Yves Saint Laurent have released couture condoms



After dropping a range of branded accessories comprised of balls, tennis rackets, yoga matts, brass dumbells and more, now you can have sex but make it fashion with the help of Yves Saint Laurent’s new line of chic couture condoms.

Announced by Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello via Instagram, the branded condoms will be available exclusively at Saint Laurent’s Parisian concept store, Rive Droite. The condoms will be packaged in six different designs ranging from a black-and-white checkered pattern to leopard prints and gold heart emblems. Each design is then stamped with Saint Laurent’s house logo.

On the heels of a star-studded Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 show, Yves Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello teased the new campaign on his Instagram. To accompany the release Saint Laurent launched the campaign ‘The Love Affair’, which was shot by famed photographer Juergen Teller. In the image shared by Vaccarello, Polish model Anja Rubik is seen alongside a ‘full frontal’ heavily-inked artist and supermodel David Alexander Flinn, but Instagram appears to have removed it. Truly heart-breaking.



Interested buyers will be able to purchase the Saint Laurent condoms for €2 EUR apiece (approximately $2.20 USD) exclusively at Rive Droite. The French letters are sold out of a condoms dispenser machine at the Maison’s branch at 213 Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris’ luxury shopping district.

American fashion designer Kenneth Cole announces the launch of Black Bold, the next evolution of the brand’s iconic, signature fragrance, Kenneth Cole Black. Inspired by the fearless spirit of New York, Black Bold is the perfect scent for the man who will take on any challenge, regardless of the odds and who is brave enough to believe that they can make an impact.

The new fragrance pushes boundaries with strength, power, and confidence. From the sleek, leather-like wrapped bottle design to the fragrance notes, Black Bold adds a dynamic new dimension to the Kenneth Cole fragrance collection. Intense. Determined. Unexpected.

For more than 30 years, the company has embraced the essence of New York – its boldness, its energy, and its diversity, I wanted Black Bold to do just that – to celebrate the confident individuals who are the protagonists in their own personal stories of resilience, optimism, and ambition.

Kenneth Cole collaborated with Master Perfumer Harry Fremont to craft a scent that embodies the feeling of a strong masculine exterior with a confident yet caring interior, reflecting the beauty of human strength.

Top notes: zesty mandarin, frozen ginger, chilled watermint, tonic
Heart: ancient cedarleaf, ground nutmeg, lotus flower, incense smoke
Base: black & blonde woods, suede, violet leaves, soft musks, ambergris

Black Bold features top notes of citrus and herbal tones, rounded out with a blend of ground nutmeg and a touch of lotus flower. Finished with elements of wood and leathery musks, the fragrance contrasts between dark and light and allows the boldness within to come to life.
