Last night the Rihanna Navy was in a frenzy on Twitter and Instagram after Kuk Harrell, Rihanna’s vocal producer, posted a photo on Instagram with the caption “Mission accomplished!” to which badgalriri replied with several red balloons. For those out of the loop, the red balloon has come to symbolise Anti, the singer’s eighth studio album. Red balloons were used at the album cover reveal, one is visible on the album cover, and it’s even her verified emoji on Snapchat. If there was any doubt that the long-awaited album is finally finished, Rihanna herself took to Twitter today to post the above photo with the caption “listening to ANTI”. Those headphones!
Of course, she needed some killer headphones to listen to the album that’s on everyone’s lips even though we haven’t heard it yet. These are from Dolce & Gabbana‘s Fall/Winter 2015 collection [Look 85] and were designed in collaboration with FRENDS, a brand that specialises in chic headphones for the fashion-conscious. FRENDS makes those rose gold headphones beloved by fashion bloggers worldwide.
This particular piece retails for a whopping $8,895 and is based on FRENDS’ signature Taylor design. The headband and the padded ear cushions are covered in gold nappa leather while the whole thing (crown and all) is covered in Swarovski crystals and pearls and set with gold-plated filigree. The crown is another important symbol for Anti as it is used on the album cover and throughout the ANTIdiary.com experience. The headphones are sold out at FRENDS but you can still purchase from Dolce & Gabbana’s website. And by the way, Rihanna’s body chain was designed by Jacquie Aiche.
