Buy it now: Leica Sofort instant camera



Leica Sofort instant camera

It turns out Mr DRG and I were both thinking of getting each other the new Leica Sofort instant camera for Christmas. Clearly a sign we should buy one and share it. This is the camera for the person who has everything – rather unnecessary but lots of fun and very good-looking.

I tried one out last night at a Mr Porter Christmas event. If you’ve ever tried a Polaroid or a Fujifilm instant camera, you’ll know how addictive this is. In the age of camera phones it’s even exotic, which I realise sounds preposterous coming from a child of the seventies eighties. You can either use Fuji Instax Mini film or special Leica film which has a different quality to the pictures.

These have just hit the shops and are available from Nordstrom, Harrison, The Photographers’ Gallery (around £229), and the Leica shops*. And soon Harrods, Jessops, Mr Porter and Net-a-Porter. Read more here.

Quote of the day: Lauren Sherman



great bowery founder matthew moneypenny

“What is truly at the crux of Great Bowery’s strategy is pushing its clients to diversify their skills and build bigger personal brands. Just as an actress is no longer just an actress, but often a fragrance campaign model, a fashion designer and a Snapchat star, a photographer can no longer simply stand behind a camera.” (more…)



Retail round up: first look at Apple’s new retail vision for Regent Street



Apple Regent Street

Call me old fashioned but I love a physical store. But the role of the high street is shifting from purely transactional to a multi-functional experiential space. Apple is spearheading this change with its stores; having unveiled its prototype San Francisco store in May, it has now unveiled its vision for Apple Regent Street. (more…)
