Soundfreaq partners with Clashist

MUMBAI: Soundfreaq, maker of the critically acclaimed line of wireless speakers, is teaming up withClashist, a popular LA-based fashion and accessory company known for its progressive and creative digital prints, to launch a limited edition line of Soundfreaq’s award-winning speakers. The Soundfreaq x Clashist Collection includes three Clashist designs on Soundfreaq’s Sound Rise and Sound Platform 2, and three custom Clashist pouches bundled with Soundfreaq’s ultra-portable, Bluetooth speaker Pocket Kick. The limited edition line is available now on Soundfreaq.com and Clashist.com.

Clashist, founded in 2013 by Heather Lipner, quickly gained popularity for its line of digitally printed apparel, inspired by pop culture with its progressive prints and nostalgic motifs. The Soundfreaq x Clashist Collection combines Clashist’s hyper-real designs with Soundfreaq’s highly praised line of Bluetooth speakers to serve the fashion forward, stylish music lover.

“The Clashist prints turn our speakers inside out. They bring the vibrancy, detail and impact of the sound we strive to craft to the visual with color and pattern,” Soundfreaq, co-founder and creative director, Matthew Paprocki. “LA is full of bold, personal expression and unexpected juxtapositions. Together we embraced that spirit and are delighted to share these designs."

The Soundfreaq x Clashist Collection includes three Clashist prints that demonstrate strong, beautiful movement. Oil Slick captures the memory of the day after a heavy rainstorm, Sand Art shows the blend of colors the minute sand starts to mix together and Utopia represents a fantastic new world when autumn begins.

“This is an exciting collaboration for Clashist because I’ve definitely thought of Clashist as a graphic focused company, not necessarily tied to apparel,” said Clashist, creative director and founder, Heather Lipner. “I love that our prints are now on Soundfreaq’s speakers, they look as captivating as they sound.”

All three prints are featured on Soundfreaq’s Sound Rise and Sound Platform 2, and on custom pouches that are bundled with Soundfreaq’s Pocket Kick. And just as Soundfreaq’s speakers are meticulously sound crafted, each Clashist unit is handcrafted, making each speaker pattern unique, so no two speakers are alike.

Sound Rise, named a CES “Best in Show” finalist by iLounge, is Soundfreaq’s modern bedroom speaker and alarm clock packed with tons of smart features for the modern music lover.

Sound Platform 2 is Soundfreaq’s most powerful Bluetooth speaker, designed to be the ultimate home system with immersive stereo and studio-like clarity. Sound Platform 2’s features include dual USB charging ports, allowing not just one, but two smartphones or tablets to charge simultaneously. For an even more immersive listening experience, Sound Platform 2 features DSS (Dual System Streaming), allowing two systems to be paired together, working as one speaker system with left and right audio, filling a room with powerful, balanced sound.

Each Clashist Pocket Kick pouch will retail for $100.
