Leica has released the M9-P ‘Edition Hermès’, created in collaboration with the well-known Parisian fashion house, Hermès. It is being offered as a strictly limited edition, available in a choice of two different sets. Hermès supplied the exclusive leather trim for the camera, which is finished in silver chrome. 300 cameras have been produced for the first set, which features a silver anodized lens.
100 cameras have been made for set 2, which is a memorial to the friendship between the former president of Hermès, Jean-Louis Dumas, and Leica. This includes three lenses, a hand-crafted Hermès camera bag, and a book with a selection of 200 black-and-white images captured by Jean-Louis Dumas with his Leica M-camera.
