In what is perhaps the most delightfully off-kilter collaboration in recent memory, Leica, the renowned German camera manufacturer, has teamed up with A Bathing Ape® and street artist Stash to release a camera that looks as picture-perfect as the photos it snaps.
Bringing together the artisanal bent of Leica’s Wetzlar, Germany base and the frenetic energy of A Bathing Ape® and Stash’s Tokyo and New York homes, the Leica D-Lux 7 “A BATHING APE® X STASH” is all about combing tradition with youthfulness.
With all the specs holding over from Leica’s standard D-Lux 7 model—a Micro Four Thirds Sensor, 4K image quality, and full HD video capability—the “A BATHING APE® X STASH” collaboration wraps one of the photography world’s premium cameras in BAPE’s classic ABC CAMO print. Available in both black and silver finishes, further details include BAPE’s Ape Head insignia and graffiti-style tags in Stash’s distinctive aesthetic.
Coinciding with the launch of the Leica D-Lux 7 “A BATHING APE® X STASH”, a special exhibition of Stash’s photography will take place at Leica’s Los Angeles location.
