Beats by Dr Dre
Alexander Wang has plenty of tricks up his stylish sleeve – from being Rihanna’s go-to designer and Balenciaga’s youngest creative director, to putting together an objects collection that goes beyond clothes to include inflatable pool toys and croc-embossed coasters. It’s hardly surprising, then, that the streetwise New York-based designer stepped in to lend his black-and-gold design signature to a pair of headphones and earphones for the celebrityfavoured Beats by Dr Dre electronics brand. The limited collection includes the Beats Studio Headphone, with precision sound, adaptive noise cancelling and a 20-hour rechargeable battery (Dh1,900), and stronger, lightweight Beats Urbeats Earbuds (Dh767; pictured). Both come embossed with Wang’s trademark glossy stingray case.
