A Fusion of Fashion and Technology

Artisanal Elegance: Galaxy Z Flip5 x Maison Margiela
Both Samsung and Maison Margiela share a commitment to innovation. While Samsung has redefined foldable smartphones, Maison Margiela has consistently challenged fashion norms with its deconstructive yet sophisticated designs. The collaboration showcases a meeting of minds, combining original design with state-of-the-art foldable technology.
The Galaxy Z Flip5 Maison Margiela Edition features a rear glass that boldly displays the inner workings of a Maison Margiela jacket. The silver and metallic effects, exclusive to this edition, enhance the design using Maison Margiela’s signature technique. The semi-transparent effect unveils the hidden structure and details of the garment, capturing the essence of Maison Margiela’s design philosophy.
Craftsmanship Beyond the Surface
The collaboration extends to accessories, with the Flap Leather Case showcasing the artistry of Maison Margiela’s craftsmanship. Crafted from natural black leather and featuring handwoven stitching, the case embodies Maison Margiela’s ‘Work-in-Progress’ design identity. Opening the device reveals a delightful pocket pattern, adding a touch of uniqueness.
The Flipsuit Case, a bold embodiment of creativity, comes with two Flipsuit Cards adorned with a paint splatter design and a silver plate. When attached to the Z Flip5, the device adopts an entirely new theme, displayed on the Flex Window, inspired by Maison Margiela’s delicate Artisanal collection.
Unfinished Elegance: Packaging and Availability
Even the packaging reflects Maison Margiela’s distinctive style, featuring a distinct stitching pattern reminiscent of atelier stores. The paper-based woven book cloth fabric covering the package seamlessly blends the device with Maison Margiela’s atelier, creating a cohesive and elegant presentation.
The Galaxy Z Flip5 Maison Margiela edition is set to hit select markets on November 30. Embrace the fusion of fashion and technology with this limited edition device that goes beyond the surface to redefine elegance and individuality.
