One of the many wonderful things about New York City is that it’s constantly changing… It doesn’t matter if you’ve lived in the city for a couple months or several years, there’s always something new for you to see.
While walking down the Hudson River Park the other day I stumbled across this massive graphic structure: “The Artists Monument” by Tony Tasset containing the names of 392,486 modern and contemporary creators from Vincent Van Gogh and Andy Warhol to up-and-coming artists alphabetically engraved on the surface of this vibrantly colored sculpture as part of the 2014 Whitney Biennial.
As soon as I saw it I thought, wouldn’t be incredible to use the monument as a backdrop for a fashion photo shoot? Genius, I know! – Kiddinnnng. But seriously! I knew right away what I wanted to wear and it would be the perfect opportunity to test out my Urbanears headphones (that I got a few months ago at their launch party in Chelsea).
Sidenote: If you follow my Instagram you totally know what I’m talking about, if you don’t, what are you waiting for? I take really good pictures and it’s a daily diary of my life adventures, love affairs and of course my taste in fashion.
Back to the point, I’ll be blunt; I hated hated hated wearing big headphones, especially to the gym… Call me crazy or whatever but I just didn’t get it. I used to think it was disgusting and kind of obnoxious. – We all have issues deal with it! LOL. However, ever since I got my Humlan headphones from Urbanears I’m a believer! – NOT to be confused with a ‘Belieber’
Urbanears really understands how and why headphones are used and worn…. Beyond sound, their vision is to make headphones that feel more like clothes than chromed plastics.
With the launch of their Humlan line they entirely accomplish that. Just like your favorite t-shirt, Humlan’s headband and ear cushions can be removed and thrown in the wash. They also come with some handy features like the ZoundPlug for instant music sharing and a microphone and remote for picking up calls and hands-free talking. Fashionable yet functional, isn’t that clever?
I’ve always said that accessories make the outfit and Urbanears are for sure a ‘must have’ for the stylish yet tech savvy guy. Pick out your favorite color and brighten up your ensemble this spring! #colorPOP
