Samsung has recently launched a limited-edition smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Maison Margiela Edition, in collaboration with the renowned Parisian fashion house Maison Margiela. This exclusive device boasts a semi-transparent back panel, offering a glimpse into the phone’s inner workings—a design inspired by Maison Margiela’s distinctive deconstructed aesthetic.
Unique Design Features
The semi-transparent back of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 Maison Margiela Edition showcases Maison Margiela’s iconic jacket, creating a visually striking effect. The package includes two premium cases: a Flap Leather Case and a Flipsuit Case. The Flap Leather Case highlights meticulous craftsmanship with its black leather, woven fabric design, and genuine fabric label. Opening the device reveals a pocket pattern, providing an extra layer of detail.
The Flipsuit Case comes with two NFC-based cards featuring Maison Margiela’s signature design. Switching to either card alters the device’s theme accordingly. Furthermore, the phone comes with a special theme and two wallpapers—Stitches and Trompe-L’oeil—displaying intricate details like handwoven stitches and the inner workings of a jacket.
Attention to Detail
The attention to detail extends to the packaging, as the retail box is wrapped in a paper-based woven book cloth fabric. Additionally, it includes a USB Type-C to Type-C cable and a 25W charger, enhancing the overall user experience.
