What happens when Alexander Wang asks a group of friends, stylists, and photographers to scribble images, patterns, photos, or whatever tickles their fancy on their Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphones?

Wang’s highly-anticipated collaboration with Samsung: the Wallie gym sack. The bag will be revealed on Wednesday, August 21, and go on sale in “key markets around the world and online,” Women’s Wear Daily is reporting. The collaboration is in an effort to raise money for Art Start, a charity that uses the arts to nurture the creative talents of “art-risk” children and youth, according to Samsung.

The lambskin backpack has leather corners with black and gray print and will retail for $550.

“The abstract print really captures the energy of New York City,” Wang told WWD. “This collaboration is a great example of how technology and style can come together in an unexpected but really meaningful way.”

If $550 is a bit out of your price range, fret not. Mr. Wang is having a sample sale in New York this week. Bring your credit card. And your sneakers—things got ugly at Wang’s last bargain event.
