Saint Laurent's Rive Droite is known for its collaborations and occasionally outrageous items. We've seen surfboards, logo-branded Rubik's cubes, skiing gear, condoms, and plenty more, but its latest addition is one that we didn't have on our list.
It is every child's dream to own a toy car. I remember mine: it was made in red plastic, with a white steering wheel, and it most definitely ruined the wooden floors in my family home, but it was perfect.
Saint Laurent's iteration, however, is certainly no cheap plastic piece from the toy store – this one is a work of art. Made in collaboration with Baghera, the car is made in metal and arrives in a bubblegum pink hue, contrasted by a zebra-printed saddle and steering wheel.
With a price tag of $1,300 USD, we can't see the average kid riding around on one of these, but before we know it, Cardi B's daughter Kulture will have one, or perhaps even Kylie Jenner's newborn son, formerly known as Wolf. Both kids already have custom Chrome Hearts strollers, so a Saint Laurent car seems like the obvious next step.
Although the piece is absolutely ludicrous, it is a fun addition to Saint Laurent's Rive Droite objects that is guaranteed to get people talking – which is exactly the point.
Over the past few years, we've become obsessed with anything designer. We've seen water bottles, frisbees, picnic equipment, table tennis sets, golf clubs – you name it – receive the luxury treatment, and despite so many of us simply asking "why," the pieces sell out in the blink of an eye.
If you're looking to gift your kid the $1,300 USD Saint Laurent Baghera Rider, it is currently available to order online as well as in-store at the Rive Droite locations in Paris and Los Angeles. Perhaps I'll get one for myself – it is a lot cheaper than a regular car.
