The Marc by Marc Jacobs x Urbanears collection marks an exciting collaboration between fashion luxury and technological design.

The collection takes a page out of Mother Nature's book when it comes to color, texture and the overall aesthetic of the headphones. More specifically, the collection borrows from three elements: Ocean, Oil and Berries. Sound a little disparate? The collection was reaching for the "extremes" that nature has to offer.

The Ocean colorway is the most tranquil and serene option -- a necessary departure from the bustling, smoggy, concrete-filled context of urban life. Meanwhile, the berries color scheme is deep, delicious and inspired by a famous Scandinavian fruit. Lastly, the oil colorway features a two-tone design. The minimalist, pared-back design is exemplified by the Kransen and Humlan headphones.
