OK hipsters, you have some explaining to do.
I was waiting for the subway yesterday and I noticed this bald dude with what I thought was a strange looking headband resting around his neck. Upon closer inspection, I realized they were actually headphones, wrapped in blonde hair, Princess Leia style.
My train had just come, otherwise I was getting my camera out to ask for a picture, but man…I was floored. It was one of the funkiest things I’ve seen in a while as far as hair accessories go.
Upon a little more research, I found that these headphones actually made their debut at Limi Feu’s S/S 2009 show during Paris Fashion Week (the line is by Limi Yamamoto, daughter of renowned Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto). Models at the show were casually walking down the runway, holding iPods connected to their furry headsets.
The young designer is even asked about the headphones by a reporter backstage, but unfortunately, it looked like Limi was struggling to answer in English so we don’t get any real explanation (see it around 1:30 in the video here).
I wonder how much they go for. What are your thoughts on this new Asian hair accessory?
