Motofumi Kogi, better known throughout the fashion realm as Poggy, has embarked on yet another collaboration that suits his eclectic style perfectly.
Seemingly a match made in heaven, the NYC-based premium headphone brand Master & Dynamic has also been on a bit of a collaboration kick as of late, and this latest pairing looks to be one of their best. Destined to be unveiled later today at Liberty Fairs Las Vegas, during the aptly named Poggy’s World event, this custom hand-painted variant of the Master & Dynamic MH40 over-ear headphones will be limited to only 20 units and sold via United Arrows & Sons in Japan with a retail price of $550.
Master & Dynamic hasn’t been in business all that long, yet their headphones continue to garner huge praise from both audiophiles and style geeks alike for their sturdy construction and top-notch sound quality. In a market that’s already saturated with big-box brands who all have monstrous R&D budgets, Master & Dynamic has emerged triumphantly as having built the best-sounding wireless headphones on the market, according to a recent review by Wired.
From a design standpoint, both their over-ear and on-ear options are stylish while staying somewhat minimal. Most importantly, the brand focuses on the use of high-quality leathers and machined stainless steel, rather than the less-durable plastics that are far too common in the headphone world.
Since Poggy has been at the helm of United Arrows & Sons as their creative director, the brand has tackled some impressive collaborations with the likes of Greats Brand shoes, musician-turned-artist Cali Thornhill Dewitt, and even Adidas. Balancing a fine line between urban/architectural and that warm, cozy old-man-sweater feel is by no means an easy task — yet by the looks of the current United Arrows & Sons collection, Poggy has it perfectly locked down.
