Leica CL "Edition Paul Smith"

Classic with a Twist

In 2012 Leica and Paul Smith excited the world with a unique cooperation of a camera brand and a fashion brand. Until this day fans of both worlds are still asking for the strictly limited Leica "Edition Paul Smith".

Paul Smith graced the classic Leica CL with his personal "twist“ - outcome is again, a unique edition: A discrete colourful camera, a special Paul Smith rope strap, a cleaning cloth with a photo collage of heritage Leica cameras complemented by the extraordinary compact 18mm TL lens - all packed in a superior box individualized by Paul Smith Design.

The set comprises a Leica CL camera with a bold blue top plate, vibrant accent colors on its top buttons and striped across the camera's bottom, and unique design elements with a hand-drawn sketched look. Atop the viewfinder is an illustration of a large eye, while "look and see" is found on the camera's rear in Paul Smith's distinctive handwriting along with his signature. These artistic highlights are reference to Paul's famous quote, "many people look, but often they don't see." This edition is limited to 900 sets worldwide.
