In the latest edition of weird designer collaborations, design wunderkind Alexander Wang has paired up with -- wait for it -- tech giant Samsung for a limited collection bag, reports Women's Wear Daily.
But before you get too excited about the prospect of carrying your phone in a Baby Bjorn-like Alexander Wang holster, take a step back. It's not a phone case but rather a bag covered in a print created by Samsung in conjunction with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry, using sketches and photos taken on Samsung phones. Think of it as the merging of fashion and technology... and a collab that, like so many other designer collaborations, is financially beneficial to all involved.
"I am most inspired from my everyday life and the people that surround me, so the idea of a co-creation with the people that I admire and respect the most is very exciting. [...] This collaboration represents a new way that technology and style can come together."
OK, then. While we were surprised to see "Alexander Wang" and "Samsung" in the same stylish sentence, it's not the most unexpected designer collaboration we've seen. Remember Victoria Beckham's work with Range Rover? Or how about Jason Wu's stint as a faucet designer for Brizo?
