Closer Look | Diesel VETKR by Monster Headphones

Monster recently gave us the opportunity to give one of their latest designs, a collaborative effort with Diesel. The VEKTR takes much of what we know about the Beats-making headphone brand and throws it out the window, along with the mixed reviews of past headphones. These ones having a backing of a reputable clothing label and feature a design that’s equal parts functional and futuristic. Win-win. The multi-planar, tri-fold design can be easily collapsed to fit your backpack and pull out with ease with a detachable triangular cable for tangle free use. The quality of listening is higher than what we’ve seen in past designs, a sign Monster continues to focus on research and innovation even while reaching widespread success. We’ve put together a short video (below) for your viewing, giving a closer look at the headphones and showing off some of the VEKTR’s finest aesthetic details.

The Diesel VEKTR headphones can be had now via Monster.

NYFW | Diesel Black Gold Fall/Winter 2011 Presentation

We’ve gotten our hands on a couple shots from Diesel Black Gold’s A/W 2011 presentation at New York Fashion Week. There’s much to be had here and I can say that with much confidence. The distressed leather jacket shown above is just one example how well crafted this collection truly is. Timeless staples such as a black peacoat are mixed in with slim fit suiting and must-have mid layer pieces.

Diesel Bruce Duffel Bag

From Diesel comes the Bruce Duffel. This rectangular nylon travel bug is fitted with grey nylon webbing trim, a front zip pocket and an I.D. slot with a leather velcro cover. It’s definitely more unique than your traditional duffel as it has duo rolled handles as well as a detachable adjustable shoulder strap with side hooks that really give it some character. It’s available in black or olive green.
