Beats Balmain Special Edition Headphones
Apple has launched new special edition of Beats by Dr. Dre range in collaboration with French designer brand Balmain. With this collection, Apple aims to fuse technology, luxury, and fashion.
Kylie Jenner is the face of the new Beats campaign for the special edition Beats Studio Wireless and Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones.
The commercials for this special collection feature the reality star with the song “Ugly” by Jaira Burns playing in the background.
INTRODUCING #BALMAINBEATSTimed with the opening of the Balmain Flagship in Los Angeles, Beats by Dre and Balmain launch a new collaboration featuring two exclusive custom designs of Beats’ popular Powerbeats3 Wireless and Beats Studio Wireless headphones. "Anyone who’s been following the story so far knows that there are two basic truths about our unique DNA: Balmain celebrates the strength and beauty inherent in diversity and sees fashion as inseparable from music. Knowing that Beats is just as dedicated to these same core values made saying ‘yes' to our partnership a very easy decision,” said Olivier Rousteing. "Seeing music and fashion as completely intertwined simply reflects how my generation grew up—we simply cannot conceive of one without a full helping of the other. Beats gets that, too. It’s obvious that the brand agrees with me that the best of music can only be paired with the best in design." The new collection from Beats and Balmain delivers a premium sound and exquisite design that reflects Olivier’s iconic style. Both the Beats Studio Wireless and Powerbeats3 Wireless are finished in Khaki and Safari colors with metallic gold accents, to represent Olivier’s vision of a dreamlike urban safari. Each comes with a matching suede case adorned with a Balmain plaque and the Balmain coin zipper pull.Available now at Apple.com, Balmain’s New York and Los Angeles stores.BONUS!
