DR. Dre’s mega-popular headphones have been given a new fashion makeover by Alexander Wang.
New York City-based designer Wang has always enjoyed treading the line between luxury fashion and streetstyle aesthetics.
His latest collaboration is no different, seeing the designer, who also heads up the creative direction of Parisian luxury brand Balenciaga, work with headphone manufacturer Beats by Dr. Dre on a lavish new pair of cans.
Priced at US$449 (RM1,428) these are certainly pretty luxurious accessories. Alongside the main earphones ( pic), Wang has also rubbed his magic wand on the Beats Pill portable speaker (US$299/RM951) and a pair of earbuds (US$149/RM473). Pale gold and matte black is the order of the day. The limited edition collection for Beats by Dr. Dre include my favourite headphones and portable speaker, which I personally love to use,” said Wang.
“For this collaboration with Beats by Dr. Dre, it felt right and a natural choice for me to give the Beats Studio headphones, Beats Pill and Urbeats earbuds a clean, minimal look with a luxe sensibility.”
The products will hit the Beats and Alexander Wang online stores on December 16. — AFP Relaxnews
