To celebrate and promote this exclusive collab, FARFETCH created an intimate London photo shoot with model, actress and artist Aweng Chuol, and filmmaker and model Arnaud Lin. Both appear in selfies with their Contax T2 cameras demonstrating that they are the only accessory anyone needs to have.

Ronojoy Dam, Global Director of Brand & Culture at FARFETCH said: “Regardless of current trends, the Contax T2's status as the cult point-and-shoot camera for over 30 years is based on its exceptional performance and results. After all, personal photographs are one of life's greatest luxuries. Some say it's impossible to improve on a classic, but MAD proved otherwise with their visionary watch and jewelry customization – and they've done it again exquisitely well with this limited-edition version of the camera.”

The T2 first entered the market in 1990 and is a cult classic; an extremely solid construction with simple ergonomics. The beautiful, solid metal chassis is made in Japan, along with the renowned Carl Zeiss T* Sonnar 2.8/38 multi-coated lens, consisting of 5 elements in 5 groups and easy-to-use features. While offering full automation including Autofocus and Program AE, the Contax T2 was one of the most intuitive cameras of its time, featuring Aperture Priority AE selection, +/-2EV exposure compensation in ½ EV steps, and manual focus on a dial. of ways. The viewfinder provided back in the 90s provided impressive shutter speed and focus lock confirmation.

The limited-edition collection will be available on October 26, exclusively from FARFETCH.
