New York DJ duo the Martinez Brothers were first to takethe reigns, followed by world-renowned DJ, Nina Kraviz. Now, Ray-Ban Studios is excited announce its collaboration with sonicinnovator, Peggy Gou.
DJ, producer, fashion icon: Gou is a modern polymath, but her sense of self is timeless. Her unique sound – playful and pumping,fusing house and techno with abstract compositions – has permeated electronic club culture for the last few years. She was thefirst Korean woman to play Berghain. Legions of fans scream her name when she takes to stages around the world.
Born in Korea and residing in Berlin – the beating heart of the techno scene – Gou’s journey into music was unpredictable andunstoppable. Her fashion background came into play in her Ray-Ban Studios collaboration, which sees for the first time inRay-Ban’s history, an accessory being sold alongside sunglasses. The gold sunglass chain, complete with Gou’s initials,compliments her two gold leather tipped frames: square with grey-blue polar lenses, and oval with violet lenses.
The Feel Your Beat campaign with Gou connects on a real level with what drives her as a musician. Her world is composed ofdiverse forces: a balance between urban noise and calming nature. She is a global star but her home in South Korea is where shefeels most relaxed, a place to recharge and reconnect.
Gou is an artist, and that takes many expressions. Whether electrifying fans at the club, laying down tracks in the studio, orcollaboratingon exclusive projects, her output is an extension of her individuality. Her beat is all her own. Ray-Ban Studios gets inside it.
