EAR CANDY: Sydney-based fashion label Sass & Bide is releasing a set of headphones with California-based premium women’s headphones company Frends. A customized version of Frends’ best-selling “Taylor” style, the foldable, limited-edition cans feature a black-and-gold chevron pattern on each cap — the chevron being a Sass & Bide signature — plus memory foam ear cushions covered in stitched black leather, three-button control on a fabric cord and a zip-up case.

Due to arrive in select Sass & Bide stores this week — including the SoHo, New York flagship — and at sassandbide.com, for 249.95 Australian dollars, or $216.27, the headphones are Frends’ latest fashion collaboration project, after previous hookups with Rebecca Minkoff, Barbara Bui, A.L.C., BaubleBar and two other Australian brands this year: swimwear label We Are Handsome and Mimco accessories.
