A FRENDS Pop-Up Is Coming To NYC Just In Time For The Holidays
Chances are you've probably seen your favorite DJs rocking these super chic headphones on Instagram, but you might not have known about the Los Angeles-based brand FRENDS, which collaborates with some of fashion's biggest names to bring you super chic headphones. Just in time for the holidays, FRENDS is opening a pop-up shop in New York City's Soho neighborhood.
According to a press release, the FRENDS pop-up shop will feature limited edition collections of FRENDS headphones from Zadig & Voltaire, Swarovski, Dolce & Gabbana, and Instagram-famous DJ May Kwok, as well as feature products exclusive to the pop-up and free gifts for shoppers. If you can't make it to the pop-up, you can always shop the designer collections online, but I imagine the in-store experience will be super cool, so if you live in NYC, it's totally worth a trip.
The pop-up is open until Dec. 27, giving you ample time to shop the various collections and get something for everyone on your list. The best part is that you can run into the pop-up after Christmas, and use all of your holiday money to get a pair for yourself (which I totally want to do).
Here are a few of our favorite pairs of FRENDS headphones to look out for at the pop-up:
1. Dolce & Gabbana Crown Headphones
FRENDS x Dolce & Gabbana Embellished Leather Headphones With Gold Crown, $8,895, wearefrends.com
I don't think anyone but royalty would buy these uber expensive headphones, but boy are they pretty (and the crown is a nice touch).
2. This Pair From The May Kwok Collab
FRENDS x May Kwok White & Silver Headphones, $229.99, wearefrends.com
Since Kwok is an actual DJ, you know that these headphones are legit. And they're pretty, so it's really a win-win.
3. These Subtle Swarovski Ones
FRENDS x Swarovski Layla Gunmetal With Crystals, $199.95, wearefrends.com
I like the thin headband portion of these, and if you look closely, there are a few crystals on the earphone caps. Bonus: They fold up and can fit in a clutch.
4. These Zadig & Voltaire Headphones
Zadig & Voltaire Meets FRENDS Headphones, $250, zadig-et-voltaire.com
I'm kind of in love with anything Zadig & Voltaire, and these headphones, which originally made an appearance at their Autumn Winter 2015/16 fashion show, are pretty sweet.
But, for those you who don't live in NYC, or don't have a Dolce & Gabbana budget, I would recommend shopping the FRENDS x Baublebar collaboration. The gem-encrusted headphones are just as glam without costing you an arm and a leg.
The NYC FRENDS Pop-up is located at 160 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002 until Dec. 27.
