With a price point of a whopping Php 189,990, you would expect people would think twice before shelling out on the Thom Browne Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 and that the unit would probably sit a week or so before they fly off the shelves. NOPE. Made publicly available 10:00 AM on 12 September, this limited-edition of Samsung’s best Galaxy Fold yet sold out in about just under a day.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 Thom Browne Edition features Samsung’s latest foldable technology, combined with Thom Browne’s signature design elements. Aside from the iconic Thom Browne stripe patterns, the kit also includes two leather pouch cases and a special edition S Pen.
But perhaps what sealed the deal for how remarkable the entire collection is the inclusion of a special Thom Browne Galaxy Watch6 with pristine gold bezels and two leather straps: one with black pebble leather and the other with red, white and blue striped leather (all classic Thom Browne stuff). These colors are also used on the 25W travel adapter, the coin-style watch charger and an exclusive fabric USB-C to USB-C cable — all brimming with Thom Browne’s trademark influence.
“We are definitely excited for the response that we saw for the Galaxy Z Fold5 Thom Browne edition. The partnership between Samsung and Thom Browne started because of our strong belief that it is possible to draw upon the similarities between fashion and technology to create a smartphone that introduced an entirely new design identity. We are very proud to have finally launched this limited-edition collection in the Philippines for the first time,” says Blue Avelino, Head of Mobile Experience for Samsung Electronics Philippines.
Samsung and Thom Browne first collaborated back in 2020 with his take on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Soon after that he has been involved with the brand for future iterations of Galaxy Z Flips and Galaxy Z Folds. This marriage of luxury and innovation help craft the enigmatic partnership that has brought this limited-edition Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 here.
And while, sadly, the units are sold out already, the fact that the Philippines is now getting limited-edition collabs like these means the world is paying attention to the tech Pinoy’s purchasing power — and their fervent support for Samsung.
