Leica D-Lux 7 Special Edition «A Bathing Ape® X Stash» & More Live News


Street – for photographers the high art of capturing people’s lives as naturally and at the same time as pointedly as possible. Street photography is a very direct form of reportage, to which Leica feels particularly attached. In a way, she holds up a mirror to society, sometimes amused, sometimes critical or revealing. The same goes for other art forms that capture the vibes of the street: street wear and street art. Leica is now taking this triad into account with a limited special model of a compact camera: the Leica D-Lux 7 «A Bathing Ape® X Stash». The black models are sold by Leica, other cameras with a silver body are sold exclusively by A Bathing Ape®.

Characteristic of the special model is the typical camouflage look of the streetwear brand Bape® in green as well as the brand’s identifying feature, the monkey head. The camera also bears Stash’s Wildstyle lettering.

The streetwear brand Bape® (A Bathing Ape®) stands for the lifestyle of a young generation. She wears her street style in the trendy camouflage look from the Tokyo scene out into the world. From the Asian metropolis we move to the North American continent, to New York, where the street art legend, the pioneer of the graffiti scene Stash, aka Josh Franklin, brought his iconic art to the public from the anonymity of the subway tunnels and paved the way for a completely new type of art. And finally Wetzlar: This place stands for the art of photo engineering like no other and brings together the creativity of the two metropolises through photography. Both art forms are documented and preserved with photography, and with the limited compact camera Leica D-Lux 7 «A Bathing Ape® X Stash» they also come together haptically.

“When I started with graffiti in the early 1980s, the term street art didn’t exist yet. Only later, as we emerged from the tunnels and train stations, did we become much more visible. Documenting my art through photography has always played a role in my creativity. With the introduction of digital cameras, I got my first Leica,” recalls Stash, who sees many parallels between the three art forms. «It’s all visual, the colors, the shapes, the freedom of expression. I think it’s mostly youth driven and there’s so much creativity between these mediums that one helps the other to complete the story.” When designing the limited special edition of the Leica D-Lux 7, the New York artist incorporated the graphic form of expression for which Bape® is famous as well as his own personal signature.

Technically, the limited edition of the Leica D-Lux 7 “A Bathing Ape® X Stash” corresponds to the series model, which has a large Micro Four Thirds sensor and a fast zoom lens with optical image stabilization (1:1.7–2.8/24–75mm 35mm equivalent). For the 17-megapixel resolution, the lens uses a central area of ​​the sensor, which originally had a resolution of 21 million pixels, which increases the image quality even further. In addition to high-resolution photos, the sensor also delivers 4K 30p or Full HD 60p videos. It comes with an additional carrying strap, a specially designed camera pouch and an auto-opening lens cap. The price of the black Leica D-Lux 7 “A Bathing Ape® X Stash” in Switzerland is CHF 2,190, including VAT. At the launch of the limited Leica D-Lux 7, the Leica Store Los Angeles is presenting a selection of photographs by Stash in a special exhibition.

A Bathing Ape®

In the heart of Tokyo, one of the world’s leading fashion capitals, Nowhere Co., Ltd. settled. The company strives to bring Japanese fashion culture to the world. Since the brand was founded in 1993, it has been a streetwear icon for more than 28 years. To this day, iconic design items, original patterns and expressive brands such as «Ape Head» «Bape® Camo», «Bape Sta™», «Shark Hoodie», «Baby Milo®» etc. are among them. The collection has now expanded to include men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and is sold in all stores in Japan, as well as in the US, UK, France, China and various Asian countries. The company has also established successful collaborations with established international brands and renowned artists. These are valued as cross-genre and eclectic, and are not limited to just fashion and apparel categories.


«Stash» (Josh Franklin) is considered one of the pioneers of the graffiti scene in New York and an influencer in the world of urban design. His idea of ​​integrating graphic elements and lettering into commercial product design resonated with the general public and ensured the rise of graffiti culture from the shadows of the subway tunnels into the light of public acceptance. His hidden (to stash) messages and the iconic signature have become a brand of their own, which has immortalized itself in high-profile collaborations with the big brands of the streetwear cosmos. In search of new forms of expression, the photo enthusiast Stash meets Leica: the collaboration is another milestone for the street artist in manifesting his concept of capturing the fleeting moment.
