Fashion and photography collide as Leica teams up with Rag & bone founder for a stealth camera
Leica Camera and avid photographer rag & bone CEO, Founder and Creative Director Marcus Wainwright collaborate on a special edition M Monochrom (Typ 246) in an all-black ‘Stealth Edition.’
“For me the Leica M system personifies the pursuit of perfection in an object designed for a singular purpose. Inspired by that, I was aiming to try and further refine and perfect the M Monochrom – an almost impossible task – by distilling it to its purest form and highlighting the stealth nature of the camera and lens,”
The camera body is covered in a matte black finish with little to no branding, but the real kicker is the dark fluorescent paint that adds glow-in-the-dark accents to the camera body and the lens. The lens that’s included is a Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH with the same matte black finish. Both the camera and lens are included together and is limited to 125 pieces.
The ‘Stealth Edition’ Leica M Monochrom will be available on March 20th.
