Leica Camera AG

Leica Camera AG presents a new addition to the Leica rangefinder system – the Leica M (Typ 262) ‘red anodized finish’ in a special limited edition. The unique feature of this camera edition is its colour scheme. The top plate and the baseplate of the Leica M (Typ 262) are machined from solid aluminium and anodized in red. This lends the camera a unique look that perfectly matches the colour of the special edition of the Leica Summicron-M 50 mm f/2 ASPH. lens released in 2016. The exclusiveness of this striking edition is further underlined by the strictly limited number of examples: As was the case with the lens, the Leica M (Typ 262) ‘red anodized finish’ edition is also strictly limited to 100 examples of the camera for the world market, each with a unique serial number. The Leica M (Typ 262) ‘red anodized finish’ is available from today.

The technical specifications of the special edition camera are identical to those of the serial production model of the Leica M (Typ 262). With its concentration on the functions essential for photography and an intuitive handling concept, it is the perfect camera for experiencing the pure fascination of Leica M-Photography. The Leica M (Typ 262) embodies all the essential advantages of the Leica rangefinder system, while consciously declining to explore the limits of the technically possible. Its full-frame CMOS sensor is conceived exclusively for rangefinder photography and intentionally does without additional features such as Live View and video recording capability. Its 24-megapixel resolution ensures exceptional imaging quality and extreme sensitivity to light, which also makes the Leica M (Typ 262) a perfect camera for photography in available light situations. At the same time, the camera’s Maestro processor guarantees fast processing of captured images and immediate readiness to shoot.

The handling concept of the Leica M (Typ 262) fulfils everything that discriminating photographers expect from a Leica M. All controls and functions are logically and ergonomically located exactly where the photographer expects them to be. Just like every other M, it allows fast manual focusing with the coupled rangefinder and the focusing ring of the lens. It also offers a choice of manual or automatic aperture priority exposure. Due to the omission of Live-View and video capability, the menu is extremely lean and consists of only two pages. This ensures that all setting options are rapidly accessible at all times. This also applies to white balance. In the case of the M (Typ 262), this is set by a dedicated button on the back of the camera.

OMEGA NATO STRAP


Same watch – different look

Now that you’re switching to your summer wardrobe, why not go all the way and give your timepiece a cool new look for the warmer months?

With OMEGA’s fantastic selection of “NATO” straps, giving your watch a summer makeover couldn’t be easier – or more affordable.

What is a “NATO” strap?

OMEGA’s “NATO” straps evolved from the leather and canvas straps used by British pilots, navigators and army personnel during World War Two. For safety reasons, wristwatches did not use removable spring bars to secure their straps. Their fixed bars, often soldered, were less likely to break than spring bars so there was less chance of losing the strap in conflict situations.

Eight “NATO” straps to choose from

Take your pick!

There are three 5-stripe fabric straps with stainless steel buckles and fitted keepers; three nylon fabric straps with grey, orange or red border; a brown Novonappa leather strap; and an all-black coated nylon fabric strap with fitted black keepers and polished buckle.

Try your new look online

If you’d like to see how your watch looks with a new “NATO” strap, our website has a virtual function that lets you mix and match with ease. You can experiment with different combinations without having to break out the strap changing tool. Why not have some fun and see what happens? You may discover a look that’s as individual as you are. If you’d rather see how your new “NATO” strap looks on the wrist, OMEGA’s boutique staff will be happy to help.

 

Strathberry | Tricolour Twist

Defined by both stylish practicality and high-quality construction at an attainable price, Strathberry has pioneered a new category in luxury leather goods.

Strathberry takes it one step further by introducing tricolour combinations for its classic tote silhouette with bar closure. Consisting of vibrant mint, marigold, and peach hues offset by contrasting palettes, each bag draws inspiration from nature and adds an elegant and subtle twist to colourblocking.

CHLOE | INTRODUCING THE FAYE DAY

Available in boutiques from August, the Faye Day Bag is a welcome everyday addition to the Faye collection. Worn cross-body, on the shoulder, or carried, the Faye Day has extra roominess and a subtle utilitarian spirit via the addition of pockets and hardware. The signature ring loop and hanging chain maintain its feminine allure. Available in two sizes, medium or small, Faye Day comes in a variety of finishes and animations including Tan, Blush Nude, Black and Motty Grey. In August, a Cloudy Blue edition will be available exclusively via WeChat, while the Carbon Brown colour will be exclusive to chloe.com.

The Faye Family

A model of laidback elegance with its streamlined silhouette and clean graphic lines, the Faye has emerged as one of Chloé’s most beloved and iconic bags. Inspired by the structure of a man’s briefcase and reimagined in the feminine form of an over-sized clutch with delicate details, the Faye embraces the artful play on boy-meets-girl so distinct to Chloé. Defined by its soft rectangular shape, roomy accordion body, jewel-like hardware and nonchalant allure, the Faye collection has been expanded to include a more complete offering including a backpack and day bag — each style as independent and audacious as the women who carry them. While each Chloé bag has its own personality, all share the Maison’s sense of carefree cool and modern femininity.

Faye: The Clutch-Inspired Classic

It takes no less than eight pieces to construct the Faye bag’s unique and deceptively spacious accordion-pleat body, which offers enough room for all the essentials. Whether filled to the brim or not, the silhouette retains its sleek form and is gracefully enhanced by a long slim shoulder strap that has the carefree appeal of working cross-body. Elegant details abound, like the supple suede calfskin flap that meets the smooth and soft calfskin body and the metal hardware – the snap-hook, oversized ring and chain in silver and pale gold that offer a nod to 90s jewellery and modern refinement.

The Faye Backpack

Taking the effortless spirit of the Faye further, the Faye backpack retains the bag’s graceful essence but adds versatility to the mix. Worn many ways, a slender leather handle allows the bag to be carried in the hand in the crook of the arm, or slung over the shoulder for the Chloé girl on the go. Available in medium or miniature size and cast in a variety of colours and embellishments, the backpack translates the Maison’s carefree 70’s spirit to today.

The new Basket Bucket and Mini Basket Bucket are the epitome of Cafuné’s design philosophy in making functional handbags that are still polished and refined; while the new Camber Clutch is a handheld rendition of its Camber Satchel. The emphasis is strong on the hardware details – as seen in the Edge Crossbody and Cube Tote – plus  a playful element that creates free movement on a defined geometric form.

Defined by clean lines and signature bar closure, the collection represents pure beauty and grace.

The uniquely designed Nano Tote in Vanilla/Taupe takes you on a journey to the Old Town. Old but gold, the bag complements a classic street-style with a slight vintage touch to it.

Bright and bold, the Strathberry Nano Tote in Ruby always stands out.

The bi-colour design perfectly blends in with the raw beauty of the countryside, with distinct colours stunningly contrast the vibrancy of the city to the tranquillity of wilderness.
