Collaborations come and go. Some are exceptional, others odd or merely opportunistic. But when we heard that Alexander Wang designed a limited-edition collection of ear-gear for Beats by Dr. Dre — including headphones, earbuds, and a speaker — we approved immediately.

Part of the reason Wang rarely makes a misstep is because he follows his interests. He is known for his stellar music taste and, as he tells WWD, Beats are his headphones of choice. But the real question is, if Alexander Wang is wearing Limited Edition Alexander Wang Beats by Dre Headphones while listening to Dr. Dre, will the world explode?
