Samsung’s newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note5, continue to prove the company’s commitment to blending technology that pushes boundaries with design that is both beautiful and functional. Likewise, Samsung continues to partner with fashion designers and luxury brands to offer users even more ways to express their style.
Part one of this three-part series is a photo essay introducing Samsung’s collaboration with Opening Ceremony, the innovative global fashion label that challenges the rules of style. Opening Ceremony has been at the forefront of cutting edge design since it was established in 2002.
The Opening Ceremony for Samsung accessory line-up, which includes “Stylish Cover” and “Battery Pack”, brings the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note5 to life through a playful mix of patterns and colors from its Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
The collection prints in colorways exclusive to Samsung, making these bold colors and dazzling prints accessible to anyone looking to transform their smartphone into a fashion accessory. One design features an abstract cheetah print comprised of warm orange, peach and pink tones, with yellow vertical strokes offset by navy. Another complementary design features an abstract curtain floral print, this time rendered in cool tones of varying blues, pink and apricot.
“We wanted to create designs that complement and enhance the Samsung devices and their sleek curves, while infusing an Opening Ceremony feel with favorite prints from our Spring 2016 runway collection. We love the idea of personalizing mobile devices to reflect individual style,” said Carol Lim, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer behind Opening Ceremony.
To celebrate the two brands’ collaboration on the accessory line-up, they hosted an exclusive event called “OC Charged Up, Powered by Samsung Galaxy” on Tuesday, October 6 to coincide with Paris Fashion Week.
With Opening Ceremony garnering huge interest in fashion circles, and Samsung leading the world with innovative technologies, the collaboration between the two brands gained a great deal of attention from the public. The unique welcome message—a giant “Hello” created out of Opening Ceremony for Samsung cases—truly spoke volumes, reminding guests of the extraordinary nature of both Samsung and OC.
For this exclusive dinner, Samsung and Opening Ceremony worked with Mission Chinese Executive Chef, Angela Dimayuga, who flew in from New York to prepare a unique tasting menu for guests. Newly designed OC cases and battery packs were also on display all around the event venue. In the corner sat a demonstration zone where guests could try the new products from Samsung, and it was the newly-released Samsung smart watch, the Gear S2, which gained the most attention from event attendees.
The Opening Ceremony for Samsung collection launches at Samsung and Opening Ceremony retail channels in select countries beginning October 2015.
