Beats by Dre X Fragment Design Collectionby Shruti Shree
The wraps of the latest collection of Japanese designer Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design was taken off by Beats by Dr. Dre. Beats, just like the Artist Series by Apple is a canvas where world’s most renowned and loved artists come together to tell a story. Hiroshi who is a musician and DJ has created new sounds by combining punk and hip hop elements and crafted them into something totally unexpected. Solo 2 and Pill Speaker are just as unique as his fashion collection. Solo 2 which is Beat’s flagship headphone looks bold and a class apart, and the Pill speaker has a matte white and gloss silver design. When asked about the inspiration behind the design, Hiroshi said he wanted them to look like something coming out of a science fiction movie. The collection was launched at the Omotsando Apple location in Tokyo on December 5th last year.
Solo2 with silver plated finish can be bought from Apple’s online store for $199.95. The Pill speaker is also available for the same price.
