With the collection's arrival in stores fast approaching, we dreamed of luxurious morning commutes, listening to This American Life through our high-fashion headphones, nothing but a tuft of cool leather touching our ears. After all, these are basically like a Chanel handbag for your head, that are also perfectly practical for jamming out to your favorite Pandora station. Alas, this scenario's for the dream state, only — unless you have a cool $5,000 to spare.
The brand revealed that the headphones, which came to be through a partnership with tech company Monster, will be available for purchase in September. The Daily Mail reports that these will retail in the U.K. for 4,170 pounds, which means jam sessions à la Chanel will set you back a couple months' rent in NYC. Maybe in an alternate universe — one where we run to the corner store to pick up lait de Coco on the regular — we will be able to indulge in some Chanel tech. For now, we'll have to keep accessorizing our head bopping with earbuds.
