An exclusive Galaxy Z Flip 5 model is approaching, all thanks to a new partnership between Samsung Electronics and the Parisian Haute Couture brand Maison Margiela. By combining the brand identities of Samsung Galaxy and Maison Margiela, this cooperation takes innovation even further and creates a gadget that appeals to those who seek uniqueness and a breath of fresh air. With so many customization choices to enable users to express their own personalities, the Galaxy Z Flip is more than simply a foldable gadget. It’s a pocketable self-expression tool; this perfectly fits with the cornerstone of Maison Margiela’s combo, which is its own brand of identity-shattering conventions. Starting on November 30, a few markets will have the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Maison Margiela version.
Samsung and Maison Margiela over the years:
On a limited-edition Galaxy Z Flip 4 last year, the two films worked together. Establishing ground-breaking concepts is a desire shared by Samsung and Maison Margiela, two separate brands. As another example of its innovative tradition in creating forward-thinking technologies, Samsung has transformed the foldable smartphone market and provided a new mobile experience. Concurrently, the fashion world is still in a state of shock at Maison Margiela’s deconstructed yet elegant designs.
The latest partnership between the two businesses showcases their shared thinking by fusing cutting-edge technology with creative design. Exclusive to Hong Kong, France, and South Korea, the special edition from the previous year was released. It is unknown whether the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Maison Margiela version will be available in other countries.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 Maison Margiela Edition:
- Using a method peculiar to this limited edition, the rear glass of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Maison Margiela Edition openly displays the inside workings of a Maison Margiela garment.
- The special edition captures the essence that goes beyond simple visual appeal by producing a semi-transparent look that reveals the garment’s secret structure and features.
- It is a reworking of the design ethos, which emphasizes the device’s inherent qualities as well as its outward appearance.
- With its natural black leather, woven fabric, and real fabric trademark labels, the Flap Leather case exquisitely displays the atelier’s artistic skill.
- The reverse of the cover features exquisite handwoven embroidery that perfectly captures Maison Margielagiela’s “work-in-progress” aesthetic.
- A lovely touch is added when the gadget is opened, revealing the pocket design, which is then hidden when it is closed.
- Boldly expressing the brand’s quest for originality and inventiveness is the Flipsuit case. It comes with two Flipsuit cards with the silver plate and paint spatter pattern, both of which have the unique numbering design of Maison Margiela on them.
- Attaching the card to the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s back causes the gadget to take on a whole other theme.
- The Flex Window, which draws inspiration from Maison Margiela’s exquisite Artisanal line, showcases every element of the new concept.
- A unique stitching pattern in the middle of the flap not only symbolizes the unfinished design of Maison Margiela but also the gadget itself and its packaging.
- The overall design of the packaging is reminiscent of the archival sample storage used in atelier stores to hold different threads and fabric samples.
- The device fits smoothly with Maison Margiela’s atelier, all credit to the paper-based woven book cloth fabric covering its exterior.
Stephanie Choi, EVP and Head of Marketing for Mobile Experience Business at Samsung Electronics, said, Samsung and Maison Margiela have continued to surprise the industry by breaking conventions and norms and supporting those who seek individuality. This second collaboration between the two brands brings together fashion and technology by approaching a high-tech device in a way similar to the construction of an haute couture garment. Through this collaboration, we want consumers to discover their own identity and express it without limitation.”
