Leica M9-P Edition Hermès

by agnes s.

waaaay too expensive but I got to give some credit to the almost obseessive attention to the detail and also the mesmerizing artcraft

Yesterday Leica presented their new limited edition sets created in collaboration with Hermès. The exclusive M9-P “Edition Hermès” and the M9-P “Edition Hermès – Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas incorporate “Veau Swift” calfskin leather in “ocre,” supplied by Hermès for the leathering of the silver-chromed version of the Leica M9-P camera as well as the shoulder strap included in the set. A beautiful collaboration in a celebration of the friendship and collaboration between Jean-Louis Dumas, the former president of Hermès, who died in May 2010, and Leica Camera AG. The set comes with three lenses, an exclusive hand-finished Hermès camera bag, the first Leica camera bag ever to have been created by Hermès, as well as a portfolio of 200 black-and-white images all captured by Jean-Louis Dumas with his Leica M camera. Watch the making of the camera, the packaging and the bag.
