When Stefano Cecchi asked me to be a cool-hunter for his new product, I immediately thought of this limited edition born from the collaboration between Leica and Hermès. First off there’s Leica, the professional camera: small and round, with a sweet, silent snap. One of my favourite photos was taken with a Leica: the famous ‘A Sailor kisses a girl in white’ by Alfred Eisenstaedt. The location: Times Square. The magazine that commissioned it: Life. Then there’s Hermès: what can I say about the brand founded in 1837 in a saddler’s shop in Paris? That it is one of the few brands that have survived history over the last two centuries without losing its distinguishing characteristics of tradition and exclusivity. Kelly, Birkin, ties, scarves and so much more. Basically, Leica M9-P by Hermès is the gift that all women would like to receive. Right, guys?
Quando Stefano Cecchi mi ha chiesto di fare da cool-hunter per il suo nuovo progetto, ho pensato subito a questa tiratura limitata nata dalla collaborazione fra Leica e Hermès. Innanzitutto c’è Leica, la macchina fotografica dei professionisti: piccola e arrotondata, dallo scatto dolce e silenzioso. Con una Leica è stata scattata una delle mie fotografie preferite: la celebre ‘A Sailor kisses a girl in white’ di Alfred Eisenstaedt. Times Square, la location. Life, la rivista che l’ha commissionata. Poi c’è Hermès: cosa dire del marchio nato nel 1837 a Parigi nella bottega di un sellaio? Che è uno dei pochi brand che ha attraversato la storia degli ultimi 2 secoli senza perdere quelle caratteristiche di artigianalità ed esclusività che la contraddistinguono da sempre. Kelly, Birkin, cravatte, foulard e tanto altro. Insomma, Leica M9-P di Hermès è il regalo che noi donne vorremmo ricevere. Vero ragazzi?

Product Description

Limited special edition: The Leica M9-P ‘Edition Hermès’
Following the Leica MP and the Leica M7, this is the third in a line of premium special editions of the M-System to be created in collaboration with the well-known Parisian house Hermès. The Leica M9-P ‘Edition Hermès’ is being offered as a strictly limited edition. The limited numbers, unique product design and premium finishing with numerous extras make this a truly special edition in every respect.Craftsmanship of the highest degree.
The Leica M9-P ‘Edition Hermès’ represents the quintessence of a long-standing tradition of master craftsmanship at both Leica and Hermès. So it is only logical that the handcrafted leather supplied by Hermès for the trim of the camera should be applied by hand. Absolute precision is the guiding principle in the construction of this masterpiece.
In collaboration with automotive designer Walter De Silva, selected features of the camera body were restyled, including the top and base plates, the shutter speed dial, the multifunction wheel and the shutter release. In addition, the frame selector lever, the accessory shoe and the Leica script on the upper face of the top plate have also been omitted to further emphasise the unique status of this limited edition. The camera is finished in silver chrome and its lens in anodised silver. In another true master stroke of the Leica factory, the two finishes are absolutely indistinguishable. All protective caps are also manufactured completely in metal.
