Dolph Lundgren is the latest star to front a CDLP campaign. The legendary Swedish actor, director, producer and martial artist is the new face of CDLP Mobilité, a capsule collection of luxury sportswear essentials from the Stockholm-based brand. Launched to stardom in the '80s after his breakthrough role as Soviet boxer Ivan Drago opposite Sylvestor Stallone in Rocky IV, Lundgren came to epitomise the ultimate alpha male. Today, he focuses on strengthening his mind as much as his body, making him a natural fit for CDLP. In an interview with CDLP's co-founder Christian Larson, Lundgren said "If you walk into a gym, 80% of the people lift with their ego… It's much better to lift from your mind… Lately that's what's happened to me... I don't have to overdo anything or to outdo anybody."
Just as Lundgren now represents a new ideal of modern masculinity, the Mobilité range re-interprets classic sportswear, subverting our expectations of what 'gym gear' should look and feel like. An outer layer is designed for pre- and post-workout and features robust, heavyweight fabrics and relaxed fits, while a technical base layer for physical performance boasts enhanced flexibility, mesh ventilation, non-chafing seams, no-tag constructions and superior moisture wicking and quick-drying properties. In typical CDLP fashion, the line makes use of organic, regenerated and recycled materials.
