Today, music is an integral part of fashion shows. And Balenciaga is no exception to the rule.
Especially since the label launched its playlist curations on Apple Music two years ago, with artists like Rammstein, RuPaul, Aya Nakamura, and Acid Arab.
All were accompanied by collections of exclusive pieces. So it’s no surprise to see the Spanish luxury brand collaborating with the Danish brand at the forefront of acoustic innovation.
The Speaker Bag is both a bag and a speaker. This hybrid object, limited to 20 pieces, was unveiled last July at the 51st Balenciaga Haute Couture show in Paris. Its shape resembles that of the House’s handbags, and its body is made of solid aluminum with a handmade leather-lined compartment in the back. As for its audio performance, the speaker offers up to 18 hours of battery life and Multipoint connectivity.
“Anyone should be able to customize their sound system to exactly match their sound and aesthetic preferences, without compromising on sound quality,” the release explains. Or the art of knowing how to redesign the curves of a portable boombox in a subtle and sculptural way.
