Skullcandy Inc., the original lifestyle audio brand, today launched an exclusive partnership with Collina Strada,
the New York-based label created by designer Hillary Taymour. Available exclusively at Skullcandy.com, the collaboration includes two products – the Crusher Evo Headphones and the Indy Evo True Wireless Earbuds. Both pairs, featuring a colourful tie-dye style print designed by Taymour, were first featured in the Collina Strada A/W 2020 collection as models wearing the pieces bounced down a garden-themed runway.
More than just ready-to-wear, Collina Strada is a platform for social change and climate awareness through self-expression, reflection and sustainability. Through her fearless, youthful and even humorous designs, Taymor seeks to ask the question, “How can you be the best version of yourself today?”
For Hillary Taymour collaborating with Skullcandy was a natural choice: “As a personal advocate for environmentalism, counterculture and self-expression, it only made sense to partner with Skullcandy,” she said, “They are committed to climate change with their work with Protect our Winters and are supporters of an eclectic mix of emerging musical artists. Together with Skullcandy I’ve been able to infuse the unique Collina look into a rather utilitarian piece for an energized take on an everyday device.”
Similar to the eco-friendly and socially conscious fashion brand, Skullcandy has a long standing partnership with non-profit Protect Our Winters with climate change being an integral cause that the brand supports. Additionally, Skullcandy’s Mood Boost campaign supports mental health among Millennials and Gen Z through music, visual design partnerships and limited edition product drops.
This limited edition drop is the first designer headphone within the Skullcandy portfolio of products.
“We loved the bold designs Hillary Taymour was able to create on our headphones and feature in her NYFW show earlier this year,” said Jessica Klodnicki, CMO of Skullcandy. “As our first venture into the world of fashion with such a talented designer as Hillary, we are excited to bring looks from the New York runway to our consumers as a leading audio lifestyle brand constantly evolving and pushing our own boundaries.”
