The special edition Leica D-Lux 7 “A BATHING APE® x STASH” is an exciting new collaboration that presents the ultimate embodiment of street fashion and lifestyle. The compact camera bears the signature of New York graffiti hero, STASH – also known as Josh Franklin, and streetwear brand, A BATHING APE® (BAPE®). Both the photographer and camera represent the feeling of life on the street, carrying the synonymous camouflage print of the streetwear brand, and the distinctive monkey head, out into the world.
Photography, graffiti, and streetwear meet. Three creative icons of street culture have come together to produce a very special camera: Leica Camera from Wetzlar, graffiti artist STASH from New York City, and streetwear brand A BATHING APE® from the heart of the fashion scene in central Tokyo. This camera has been designed by STASH and is covered with the characteristic camouflage pattern associated with BAPE®. In addition, the set includes matching accessories: a specially designed camera bag, an automatically opening lens cap, and a carrying strap. The camera and accessories are identified with the artist STASH’s graffiti tag, as well as the Japanese cult brand BAPE®’s well-known monkey head logo.
The Japanese streetwear brand, A BATHING APE®, represents the attitude of the younger generation. Since 1993, its iconic monkey head logo, style, and distinctive camouflage pattern has spread across the globe from the Tokyo fashion scene. BAPE® has been part of many sensational, cross-genre collaborations with international brands and artists.
STASH, aka Josh Franklin, is considered one of the pioneers of New York’s graffiti scene, as well as an influencer in the world of urban design. His hidden message (“to stash”), together with his iconic signature, has become a brand in itself; his art and activities have contributed to the broader acceptance of graffiti culture.
