Vanity Fair Interview with Newson and Ive

You may recall that on Tuesday we brought you the story, Leica (RED) M Revealed! (which we've also updated) about the collaboration between Apple designer Sir Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson to produce the Leica (RED) M camera, set to auction on November 23, 2013 via Sotheby's. The pair have selected or made more than 40 objects for an auction to benefit Bono’s (of U2 fame) Product (RED) anti-H.I.V. campaign. Meeting with Newson and Ive, Paul Goldberger explores the shared obsession and philosophy behind everything from iPhones to jumbo-jet interiors in Vanity Fair's "Designing Men" article.

You can check out the announcement and download the update from this page. Note that you'll likely also want to grab the original v1.00 as this is more of an addition than an update!

Custom Special Edition Leica Auction

You may recall, about a year ago, shortly after the new M was announced - we ran a story about Apple designer Sir Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson working with Leica to produce a custom, one-off special edition camera. Well, the time has come for the promised (RED) auction to be done in collaboration with Bono (the lead singer of U2) and Marc Newson. The auction will be at Sotheby's in New York on November 23, 2013 - with the proceeds going towards Global Fund to help fight AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis. The auction is a followup to the 2008 (RED) auction that raised $40 million. Read more below for the flyer with details...
