On Our Radar: Molami Headphones
During fashion month, Tommy Ton caught several stylish ladies on the streets wearing an accessory you won’t find sitting on the shelves next to the bags and shoes at Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, or Prada. The likes of Anna Dello Russo were pairing their couture frocks with brightly colored, oversize headphones. Recently, I tuned in to a headphone that’s chic enough to rival the rest of Dello Russo (or any style-conscious girl’s) outfit. Molami, a Swedish company that is celebrating its debut in the U.S. tonight at the new New York boutique Fivestory, has created a collection of luxe headphones and earbuds ($200 to $450) made of leather, silk, stingray, and 18-karat gold. There’s Bight, a small earphone; Twine, a silk satin and chiffon blend that doubles as a headwrap; and my favorite, Pleat, an over-ear, boxy headphone made of soft nappa leather. Street-style stalwarts, are you listening?
