Apple-owned Beats drew up a new limited-edition Studio Buds design Wednesday in collaboration with Daily Paper, an Amsterdam-based, African-inspired fashion brand.
In the new design, the signature white case in particular looks heavily tagged with blacked graffiti and the brand name in red.

Beats said in a tweet Daily Paper‘s spring/summer 2022 clothing collection inspires the custom Studio Buds. As such, they celebrate hip-hop culture from the 1970s to the 1990s.
“Music is one of the most important brand pillars for us as it brings our community together,” said Abderrahmane Trabsini, Daily Paper’s co-founder and design director. “Working with Beats has always been on our wish list of collaborations. It’s also an extension of the current SS22 collection which is inspired by hip-hop culture.”
The earbuds feature a white, black, and red color scheme with Daily Paper branding.
