EVOKE SENSES

B&O PLAY delivers stand-alone products with clear and simple operations - portable products that are intuitive to use, easy to integrate into your daily life, and deliver excellent high-quality experiences.

We want to evoke senses, to elevate the experience of listening and watching. We have spoken to musicians and studio recorders who all love the fact that more people listen to music in more places, but hate the fact that the quality of the listening experience has been eroded. We want to provide the opportunity to experience media in a convenient and easy way but still in outstanding high quality.

Firmly grounded in our 90 year history in Bang & Olufsen, we interpret the same core values for a new type of contemporary products:

Design

We seek design that matters. Design that naturally makes our products express how they want to be used. To us, design is not just the beautiful shape we wrap our technology in.

Performance

We deliver best sound and acoustic performance in our class of products – natural and balanced to best reproduce the emotions that the artist wanted to convey.

Humanization

We adapt technology to fit human needs, not the other way around.

Craftsmanship

We are always honest in our material choices and pay attention to every detail in the design and assembly.

We asked Olivier Rousteing of the legendary fashion house Balmain to select and style an outfit from his new collection that ooze music and complements our products. Here's what he chose...

OLIVIER ROUSTEING

Born: September 13, 1986 in Bordeaux France

Educated: the Ecole Supérieure des Arts et Techniques de la Mode

Residing in: Paris, France

Parisians are – by and large – obsessed with fashion, but it’s not often you find one with style like Betty Autier.

The 31-year-old blogger and founder of hugely popular Internet fashion resource Le Blog de Betty has built up a huge online following thanks to her playful mix of couture chic and kooky, girl-next-door good humour.

Having lived for several years in the French capital, she recently took the plunge and packed her bags for America along with long-term boyfriend and photographer Mathieu Lebreton. And, judging by the steady stream of photos emerging from her social media accounts, the pair seem to be having a pretty great time.

In this photo-editorial – shot by Mathieu at a hotel in Palm Springs as part of the pair’s ongoing roadtrip – you get a glimpse at exactly what has made her such a star these past few years. While a simple white Calvin Klein tee could be a part of any everyday outfit, her insistence on pairing

it with a shocking pink Dolce & Gabbana ostrich feather skirt and Valentino kitten heels shows just how ingrained her sense of fun really is.

Like any die-hard digital native, her smartphone is never far from her hand, but it’s that studded leather backpack and set of BeoPlay H6 headphones that really complete the look of a girl ready to explore a new city – and a whole new country to boot! To keep up with her continuing exploits, check out Le Blog de Betty.

Meet the hatmaker and owner of Veronica Marucci Chapeaux

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into hatmaking?

I was born in Italy and that's where I studied fashion design and became a designer. During my studies I became especially interested in the millinery arts – or hatmaking. After I graduated I spent several years working in Italy, then I moved to Paris to get professional milliner's training at Madame de Jouffroy’s atelier. I had a dream to reinvent the hat! The way hats can complete a style and look is something I find truly unique – wearing one is such a deliberate choice that reflects the wearer's personality, how it can change your face and transform a seemingly ordinary outfit into a piece of art. This is how the hat is a very powerful accessory.

Q: When you have time off, what do you do?

Running my shop and making hats for clients means that I have a very busy schedule, but when I’m off I try to enjoy the simple pleasures of life; eating, drinking, looking at art and listening to music. So I try and keep all kinds of cultural offers high on my list of leisure activities. Of course, there's a part of experiencing culture that is linked to me getting inspired for work, but I believe that being widely exposed to all aspects of art and culture is healthy for the overall quality of life. I also try to meet people all the time – the more different the better.

Q: What are you wearing right now?

I usually wear black and dark clothes – and I am definitely a trousers girl!

My clothes are from the Italian brands Brunello Cuccinelli and Alberto Biani. The fur is one that I picked up in Milan and is made of fox. It can be transformed into different shapes and styles via the sewn-in magnets – some very clever detail.

Q: Where are your favourite places in Paris?

My shop, the hat shop, of course!

Jokes aside, I have three favourite places depending on the weather and time of day:

When it's grey, rainy and awful, the river Seine is my favourite place. It's so beautiful and the gloomy weather really goes well with all the grandeur of the riverside buildings.

When it's a sunny, warm day I go to Marche aux Puces Saint-Ouen – a flea market in Northern Paris – looking for small trinkets and art pieces. I can spend hours up there!

In the evening, Montmartre, is definitely my favourite. Maybe it's a little bit of a cliché, but all the small streets and the joie d’vivre up there is enchanting.

Q: What is your favourite clothing brand?

Valentino. At the moment I am a little saddened by the state of the fashion industry. It is all about marketing and branding – you can’t often see the real craft of the work because it isn’t there. Valentino is for me a proof of the contrary. I visited them recently in Italy and they stick to the artisanal approach of manufacturing clothing. That comforts me.

Otherwise, I think that Céline and Chanel are still keep up the good work with their collections and styles. They have a foot in both the heritage of the brand and in seeking new ways of expression.
