Designers typically collaborate with either each other, or other beauty and retail companies. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this Alexander Wang collaboration could be the first of its kind.
Alexander Wang is turning to Samsung for his latest collaboration to create a limited-edition bag, which will be available for purchase in select Alexander Wang boutiques and Wang’s website this summer.
The bag’s design is inspired by sketches and photos created by a group of various photographers, stylists and friends, whose images will serve as the basis for the bag’s print. Samsung’s role in the collaboration? All of the images will be created using the newest tech craze, a Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Proceeds of this sale will be donated to ArtStart, a New York City charity that aims to nurture the creative talents of at-risk children and youths.
I’m all for these kinds of collaborations from here on out.
