The collection includes functional camera holsters and crossbody bags for detail-oriented photographers
December 14, 2020: In a perfect example of fashion meets photography, Ermenegildo Zegna and Leica Camera have joined hands to offer a capsule collection of high-end camera accessories.
Designed for the modern photographer, the collaboration strengthens the link between two expressions of art and creativity. Zegna Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori, a photography enthusiast and authentic Leica lover, has always been inspired by photography as a creative language that he often visually uses as a reference for his collections.
The collaboration collection consists of PELLETESSUTA TM camera holsters for Leica Q2 and Leica M cameras; PELLETESSUTA TM protectors for Leica Q2 and Leica M cameras; functional crossbody bags called Insta-Pack, inspired by photographers’ attitude that fit almost all Compact Leica cameras (Leica V-Lux excluded) and the Leica CL with the 18mm ‘pancake’ Leica lens; carrying and wrist straps; Leica keyrings and round wallets (both for coins or the Leica Q2 lens cap) that feature luxury details and precious touch of the PELLETESSUTA TM collection, an iconic Zegna special woven nappa, result of an innovative Ermenegildo Zegna research aimed to recreate precious fabric using extremely thin strips of selected nappa leather in place of fabric yarns.
“What a wonderful addition: The creation of a Leica camera, moving images and a Zegna garment is unique and outstanding. Both brands share the same humanistic approach for values, design, sustainability, and quality,” says Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, Leica Global Director Art and Leica Galleries.
The Zegna and Leica collaboration collection is distributed globally in an exclusive selection of Zegna flagship Stores (such as New York City, Paris, London, Milan, Dubai, Shanghai, Beijing, Ginza, Isetan) as well as in 60 select Leica stores worldwide. The collection is also available online, on zegna.com and leica-camera.com.
