Samsung has announced a new fashion collaboration revolving around the Galaxy Z Flip 3, and it’s rather unusual compared to the limited edition variants and accessories we usually get. Samsung has partnered with Australia’s most beloved brand of jeans, Dr Denim, and has just announced a new pair of limited-run jeans that embrace and celebrate the unique folding form factor of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. They come with a special pocket.
The main advantage of a folding phone is the reduced footprint. Thanks to its clamshell design, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is one of the most compact smartphones ever created — at least when folded shut.
Dr Denim apparently views the Galaxy Z Flip 3 as a trendsetter that could negate the benefits of having large, uncomfortable rectangular pants pockets. The fashion house applied this philosophy to a new pair of Z-labeled jeans, and it came up with a design that features a small pocket. It’s sized perfectly for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 to fit in.

The Z Flip Pocket Denim jeans cost $1,499 a pair. It may seem like they cost more than the phone itself, but that’s not the case. The $1,499 price includes a pair of Z Flip Pocket Denim jeans as well as the Galaxy Z Flip 3 to place in its unique pocket.
Dr Denim will manufacture only 450 pairs of Z Flip Pocket Denim jeans, but who knows?! Perhaps the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will redefine fashion trends and mark the end of baggy pockets.
Samsung’s fashion collaborations for foldables have so far led to the release of limited-edition versions of said devices — such as the Thom Browne Edition. But as foldable phones become more popular, Samsung could start approaching fashion collabs in different creative ways.
