Leica cameras are—as we have shown you—top of class when it comes to ease of use and image quality. But that’s only part of the reason they’ve become so beloved by so many in the creative fields. It’s that minimal, sleek, and—dare we say—Bauhausian visual ethos they’ve established over the past century has proven them as both impressive examples of technology and desirable design objects.
But everyone has to let their hair down once in a while. For that, Leica has Lenny Kravitz.
Already, the rockstar has teamed up with the company for the handsome “Correspondent” Leica M-P limited edition, a weathered variation of the popular model. Now, he’s adding a bit of flamboyance to the brand with the new M Monochrom “Drifter” Set—a M Monochrom (Typ 246) camera with a chocolatey matte-brown finish wrapped in a distinctive vegan python leatherette sourced by designer Stella McCartney. As with the “Correspondent” set, Leica and Kravitz are also offering a full travel set to accessorize with the “Drifter,” including vintage-style lens cases, pouches for the camera itself, a lush weekender-style bag, and—naturally—a vegan python-skin strap.
