Just as previously teased by the company itself, today Samsung has officially announced the Thom Browne Editions for the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Watch6.
The new, dressed up Galaxy Z Fold5 is « an homage to Thom Browne’s signature design elements with its black pebble leather and grosgrain details », Samsung says in its official press release.
The exterior features Thom Browne’s signature red, white, and blue stripes, a fabric texture etched on the back glass, an accentuating black frame and gold hinge, and gold rings around the camera lenses. The limited edition also comes with two distinct leather pouch cases as well as a special edition of the S Pen. The packaging boasts the iconic Thom Browne briefcase.
The Galaxy Watch6 gets a « graceful gold-tone body », a special watch face, and the Thom Browne logo engraved on the side. The Thom Browne red, white, and blue colors are applied to the buckle, and you get two leather straps: one with black pebble leather and the other with red, white, and blue striped leather. The colors are also used on the 25W travel adapter for the phone, the coin-style watch charger, and an exclusive USB-C to USB-C cable made from fabric.
Thom Browne said:
This continued collaboration with Samsung represents an evolution of what we’ve been creating together for years. Once again, we want to show that a perfect blend of top quality, innovative design and a classic aesthetic can become a powerful form of self-expression. I believe this Galaxy Z Fold5 Thom Browne Edition is the ultimate example of turning advanced technology into a bold statement.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Watch6 Thom Browne Editions will become available from Samsung’s online store « in limited numbers » from September 12 in select markets including Korea.
