The luxury fashion
industry is constantly evolving, incorporating new looks and receiving fresh design inspiration, but when high-fashion designers segue into the ever-growing world of technology are they simply setting themselves up for failure? One would think the old adage “don’t quit your day job” would apply, however, the Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana’s collaboration with high-end audio company Grado to create luxury headphones
that are just as aesthetically pleasing as they are pleasing to the ears is a surprising success.
As is the case with so many partnerships between the fashion and technology industry, sheer function is put on the back-burner and the style becomes the main selling point. The new Dolce & Gabbana by Grado headphones prove that this doesn’t have to be the case. Being one of the leaders in design engineering for the audio and recording industries, Grado is famous for its remarkable, top value headphones, ultimately leading them to become part of the Audio Hall of Fame. The Dolce & Gabbana team contains Grado’s top tier expertise and features its “open-air” technology that allows for clearer sound reproduction for both the high and low frequency bands.
