Ten Loves: Saint Laurent Rive Droite 007 Drop

We can’t lie, we do love a hunk in a suit. And no one comes close to James Bond. Seemingly between fighting Russian assassins and saving the world, 007 is always suited and booted head-to-toe in tailored perfection. But in these humid conditions, sporting a shirt and tie alone is basically like signing a sweat warrant, never mind a two-piece suit. You need something cool, calm and as airy as possible if you’re to brave the Central Line in this sweltering August heat. Thankfully, Anthony Vaccarello is on hand with a gem perfect no matter rain or shine.

For the seventh collection dropping at the brand’s concept stores Rive Droite in Paris and LA, the Saint Laurent logo has gotten a spaghetti western make-over, stamped over an easy-breezy, lightweight t-shirt in a sandy hue. Easily take it from a summer staple to a winter favourite in your wardrobe by layering it under a leather jacket, and trust us, you’ll feel just like you’re brushing shoulders with Kate Moss in the Saint Laurent gang. The fun doesn’t stop there, as a range of tchotchkes are available to kit your life out just a little bit more. There are coasters, cocktail sticks, notepads and of course, a pack of matches all plastered in the new rendition of the logo – the latter practically made for smoking area flaunting.

The Saint Laurent Rive Droite 007 collection is available exclusively at the Rive Droite stores in Paris and LA.
