arca — @arca1000000 on instagram — posts selfies in drag and, well, mostly just selfies in drag. oh, and leather! lots of leather. if you’ve never heard of venezuelaela-based DJ / music producer, arca, he is exactly the kind of person that would design 6,450 dollar BDSM headphones.

‘SSENSE exclusive black arca edition tormenta cage headphone head piece’  is the result of a three-entity collaboration between arca, luxury retailer ssense and leather company fleet ilya. these BDSM headphones are breaking the internet for its outrageous price-tag and questionable design-integrity.

just as you start reevaluating the integrity of the entire structure, ssense drops this bomb near the bottom of the description: ‘the product in this page is being sold to you exclusively as an art object and is provided as is without any guarantees or warranty. in association with the product, ssense makes no warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, of title, or of non infringement of third party rights. use of the product by a user is at the user’s own risk and peril.’

 

$6,450. for those interested in the SSENSE exclusive black arca edition tormenta cage headphone head piece, act now. there’s only one left.
