MSI has announced a collaboration with Fragment Design, a streetwear brand led by Hiroshi Fujiwara. It’s launched a Hiroshi Fujiwara Limited Edition version of the Creator Z16 that we first saw a few months ago.
Fragment Design is a street fashion project established by Hiroshi Fujiwara, an ‘icon of street fashion.’ The brand has previously collaborated with the likes of Maserati, Louis Vuitton, Nike, Tag Heuer, Jordan, Bvlgari and Beats. MSI tells us:
Fragment Design views co-branding as the core of its communicative approach to the audience and injects elements of street culture and subculture successfully in different types of products, making it the icon of trending fashion. As the world’s only laptop recognized by Fragment Design, the MSI Creator Z16 Hiroshi Fujiwara Limited Edition presents the beauty of perfect melding, through the “Black on Black” concept that blends the sharp black double lightning logo and the Stellar Black aluminium body of the laptop.
The MSI Creator Z16 Hiroshi Fujiwara Limited Edition comes with laser-etched logos. The lightning pattern on the lid, “Symbolizes the audacity of Fragment Design that dares to establish an example to street fashion. The emblem of the collaboration rests on the lower-right part of the keyboard side, showcasing the partnership dedicated to bringing out premium enjoyment of beauty. Even on the bottom side, the unignorable lightning logo embellishes and presents an impeccable visual identity. The beauty of this product is displayed through a CNC-milled unibody with a delicate tone, presenting a silky smooth texture bringing out the pure elegance of the laptop.” [sic]
Despite the thinness of the laptop, the Creator Z16 Hiroshi Fujiwara Limited Edition sports an Intel 11th Gen i9 CPU and Nvidia RTX 30 series GPU. There’s also a 16:10 screen powered by AUO AmLED and a mini-LED backlit keyboard.
Only 3000 units of the MSI Creator Z16 Hiroshi Fujiwara Limited Edition will be sold. We’ll review it on High Performance Laptops as soon as we’re able.
