Wave farewell to your ill-fitting, sound-leaky earphones, and say a significantly more stylish hello to Molami
, a new brand from Stockholm designed by Maria von Euler. An industrial designer by trade, Maria's experience at Zound Industries between classes at university, propelled her degree project, naturally forming the beginnings of her brand. Molami
's range of luxury headphones is tailored for those who take pride in personal style even when they're on-the-go listening to music/watching films etc. Twine
is a great example of this as it gives the illusion of wearing a headband, made of silk-satin, chiffon and gold hardware, and has city-chic written all over it.
styles are more conventional headphones in overall design, but the difference is in the details, both are available in black and white napa leather, with the Pleat also available in black suede (in case you're feeling extra plush). These styles in particular are the result of Maria's experience in tailoring and fashion design, realising how materials and shapes flatter the female face, this approach has never been considered in the headphone industry.
And if that wasn't a tactile/sensory feast all styles feature braided textile-wrapped cords, subtle 18K gold accents, and a gold plated remote. We've road-tested all three styles and they all feel great when worn, but who can complain when their ears are smothered in silk and napa leather. Molami
is a brand that's definitely geared towards women but who's to say men can't pull off a pair of napa black leather and gold Pleat
headphones? Just saying. Prices start from £125. Stocked on Apple.com or check Molami for stockists.
