Alexander Wang and Samsung Created a $550 Gym Sack

For anyone living with mountains of cash, the logical response might be to shell out $550 for a single drawstring bag to take to the gym. Thanks to a "crowd-sourced" collaboration between Samsung and designer Alexander Wang,  a limited-edition unisex "sack" made out of lambskin and covered in a special black-and-gray print culled from sketches, images, and doodles — which Wang's creative circle of friends drew on their (free) Samsung devices — will be available for purchase this month. While the bag's price tag may seem a bit steep to people who are accustomed to the low cost of similarly shaped nylon sacks, the Wang x Samsung Wallie does serve a greater purpose. Not only does it stylishly merge the gap between fashion and tech, sales will also raise funds for Art Start, a charity that uses the arts to nurture the talents of at-risk children and youth. The choice is yours.
