There’s another rapper falling into fashion’s favor. Today, WWD reports, Alexander Wang has teamed up with Dr. Dre to turn out a pair of limited-edition black and gold Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. It’s been a rap-filled year for fashion, what with Kanye West’s A.P.C. collab, A$AP Rocky’s cameo on the Hood by Air runway, and Jay Z’s Picasso Baby shoot, but for Wang, it would seem, it’s all about the D.R.E.
Or, at least, Giuseppe Zanotti does. In an interview with Jay-Z’s Web site Life + Times, Zanotti, who previously collaborated with West on a few pairs of outrageously priced sandals for the rapper’s Spring ’12 ready-to-wear collection, offered, “I really would love having a guest designer like Kanye during Milan’s fashion week. He could shake the system with his adrenaline.” Who knows—maybe bringing the Kingdom of Dopeness to Milano is just the kick in the rear the city’s fashion week needs…then again, maybe it’s not.
