Leica Camera presents the M9-P “Edition Hermès” and the M9-P “Edition Hermès – Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas,” two new limited edition sets created in collaboration with the Parisian house.
These exclusive offerings 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. The camera also sports a special design, created in collaboration with the automotive designer Walter de’Silva. In addition to a dedicated serial number, each camera also bears one of a series of consecutive limited-edition numbers.
The Leica M9-P “Edition Hermés” is a limited edition of 300 and includes a silver-anodized Leica Summilux-M 50 mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens.
The Leica M9-P “Edition Hermès – Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas” is a limited edition of 100 that includes three lenses: a Leica Summicron-M 28 mm f/ 2 ASPH., a Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. and a Leica APO-Summicron-M 90 mm f/ 2 ASPH. It also comes accompanied by 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.
Also announced today were the new Leica M Monochrom, X2 and V-Lux 40 cameras.
