Leica’s collab with Bape brings us a camo-clad camera

The latest Leica collab for its D-Lux 7 draws inspiration from streetwear and graffiti.

Leica

Leica’s latest collab is an ambitious crossover between street photography, streetwear and street art. Working with Bape and American graffiti artist, Stash, Leica is dropping two versions of its limited-edition D-Lux 7.

If Bape is part of the collab, you know there’s going to be some camo involved. This time, the signature camo is wrapped around the body of the Leica and actually suits the compact camera quite well.

Black edition

Leica threw a Bape logo on the top plate, Stash’s tag near the shutter button, and Bape’s text logo onto the auto lens cap for its black-finish edition. This one will be sold through Leica exclusively.

Silver finish

The silver edition is being sold through Bape, featuring more of Stash’s tags throughout the camera and lens cap. But both versions highlight that iconic camo that Bape has become synonymous with.

- Ability to record up to 4K30fps and full-HD 60fps video
