Samsung has launched the Galaxy Z Flip 4 Maison Margiela Edition as the first special edition device for the new foldable. It has been designed in collaboration with the Parisian haute couture house Maison Margiela. The phone features design, accessories, retail packaging, and software elements in line with the fashion house's design philosophy and language.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 Maison Margiela Edition features the brand's signature solid White color with a matte finish. It is said to be "weaved" into the smartphone with a drop of grey to create the optimal shade of white. It utilizes the décortiqué technique as you will be able to see translucent lines signifying the internal circuits of the phone.
There are new wallpaper artworks and icons that have been designed exclusively for the limited edition. Samsung says it used an advanced 3D modeling technique to create a paintbrush artwork that captures a rough brush stroke texture. The team has also worked on new accessories which include a couple of new cases.
The first one is a unique leather case that reflects the bianchetto technique. It is a pure white canvas case featuring four stitches emblem and represents anonymity. The second case is a spin on Maison Margiela’s emblematic numeric coding ring, evoking the house’s DNA.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 Maison Margiela Edition is otherwise the same as the standard variant. It will be sold in select markets including Korea, France, and China (Hong Kong). The sales will begin December 1st but there are no words on the pricing yet.
