Leica—the famed German manufacturer of premium photography gear—sold its products through third-party retailers or at its own showrooms and galleries for much of its illustrious history. However, transformative shifts in the retail sector and mounting pressure from longtime competitors and new market entrants forced the brand to adapt its approach.

How we reached a new generation of customers


Since opening its first location in 2004, contemporary womenswear brand LF Stores enjoyed a nationwide presence, anchored by flagship stores in exclusive retail meccas such as New York’s Fifth Avenue and L.A.’s Larchmont Village.

With changes in shopping habits and market conditions threatening the long-term viability of its brick-and-mortar model, LF Stores looked to Kobe Media to create and implement a social media strategy that would ease the brand’s transition to a pure-play online retailer.
