Just in time for the Christmas season, Leica Camera AG is putting a collection of top-quality and practical brand accessories on the market. Photography fans can make use of the items throughout their day: it begins in the morning with a favourite beverage wrapped in porcelain with an aperture scale design, before grabbing the keys kept safely on a robust keyring with embossed logo. Heading out onto the street, the baseball cap with the characteristic red appliqué combines sporty chic with understatement, while the stick umbrella elegantly accompanies any walk – even in the rain. If further touches of style are part of the plan, the collection offers a fine notebook for friends of the written word or of the quick sketch, as well as other essentials such as a water bottle, cable etui and shopping bags in exclusive Leica design. In the evenings there's a game of Poker to be won with the Leica Akademie playing cards. All in all, the day has great creative potential for enthusiasts of the legendary brand.
