When a leading French luxury fashion house and a Danish high-end consumer electronics brand collaborate, it’s best to sit up and listen. Quite literally in this case. Paris-based Saint Laurent has just curated two very stylish, limited-edition Bang & Olufsen speakers: the Beoplay A1 and Beoplay A9. The exclusive collaboration celebrates the timeless design and unique craftsmanship that have come to define both brands.
Beoplay A9 Home Speaker
This multi-room wireless speaker is decidedly sleek, offering smooth controls with just a gentle glide of your hand. It can be connected to any music streaming service of choice, and for a more immersive experience, you can even pair it with more speakers. The device supports Chromecast, Bluetooth and AirPlay 2, and the audio quality is top notch. The limited-edition speaker by Saint Laurent builds up on the speaker’s iconic design with black, anodised, mirror-black aluminium legs, complete with a Saint Laurent signature in black.
Beoplay A1 Portable Speaker
This ultra portable speaker is splash and dust resistant, and has an in-built microphone. With ambient 360-degree sound, the speaker packs a punch, and it’s small enough to fit into your pocket, making it the ideal speaker for those on the move. One of the most striking features of the Beoplay A1 is its 24-hour battery life. The limited-edition speaker features a high-gloss, black Saint Laurent logo on the aluminium grill and a logo tag in mirror-black anodised-aluminium.
You can check out both speakers at Saint Laurent Rive Droite, a cultural and creative concept store envisaged by the brand. The retail destination has its presence in Paris and Los Angeles.
