Coolpix S Owners Score Free Zac Posen Cases
For the discriminating Coolpix owner, Nikon has teamed up with popular designer Zac Posen to offer free cases for owners of S7c and S9 models.
The bags are stylish cases of soft Italian leather based upon the designer's Fall 2006 line of handbags, and are completely free with registration of the owner's model and serial number. (Click on Coolpix at the bottom of the screen).
We contacted Nikon USA's press folks today (October 17) and they assure us the limited quantity has not been depleted yet. (But, it's getting close).
Here's the transcript of Nikon's Press Release:
MELVILLE, NY (October 13, 2006) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Nikon is at the intersection of high fashion and high-technology this fall with a new partnership to provide a stunning look for style conscious and tech savvy digital camera users. Nikon and Zac Posen, House of Z, LLC, announce the creation of an Exclusive Limited Edition Zac Posen COOLPIX Camera Accessory. Nikon COOLPIX users can now carry their digital camera in a fashionable yet functional camera accessory.
"As a style-focused brand, we are constantly looking for new ways to accommodate the image-savvy consumer. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Zac Posen, a celebrated and talented designer," said Lisa Baxt, senior communications manager, for Nikon, Inc. "This partnership is based on our admiration of his creative talent, his love for Nikon and how his fashion line plays well with the stylish design of the COOLPIX Style Series cameras."
Posen's inspiration came from his current Fall 2006 clothing and hand bag collection with the look and feel of vintage camera cases. The COOLPIX Camera Accessory is made with luxurious Italian leathers which provide stylish durability and complement Posen's current collection. Posen's signature Z rivets complete the piece as a beautiful accent.
"I've partnered with Nikon because I believe two brands have synergy and both appeal to customers with high expectations for quality and design," said Posen. "Working closely with Nikon has given me the opportunity to create a spectacular accessory for an equally stunning digital camera."
The Zac Posen COOLPIX Camera Accessory will be available beginning October 13th on StunningNikon.com. The limited time, exclusive product will be available to Nikon COOLPIX users only. The accessory was designed for the new line-up of Nikon's COOLPIX Style series digital cameras, including the new COOLPIX S7c and S9. These cameras are stylish, edgy and combine high-quality imaging performance with impressive photo sharing technology, like the S7c's ability to email images from the camera.
