COLLABORATION

Paul Smith for Leica

This second collaboration with the acclaimed German camera manufacturer adapts the colours from Paul’s custom Land Rover Defender.

For this new photographic partnership, Paul has added colourful British eccentricity to a precision piece of German technology.

When he was asked to create a colour scheme for Leica’s advanced CL digital camera, Paul was inspired by his custom Land Rover Defender from 2016. That unique vehicle featured a custom paint job of 27 individual colours, which was Paul’s way of celebrating the Defender’s diverse history as a service vehicle in the British emergency services and military, plus its reputation as a rural workhorse.

Now, that same colour palette adds unique character to Leica’s compact digital camera. This special collaboration is limited to 900 cameras. Each will also be individually numbered and features custom illustrations from Paul on the camera body.

A unique eye sketch is placed above the viewfinder, while 'look and see’, engraved in Paul’s distinctive handwriting, is found above the digital display screen. This references Paul’s famous quote: "many people look, but often they don’t see".

Mirroring Paul’s approach to design, the Leica CL is the perfect meeting of tradition and modernity, as iconic design is matched by advanced technical standards.

The 24 megapixel sensor, fast autofocus, high resolution electronic EyeRes? viewfinder and ability to shoot up to 10 frames per second mean you will never miss a shot. When paired with Leica’s wide-angle Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH. lens, the Leica CL is a compact yet high-performance camera for any photographer who appreciates versatility, outstanding image quality and intuitive handling.

Finally, thanks to the easy connection to the Leica FOTOS App, images can be transferred directly from the camera to a smartphone. For frequent Instagram users like Paul, this feature makes all the difference.

Each camera will come in a specially designed presentation box that includes the Leica CL camera body and Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 ASPH. Lens, a rope strap with Paul Smith and Leica branding, a custom dust cloth featuring a photo print of Paul’s vintage cameras, and a certificate of authentication.
