The latest special edition of the Leica Q2 is launched today. The Leica Q2 “Dawn” by Seal is limited to 500 cameras, every one of which is claimed to be unique because of the individual differences in the woven-fabric cover.
Identical mechanically and optically to the standard Q2, the new special is covered with an “iridescent traditional Kimono fabric” in black and gold. Manufactured by HOOSOO in Kyoto, the fabric shows scar-like structures when touched. The Leica logo on the front of the camera is in black.
The edition number and a discreet Seal signature are engraved under the display glass.
The package includes a rope strap with a leather sleeve bearing a handwritten line from the lyric of the British singer’s Kiss from a Rose. Also included is a scarf bearing the same lyric, manufactured by Rag ’n Bone of New York.
The Leica Q2 “Dawn” by Seal edition will cost £5,500 and is available from today.
