Jeff Staple is singing a new tune.
The Reed Space founder and Staple Design creative director, who has collaborated with brands such as Nike, New Balance and Airwalk, designed limited-edition “Pigeon” headphones for Beats by Dre, a producer of audio products and equipment.
“I’ve been talking to Beats for a while,” Staple said. “For me, there’s no better medium to get our street culture message across than to do a headphone.”
So what’s playing on Staple’s iPod? “D’Angelo,” he said, adding that he’s been listening to a lot of R&B music lately. “I’m kind of a laidback cat.”
