It’s no secret that here at Vanish, we really like Leica. We’re especially stoked on the new “Edition Paul Smith” ($3,995) launched late last week. This unique camera is definitely an on-trend colorway with a special rope strap and cleaning cloth designed by the legendary fashion icon Paul Smith.  The set is comprised of a Leica CL camera with a  blue top plate, vibrant accent colors , and unique design elements with a hand-drawn sketched look. Above the viewfinder are the words “look and see” in Paul Smith’s distinctive handwriting. These artistic highlights are reference to Paul’s famous quote, “many people look, but often they don’t see.” This edition is limited to 900 sets worldwide.Specifications:
