Alexander Wang x Beats by Dre Beats Studio Headphones
Soon audiophiles will be “spendin’ everything on Alexander Wang” too. As Wang has collaborated with Beats by Dre to create limited-edition Beats Studio headphones, Beats Pill portable speakers and Urbeats earbuds.
Wang’s new Beats by Dre collection highlights his signature pale gold accents and matte black finishes, says Women’s Wear Daily. This design will be featured on all three Beats x Wang products.
The ‘GQ’ Menswear Designer of the Year (2011) gave WWD the exclusive on the making of his new collection, and what motivated him to embark on such a partnership. “I have always looked to music and musicians for inspiration and as collaborators because there is such a purity to their talent,” says 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…For this collaboration with Beats by Dr. Dre, it felt right, and [was] a natural choice for me to give the Beats Studio headphones, Beats Pill and Urbeats earbuds a clean, minimal look with a luxe sensibility.”
If anyone is familiar with the New York designer, nothing ever comes cheap—you get what you pay for. The Studio headphones will retail at $449, the Pill speaker at $299 and the Urbeats earbuds at $149. All three products will be available in a pre-sale event on Dec. 15 at beatsbydre.com, will go on sale to the public the following day (Dec. 16) at beatsbydre.com and alexanderwang.com.
