Alexander Wang Collaborates With Samsung + {Watch This!!!}

Alexander Wang is teaming up with Samsung to design a limited edition bag. With all that Wang has going on {designing his debut collection for Balenciaga, his first Paris show, and his normal collection}, how could one of this season's most talked-about designers find any time to do anything else? According to WWD, this project probably won't be adding too much to his workload, seeing that the bag will be essentially created by other people.

{The bag will be} inspired by sketches and photos by a group of influencers selected by the designer. The group of stylists, photographers and friends will use the Samsung Galaxy Note II to produce the images, which will serve as a base for Wang to create a print that will be used on the bag. Explains WWD 
This bag sounds like it will be a very interesting piece. The bag will be sold at select Alexander Wang boutiques and the brand’s e-commerce site this summer. What's even better is that proceeds from the bag's sales will benefit ArtStart, a New York City charity that aims to nurture the creative talents of at-risk children and youths. 

“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,” said Wang. “This collaboration represents a new way that technology and style can come together. And, through a concerted effort, I am happy to be a part of supporting such a great charity as ArtStart that embraces creativity and art in a way that can change lives.”

On an unrelated, funnier note, check out this spoof video set in Wang's store. It stars MADtv's Bon Qui Qui with cameos by Alessandra Ambrosio, Natasha Lyonne, A$AP Rocky and Simon Doonan.
