Alexander Wang makes beats with Dr. Dre — well, kinda
Alexander Wang’s love of hip-hop is no secret. Over the years the designer has had Foxy Brown, Nicki Minaj and Odd Future perform at his raging fashion show after-parties. But know he’s making his own beats — well, kinda.
WWD reports that Wang has teamed up with Beats by Dr. Dre to create a limited-edition collection of gadgets.
“The limited-edition collection for Beats by Dre includes my favorite headphones and portable speaker,” says Wang in the article. “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.”
That meant headphones and speakers got a Wang-esque makeover in sleek matte black with gold accents — as did the price tag. According to the article the items will retail for $449 (headphones), $149 (earbuds) and $299 (speakers). But the good news for you fashion and music junkies is the products will be available during a Dec. 15 presale promotion at BeatsByDre.com. Just in time for those Christmas wish lists.
