Beats by Dre has teamed up with designer label Alexander Wang to create a special edition pair of Studio Headphones. According to a press release by Wang, we can also expect more elements within this collaborative effort:
“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.”
Of course, the pièce de résistance is the sleek black and gold headphones, which go for $449. But there are slightly cheaper ear buds ($149) and a Pill speaker ($299).
Apparently there is a deep-seated reason for his love affair with the hip-hop community. Wang explained to Women’s Wear Daily:
"I have always looked to music and musicians for inspiration and as collaborators because there is such a purity to their talent. Different types of music can also transform how you interpret or understand a fashion show, or film. It’s creating a story and translating a message."
