ALEXANDER’S GALAXY: Alexander Wang is joining forces with Samsung to create a limited-edition bag inspired by sketches and photos by a group of influencers selected by the designer. The group of stylists, photographers and friends will use the Samsung Galaxy Note II to produce the images, which will serve as a base for Wang to create a print that will be used on the bag.

The bag will hit select Alexander Wang boutiques and the brand’s e-commerce site this summer. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to ArtStart, a New York City charity that aims to nurture the creative talents of at-risk children and youths.

“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 Wang. “This collaboration represents a new way that technology and style can come together. And, through a concerted effort, I am happy to be a part of supporting such a great charity as ArtStart that embraces creativity and art in a way that can change lives.”
