Officially part of Apple starting today, Beats by Dr. Dre wasted no time in teasing its latest collaboration with fashion designer Riccardo Tisci. Most likely to be known as “RT17”, which is short for Tisci’s initials and the number 17, both a lucky number and the years since he left his hometown of Taranto, Italy to pursue a career in fashion. So far, there are no details on whether the creative director of GIVENCHY will be doing a pair of Beats headphones, Beats Pill wireless speaker, or something completely new. There is also the question of when the collection will be available. However, if last year’s Alexander Wang x Beats By Dr. Dre Collection was an indicator, then the Riccardo Tisci x Beats by Dr. Dre “RT17” Collection should be available during Holiday 2014.
P.S. - Before we forget, Happy Birthday, Riccardo Tisci!
