Leica D-Lux 6 ‘Edition by G-Star RAW’
For the last edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo G-Star unveiled its latest crossover: Leica RAW. G-Star along with the German camera company has introduced a special edition of the Leica D-Lux series 6. The iconic Dutch photographer and video director Anton Corbijn, long term collaborator with G-Star over the years presented the first Leica RAW camera at Pitti in his role as brand ambassador.
Since its introduction in 1925 street photographers favour Leica for their outstanding qualifications and high functionality. Especially the format and compact lens of the industrial classic, enabled photographers to take pictures more easily, and spontaneously. The Leica D-Lux 6 ‘Edition by G-Star RAW’ combines these distinguishing assets with a new dot structure on the leather body trim, giving it an effective grip. The special edition comes in a brown leather case, and features an exclusive carrying strap with a matching hand strap.
The RAW Leica extends the crossover series of RAW Defender, RAW Ferry, RAW Cannondale, and Prouvé RAW, which allow the brand to playfully work with design values and materials of the denim industry. The Leica D-Lux 6 ‘Edition by G-Star RAW’ is a worldwide collectible, and is available in Leica Stores and Boutiques, and the official G-Star online store for €990,00.
After receiving his very first Leica RAW Anton Corbijn wanted to share some photography tips which are included in a video to be shared over the Internet to inspire future users of Leica Camera RAW.
