Leica is back with another special edition product, this one featuring its Leica CL model launched in collaboration with British designer Paul Smith. The new Leica CL ‘Edition Paul Smith’ model’s tech specs are identical to that of the regular production model. Unique to the special edition, however, are ‘one-of-a-kind’ design elements inspired by Smith’s work.
According to Leica, this is the second special edition camera launched in collaboration with Smith. The designer’s handwriting is used as the font for the phrase ‘Look and see’ located on the back of the special edition camera, joining a ‘bold blue’ top plate and the use of ‘vibrant accent colors’ on the top buttons.
Rounding out the special design is a large eye illustration on the viewfinder and stripes along the camera’s bottom edge. Leica has limited the production of its Edition Paul Smith variant to 900 sets globally; they’re shipped with the Elmarit-TL 18mm F2.8 ASPH lens and a neon rope strap featuring both Leica and Smith branding.
The Leica CL ‘Edition Paul Smith’ set can be purchased from Paul Smith retailers, Leica Stores, and Boutiques for $3,995 USD.
