BAPE® ABC CAMO and APE HEAD with STASH signature style artist tag
A BATHING APE®︎ has released a special LEICA digital camera, the D-LUX7, in collaboration with New York-based graffiti artist STASH.
Brooklyn-based artist STASH is a pioneer of graffiti art since the 1980s. The model released this time incorporates BAPE®︎'s highly popular ABC CAMO, APE HEAD and STASH's signature style artist tag on the LEICA D-LUX 7, making it a true embodiment of street x art.
The camera body has the same specs as the regular LEICA D-Lux 7. With 17 million effective pixels, this high-spec model has a large 4/3-type image sensor, a large-aperture zoom lens with a maximum aperture of 1.7-2.8 that covers a focal length equivalent to 24-75 mm in 35 mm format, and optical image stabilisation.
In addition to the camera body, it comes with a carrying strap, pouch and a lens cap that opens and closes automatically upon lens ejection. It's available in black and silver, with the black version available exclusively for Leica and the silver version available exclusively for A BATHING APE®.
"LEICA D-LUX 7 "A BATHING APE® x STASH" Silver is now available at official A BATHING APE®︎ stockists and BAPE.COM WEB STORE, and Black will be available from 27 August at Leica stores, Leica Online Store and Leica boutiques.
