German-based camera maker Leica Camera AG has teamed up with luxury Parisian fashion house Hermès to create a limited edition camera due to be released just in time for the Christmas holidays.
The limited edition ‘LEICA M7 Edition Hermès' traditional film camera comes bound in luxurious Hermès calf leather and sports silver chrome detailing. Users can choose from one of two distinct colors - ‘Ètoupe' brown or Hermès' signature orange.
The series is limited to 100 cameras in each color with each camera carrying an individual number ranging from 1/200 to 200/200.
The LEICA M7 Camera is equipped with a matching, specially crafted, silver anodized LEICA SUMMILUX-M 34 mm f/1.4 ASPH. wide-angle lens and has a LEICAVIT M rapid film winder finished in silver chrome.
The camera, manual and all accessories come packaged in a silk-lined case.
This is the second time LEICA have teamed up with Hermès to create a limited edition line of cameras. In 2003 the two companies collaborated on the much sought-after ‘LEICA MP Edition Hermès'.
The camera will be available in mid-December for a price of 9,500€.
