Downtown darlings, your latest must-have accessory has just arrived.
Say hello to Alexander Wang’s just-announced collaboration with Beats by Dr. Dre, featuring a limited-edition line of custom Beats headphones ($449), "Pill" speakers ($299) and earbuds ($149). All three goods feature Wang’s signature matte black lacquer and pale gold hardware, along with their own embossed stingray carrying cases.
Fashion and music have forever been a match made in heaven, which is why we’re somewhat surprised that such a union hadn’t happened sooner for Wang. In fact, the designer told WWD that he’s used Beats by Dr. Dre for quite some time, especially when jetsetting (something he does all the time, of course). "I have always looked to music and musicians for inspiration and as collaborators because there is such a purity to their talent," said Wang. "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."
