it look lower and sportier as it sits closer to the larger-than-life rims. Now, the front bumper perfectly blends into the front fender flares and the wheel arches all while reducing front-axle lift at high speeds, and at the rear, SPOFEC’s sporty redesign sees the Cullinan gain a spoiler lip and a race-inspired diffuser.

All of this extra bulk is accentuated by the special control module for the air suspension unit that can lower the Cullinan Black Badge by 40mm, further adding to its sporty credentials. In addition to this, SPOFEC has given the 6.7-liter twin-turbo V12 engine a tweak so it now produces an extra 107 HP and 160 Nm of torque, equating to a total of 707 HP and a peak torque output of 1,060 Nm, which is good for 0-62 MPH in 4.6 seconds.

SPOFEC’s Cullinan Black Badge is still limited to the production top speed of 155 MPH because, no matter of what it now features, the 4×4 still weighs a colossal 2.7 metric tons, if not more in certain situations.

Take a look at the SPOFEC Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge in the gallery above, and find out more information on SPOFEC’s website.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, the fully-engraved gold Nissan GT-R by Kuhl Racing is now for sale.

Cold Laundry Showcases Its Penchant for Minimalist Comfort

London-based label Cold Laundry is swiftly becoming renowned for its minimalist and relaxed approach to ready-to-wear garments. Founded in 2019 in London by designers Ola and Cerise Alabi, the brand’s penchant for comfortable clothing is continued with its latest unisex campaign, entitled “Escape the Noise”.

Shades of blue, cream, grey and beige dominate a collection comprising cozy hoodies, sweatpants and sweaters, while long-sleeved tees, workwear and polos deliver a wider offering suitable for more formal occasions too.

The brand’s simplistic take on everyday wear is highlighted further with its array of outerwear, most notably its puffer jackets, which arrive in either brown or black hues. Blazers and suit sets take the formal stance to the next level, while footwear in the form of sneakers and heels completes a head-to-toe look.

View the full collection in the lookbook above, all of which is available to buy from the Cold Laundry webstore now.

10 Years of Deadstock Astrid Andersen Fabrics Construct Its Latest Capsule

Danish designer Astrid Andersen first presented her eponymous label’s collection at London Fashion Week for FW11, and while the fashion world may not be operating in its usual form at the moment, this has by no means put a halt to Andersen’s creativity. As an advocate for sustainability — her repurposed fabric-based collection with hummel being just one example — the designer has now presented a new capsule comprising deadstock materials that draw from the brand’s last ten years of collections.

The deadstock capsule was ideated during the COVID-19-induced lockdown last year, acting as a way for the brand to stay creative and productive while making sure its output was zero-waste. By only using in-house deadstock fabrics, the collection celebrates the brand’s ten years on the catwalk and further accentuates the importance of sustainability within the brand’s ethos.

Because it mixes various materials and styles together, the capsule is filled with pieces that look like collages of the past. Silk is contrasted with velour, neon viscose finds itself partnered with custom-printed silks that appear vintage in their design, and there are even touches of leopard print or collegiate inspirations found throughout the capsule.

The mismatched prints, patterns, and fabrics construct signature Astrid Andersen silhouettes as well as new T-shirt and short styles, but ultimately come together on a number of standout pieces. These include a sports polo top that combines a front panel of striped collegiate fabrics with a ring and flower-printed silk design, and arms that feature the leopard print and more of the collegiate stripes. Elsewhere, the label presents a hoodie with silk arms, a checkered patch on the righthand side, and varying green neoprene patches, as well as silk sportswear-leaning track pants printed with flowers and the label’s signature branding.

Astrid Andersen’s archive deadstock capsule collection can be seen in the lookbook above and purchased exclusively on the designer’s website now.
