linked by a love for music, fashion and culture, beats by dre and french fashion house balmain have collaborated in a special collection. delivering premium sound and expressing balmain’s iconic style, the new headphones and earphones are finished in safari colors with metallic gold accents, representing olivier rousteing’s — balmain’s creative director — dreamlike vision of an urban safari. the collaboration celebrates diversity, innovation, and the constant challenging of status quo, while sharing the belief that without the multiplicity that music brings, our world would be nothing.

‘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,’ comments olivier rousteing.


‘no matter what you’re going through, when you put on a song that you love, and that you just connect with, it can change your whole mood and just lift you up. even if it’s just for a few minutes… I love that escape music gives us,’ says kylie jenner, the face of the campaign.
