Samsung Unveils Limited Galaxy Watch4, Galaxy Buds2 Collaboration With Maison Kitsuné
Samsung has announced a special collaboration with multifaceted Paris-meets-Tokyo lifestyle brand Maison Kitsuné, introducing a limited-edition Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Buds2 wearables.
The Galaxy Watch4 Maison Kitsuné Edition incorporates the Watch 4’s suite of wellness features and intuitive UI, with added flair courtesy of the independent fashion house. The 40mm digital dial and Maison Kitsuné branded stainless steel case is secured by a Moonrock Beige strap decorated with Fox-shaped holes and delicate engravings. A custom Stardust Gray strap featuring Maison Kitsuné cursive lettering is also available.
The 2nd generation Galaxy Buds2 Maison Kitsuné Edition feature the same soothing Moonrock Beige hues housed in a sleek Stardust Gray leather case. Variations of the Maison Kitsuné fox with galaxy sparkle motifs are found on the buds, case, inner housing, and charging cable. “The right earbud features the Fox’s head, while the left earbud showcases its tail, meant to represent an uninterrupted journey through the Samsung Galaxy,” reads the Samsung press release.
To celebrate the collaboration, music label Kitsuné Musique curated a special playlist for those who purchase either of the collaborative products. The playlist is accessible through a special viewer link incorporated within the exclusive Maison Kitsuné lock screen.
“We are ecstatic to be bringing our distinct style and iconic Fox logo to Samsung Galaxy wearable designs,” said Maison Kitsuné co-founder Gildas Loaëc. “We loved the idea of the Maison Kitsuné Fox traversing the galaxy and we had a lot of fun coming up with the new Moonrock Beige color and other subtle motifs and design elements that illustrate the Fox’s journey through time and space.”
Samsung says the $250 USD Galaxy Buds 2 Maison Kitsuné Edition and the $400 Galaxy Watch4 Maison Kitsuné Edition will both be sold in a new moonrock beige hue starting today.
As usual, the company charges a premium for its products that are designed in collaboration with fancy fashion houses. Take the original Galaxy Watch4, for example, which launched at $250 USD.
