Alexander Wang launches bag with Samsung

alexander wang samsung wallie bag

The New York City based fashion designer worked with the South Korean technology firm on a special new lambskin bag which used the power of the crowd to source the designs.

Alexander Wang channeled the ‘collective inspiration’ of a select group of Samsung smartphone users for his latest collection. Called the ‘Wallie’, the gym sac has a drawstring closure, reinforced leather corners, and a black and gray print on the lambskin finish.

The bag’s abstract print was produced by Wang by combining different images created using Galaxy Note II smartphones by a group of his close friends, stylists, photographers, and others.

“The abstract print really captures the energy of New York City,” the designer explained. “This collaboration is a great example of how technology and style can come together in an unexpected but really meaningful way.”

The bag is available in select locations from this month, and proceeds from the sale of the $550 bag will go towards the Art Start charity, which funds art programs for children and young people.


Is this the world’s most expensive TV?

Samsung UHD S9

South Korean technological giant Samsung has revealed a giant flagship ultra-high-definition range of TVs that will retail at $40,000.

At 85 inches from corner to corner, it is a huge screen for a huge price but Samsung has also confirmed that the UN85S9 is about to be joined by two bigger brothers — a 95-inch and a 110-inch model, both of which will be more expensive still.

Samsung claims thatthe UN85S9 is packed full of revolutionary new features, chief among which is the ability to take high definition content and upscale it seamlessly into ultra-high definition to fill the vast screen. It can also pump out 120 watts of sound for that cinema-like experience.

The UN85S9 is an ultra-high definition TV, meaning that it displays images at a resolution four times greater (measured horizontally) than existing high definition content — such as a Blu-ray disc.

Like many other companies that offer similarly technologically advanced TVs, Samsung’s range of UHD TVs can stretch and rescale HD content to fill the screen while boosting its native definition enough to enhance the viewing experience. However true ultra-high definition content is very difficult to come by at the moment. Netflix hopes that it can start streaming this type of content within the next two years, and Japan has set itself a deadline of the 2014 World Cup Final as its date for starting UHD broadcasts.

Samsung to an extent is brushing over this particular problem — who would buy a games console for which no games existed? — not simply by highlighting the set’s upscaling technology but by pointing to a myriad of other features the TV boasts. These include gesture and voice controls and access to Samsung Hub, a servive that allows users to access multimedia content from Samsung.

Still even with a price tag of $40,000 Samsung will probably find interest. In January, LG reported that its comparatively cheap $22,000 80-inch UHDTV had seen sharp sales of 300 units in South Korea.

Furthermore, Digitimes research suggests that by the end of 2014, global sales of UHDTVs could pass the 10 million mark, despite their high price tags, humongous screens and lack of native content.

Alexander Wang Teams Up With Samsung

New York-based designer Alexander Wang  has teamed up with tech giant Samsung to produce a limited-edition handbag.

Wang has enlisted a group of influential stylists, photographers and friends who will use the Samsung Galaxy Note II to produce images which will serve as a source of inspiration for a print for the handbag.

“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 Alexander Wang.

The edgy accessory will be available in select Alexander Wang boutiques as well as the brand’s website from this summer. Proceeds will be donated to ArtStart, an award-winning, nationally-recognized charity that uses the arts to nurture the creative talents of at-risk children and youth.
