American designer Alexander Wang has teamed up with Dr. Dre for a limited edition Beats By Dre collection. According to “E! News” on Dec. 3, Wang opened up to Women’s Wear Daily about the collaboration.
"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."
Wang’s Beats By Dre collection features products in his signature matte black and pale gold finishes. The headphones are priced at $449, earbuds are $149 and the pill speaker is $299.
But this is not Wang’s first hip-hop collaboration. The go-to designer gifted a custom leather dress to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for their daughter, North West. And, according to E!, Wang designed a leather backpack for Jay Z’s holiday collection with Barneys.
