Skullcandy partners for a softer touch

La Vie en Rose designs earphones across the pink spectrum.


Perhaps the most surprising thing about Skullcandy's latest earphones is that they were designed jointly with another company. Why, we wonder, would an outfit that already produces headphones with gunbelts and neon colors solicit help in coming up with a new design?

Maybe they needed a more delicate touch from the designers at La Vie en Rose for "all shades of the pink rainbow" in fuchsia and magenta, as Shiny Shiny says. These pink additions seem somewhat ingruous for lines with names like "Full Metal Jacket" and "Lowrider," but maybe that's the point. Let's hope the trend doesn't go the way of Hello Kitty.
