It’s my belief in life that the best music comes out in the Summertime. Maybe this is less to do with belief and more to do with the pure fact that every artist has some kind of new album to plug and it’s a lot easier to do this through multiple festival appearances, but alas let’s not go down that cynical road.
But it’s not just artists promoting their music this summer. Take Jay-Z for instance. His latest venture has seen him getting into bed with Skullcandy to produce a range of headphones to make every music (and fashion) fan fall cerrrazy in love. Now we all know Jay-Z is an entrepreneur blah blah blah, has his own colour (YES COLOUR) blah blah blah, but this collaboration has seen Skullcandy bring it’s expertise in music listening and pair it with Roc nation’s street-style vision to develop, shock horror, something quite sophisticated! The ‘Aviator’ as they have been aptly dubbed, came out earlier this year with versions in white, black, and brown. Now I could ramble off all the specs for you but I’m shallow and care more about what they look like (I have read the sound specs and they do sound impressive, just so you know). My only problem is deciding on a pair. The white will be perfect for this Summer’s most difficult trend, the brown will be bang on for Autumn and dusting off my matching Aviator jacket, and the black…well for when I’m having a jolly old emo day…
You can order these from Amazon and the istore for around £150.00.
And for all you creative types, Skullcandy have opened up a comp to design a print to feature on a set of aviators on their facebook page.
