Samsung and Thom Browne collaborate on limited edition Galaxy Z Flip
Samsung has gone super high fashion with its latest collaboration with New York fashion house Thom Browne. The new phone is designed in Thom Browne's signature brand colors on a pebble grey exterior and comes with additional products - custom designed Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Watch Active2.
However, unlike the Galaxy Fold, the new Galaxy Z Flip folds horizontally.
The exterior of the phone has been inspired by the classic grey Thom Browne suit and the phone is encased fully in glass featuring the distinctive Thom Browne signature brand colors down the center.
Iconic blinds—a reference to the mid-century office aesthetic at the center of the Thom Browne world—appear onscreen every time the phone is turned on and off. App icons, labeled in classic text, create an elemental Thom Browne uniformity. The sound features on the phone include—a typewriter for the keyboard, an analogue ringtone, a shoe tap on a marble floor along with custom Thom Browne wallpaper.
As a part of the exclusive collaboration, consumers will find a Galaxy Watch Active2 with a grey leather strap and a Thom Browne custom watch face with Galaxy Buds+ in matching grey, as well as a specially designed leather phone case.
“We designed Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition just like I do my collections—with proportion, individuality and aesthetic in mind—to create the perfect blend of art and technology,” said Thom Browne.
A limited quantity of Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition devices will be available in select markets. Pre-orders for the device will begin February 14 on Samsung.com and Thombrowne.com, as well as at NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER.
