Samsung is no stranger to some amazing collaborations. As if to follow up, the company has again collaborated with Paris-based fashion company Maison Margiela. Together, the companies have made a new Galaxy Z Flip 5 as a follow up to the previous year’s phone.
This special edition Galaxy Z Flip 5 is built upon the foundation of mixing technology and fashion together. Samsung says its new phone incorporates ‘artisanal fashion‘ and includes several accessories to match the ‘Maison Margiela’ theme. There will be two covers: a Flap leather case and a Flipsuit Case. There are also two different designs available to attach to the Flip 5’s backside.
The rear glass has been redesigned, expressing the smallest of details of a Maison Margiela jacket. Innovative silver & metallic effects have been used here, with a ‘signature technique‘ used by the Paris-based fashion house. The phone’s overall design definitely captures the essence of the highly-coveted Maison look.
The cover display of the phone will also show various themes that match with the overall design. The details of the phone’s themes will be inspired by the collection made by the Paris-based brand. It is truly an experience to unbox the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 Maison. The box opens in a beautiful stacked manner, and the design itself represents the kind of storage that is used in atelier stores (a French term meaning “artist’s studio“) to store threads & fabric samples.
“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.” – Stephanie Choi, Head of Marketing at Samsung Electronics Mobile Business
