Samsung’s First Collaboration with French Fashion House Maison Kitsuné Unveiling the Special Edition Galaxy Watch4 and Buds2

Bringing Maison Kitsuné’s signature Fox logo and playful style into Samsung’s newest Galaxy wearables

Pre-order from 25 October on Hong Kong’s Samsung Online Shop

Oct 21. 2021

 Hong Kong – 21 October, 2021 – Samsung Electronics Hong Kong Co., Ltd. today announced the launch of two new special edition wearables in Hong Kong – the Galaxy Watch4 Maison Kitsuné Edition and the Galaxy Buds2 Maison Kitsuné Edition. This marks the debut collaboration of Samsung and French fashion house Maison Kitsuné, bringing Kitsuné’s uniquely playful Paris-meets-Tokyo aesthetics into Samsung’s wearables, combining style and technology. Pre-order for the special edition wearables are available from 25 October on Hong Kong’s Samsung Online Shop.

 

The partnership takes the iconic Maison Kitsuné Fox logo in playful and creative ways to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Buds2. Maison Kitsuné’s signature aesthetic is infused into every aspect of the Galaxy special edition wearables, from the watch straps and watch faces to the ear buds and their case. A refined new hue, Moonrock Beige, was also created specifically for the collaboration. It channels the overarching Galaxy theme while striking the perfect balance between trendy and chic.

 

“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.”

 

Timely Fashion and Smart: Galaxy Watch4 Maison Kitsuné Edition

The Galaxy Watch4 Maison Kitsuné Edition flaunts new Moonrock Beige colored straps punctuated with a charming Fox-shaped carve and delicate engravings for an eye-catching look. It also includes an additional custom Stardust Gray strap featuring the Maison Kitsuné lettering, so users can alternate looks and switch up their style. The Galaxy Watch4 Maison Kitsuné Edition also comes with Galaxy Watch4’s holistic suite of robust wellness features and One UI Watch, Samsung’s most intuitive user interface yet.

 

When Quality Style and Sound Collide: Galaxy Buds2 Maison Kitsuné Edition

The Galaxy Buds2 Maison Kitsuné Edition also comes in Moonrock Beige and are housed in a sleek Stardust Gray leather case emblazoned with a reimagined Maison Kitsuné Fox Head logo. The right ear bud features the Fox’s head, while the left ear bud showcases its tail, representing an uninterrupted journey through the Samsung Galaxy. Users can revel in rich, premium sound quality and fully immerse themselves in crisp and clear audio experiences, thanks to dynamic two-way speakers, enhanced Active Noise Cancellation and the comfortable fit of the Samsung Galaxy Buds2.

 

To take the design collaboration beyond products and craft a broader and richer overall experience, a playlist curated by the brand’s music label Kitsuné Musique was also created specifically for the partnership. On top of that, users can install an exclusive Maison Kitsuné phone theme by tagging an NFC card that comes in the box of the Galaxy Watch4 Maison Kitsuné Edition or Galaxy Buds2 Maison Kitsuné Edition case.

 

“The Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Buds2 Maison Kitsuné Edition are an exciting fusion of Samsung Galaxy’s latest wearable technology and Maison Kitsuné’s multi-faceted Art de Vivre,” said Stephanie Choi, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Marketing for Samsung Mobile. “We’re melding tech with fashion and music to let consumers enjoy better living and wellness in a playful way.”
