Another day, another moment to feel the heartache of winter as we witness others free, warm, and absorbing all summer has to give in the northern hemisphere. Anthony Vaccarello is clearly feeling the same, with the release of Saint Laurent's latest Rive Droite collection, which is basically just the summer tease of the year.

Entitled The Heat, the release follows a Basquiat-themed collection that the brand tapped in July, and celebrates balmy days under the sun with fashion and lifestyle good available. Oh, to be oiled up and on a beach in the Riviera right now.
There is a lot to behold of the new collection, with standouts including a fun pink plastic visor for those who want to pretend they are holidaying in Florida, a blow up neon palm tree cup holder with a matching blow up palm tree float, skimboards, surfboards, and all the beach essentials one could ever want, like towels and raffia bags, tiny bikinis and travel mugs. For the home, Saint Laurent has introduced a ceramics collection in collaboration with ceramicist Mathilde Martin - who is known for her earthy, imperfect, hand built vases, which are offered in cobalt blue, mustard yellow and flamingo pink. Alongside Martin's pieces, are plates and vases by Emaux De Longwy sporting mosaic and panther motifs.
In the campaign, lensed by the modern photographic king of capturing summer, Henrik Purienne, homewares are captured on rocky shores, hit by the glare of the mediterranean sun to reveal details. Models are captured lounging naked on blow up floats, spraying each other with a hose in the sun, and sitting in the water.
