Leica Camera is pleased to announce the Leica Q “Nikki Sixx Edition”, a limited edition release of the rock star’s own full-frame compact camera. This camera celebrates Nikki’s dedication to photography and the role Leica plays in this creative outlet for Nikki Sixx.
The Leica Q “Nikki Sixx Edition” is a rock-star take on Sixx’s beloved Leica Q camera featuring a black snakeskin finish on leatherette with a laser-engraved Nikki Sixx signature on the top plate. The special serial numbers, starting from 01-28 to 28-28 will be engraved on the top plate. The Leica Q will also be accompanied by a black Leica leather wrist strap, an autographed copy of the 10th anniversary edition of Sixx’s memoir, “The Heroin Diaries” and a black DSPTCH braided shoulder strap.
The Leica Q “Nikki Sixx Edition” will be limited to an exclusive 28 units, a number which has special significance for Sixx as he overdosed on heroin at that age and was clinically dead for several minutes. This was the turning point that led him to commence his path of recovery through his commitment to photography.
The Leica Q “Nikki Sixx Edition” will be unveiled on October 4 at the Leica Store LA alongside Sixx’s debut photographic exhibition, “Conversations with Angels” at the Leica Gallery LA. All 28 units of this limited edition Leica Q will be sold exclusively at Leica Stores and Boutiques in North America and will be available for preorder from October 4, 2017.
