Where Music Meets Fashion: Dolce & Gabbana Headphones
Have you seen Dolce & Gabbana Headphones?
The new item in the Dolce & Gabbana catalog is making noise among the online magazines. People keep saying that the headphones by Dolce & Gabbana have an astonishing price.
We know that the brand is always making fuss among the fashion industry, and the price of the headphones does not surprise us at all.
$8,000 for a pair of fancy headphones from Dolce & Gabbana might sound like a lot of money, but coming from the guys, is something usual.
The headphones are making their way off the catwalk and into stores from all over the world.
The over-the-top collection of bedazzled, the fur trim headphones are another creation of luxury Italian label Dolce & Gabbana.
The headphones, you can treat them as jewelry, were created in collaboration with audio brand Frends.
The jewel-encrusted headphones made their debut on the runway during the fashion house’s Milan Fashion Week show, and are already available to purchase from online retailer Moda Operandi.
Dolce & Gabbana debuted the fox fur (yes, you read that well) trimmed headphones in the hope that the item will be treated like a jewel, rather than an accessory.
But if you’d like to avoid wearing a jewel trimmed with fox fur, the brand also offers a red leather variety for just $7,095.
According to their online description, both pairs of headphones ‘are rendered in nappa leather’ and have been ’embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls’, with the more expensive pair also featuring a green fox fur trim.
Moda Operandi predicts that the headphones will actually be sent out to customers between July 20 and October 30 this year.
And while the extravagant accessories were somewhat overshadowed on the catwalk by the mothers-turned-models chosen by the designers to strut their stuff during the show, their official public launch has quickly set social media alight with a mix of excitement – and horror.
Because diamonds will last forever, the brand is also offering customers the chance to get their own pair of jewel-encrusted accessories which were showcased on the catwalk.
We remember that Chanel once tried something similar with their $7,200 headphones, and now was Dolce & Gabbana’s turn to wow the world.
And they did made a fuss and a big one when they sent their models carrying their children down the runway. The models were wearing on their heads the Dolce & Gabbana headphones which come in three varieties: red, green and gold.
Some are embellished with crystals and pearls, while others were outfitted in fur.
A hunter green pair in nappa leather, embellished with Swarovski crystals, pearls and fox fur, is perhaps the most exquisite, with a pre-sale asking price just shy of $8,000 on Moda Operandi.
A red nappa leather pair embroidered with Swarovski crystals and pearls sans fur (although there was a red fur pair presented on the runway) rings in at $7,095.
So, that’s it for the Dolce & Gabbana headphones and their extravagant style. What do you think?
