Perhaps you walk into a party dressed to the nines, only to discover that the “must-attend” bash is in need of some major beats, or you are simply looking for a sleek way to enjoy your music at home; whatever the reason, new electronics brand STELLÉ Audio Couture ensures that these adventures sound just as stylish as they look. Bridging the gap between technology and fashion, the people at STELLÉ believe that sound is a fashion accessory to life, and if that’s the case, their Pillar speakers and Audio Clutch are definitely “in”.
Available in several different colors, the Pillar is one of STELLÉ’s first premium audio products and a luxurious home accessory that fits elegantly within the framework of any home and design aesthetic. These lightweight and high-end speakers enable you to stream your audio wirelessly for up to 15 hours of continuous play and is able to link up with your phone, showing the product's battery life right on your screen so you'll always know when it's time for a recharge. Pillar speakers also feature a built-in microphone for speakerphone capabilities, allowing you to answer calls from up to 10 feet away.
STELLÉ's Audio Clutch design was made possible by the company's collaboration with handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff. The stylish accessory clearly showcases Minkoff’s superb taste and innovation, combined with the premium sound and high-end design provided by STELLÉ. From the outside, it’s a chic and stylish clutch, but inside it's a Bluetooth enabled device that can easily spice up any situation. The device gets a range of up to 50 feet and has a battery life of 15 hours.
This stealthy and boxy accessory comes in an array of vibrant hues and was carried by the stunning model, Hilary Rhonda, in the Rebecca Minkoff runway show during the 2012 New York Fashion Week, and was an official accessory for the designers Spring 2013 Collection.
Of the collaboration, Minkoff said, “I am truly excited to design this collection with STELLÉ Audio Couture. Their vision for building beautiful, premium consumer electronics aimed at fashionable females is so refreshing and innovative. It’s the perfect collaboration for me to expand my label into electronics without sacrificing my signature design aesthetic in any way and I look forward to seeing our audio Clutch on the runway.”
The STELLÉ Audio Couture products hit retail stores in February 2013. The Pillar retails for $349, the STELLÉ Clutch for $299 and the Rebecca Minkoff clutch comes in at $399.
