It’s no secret that I have an undying love affair with anything and everything created by Alexander Wang. I swear by his white tanks and live in his wrap skirts. I would sleep in it if it wasn’t so expensive.
When I got word that Wang was collaborating with Beats by Dre, I may have freaked out a little bit. Okay okay…maybe more than that. The limited edition collaboration features speakers and headphones in black matte, with gold accents. WWD was the first to report about the collab, and Wang himself gave a quote, stating: “The limited-edition collection for Beats by Dr. Dre includes my favorite headphones and portable speaker,” said Wang. “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.”
Makes perfect sense to me! Wang has recently been seen hanging out with Kanye West, so he’s no stranger to the sound of music. GQ reported that The Beats Studio headphones will cost $449, the Urbeats earbuds will cost $149, and the Beats Pill speaker will cost $299.
Will you cop or drop?
