The Diana World Tour is Landing in San Francisco

Big news, San Francisco! The Diana World Tour has arrived in the United States, and we’re the first stop this year! Come see the traveling Detrich Collection of original Diana clones, as well as some customized clones by local SF artists. And don’t miss the kickoff for the party of the summer! Check out the details after the jump!

We love the Diana F+, and so do you! Obviously, the San Francisco team was thrilled to hear that we would get to host the Diana World Tour this month!

We’re seriously looking forward to finally seeing the famous Detrich Collection in person.

However, we’re also excited to show you the works of some of our local celebrities! We’ve sought out and tracked down some serious artists and had them create some mind-blowing customized Diana clones to contribute to the exhibition. Photographs and descriptions can’t do them justice; You’re just going to have to come by and see them yourself. We also handed our cameras to prominent local photographers, and they were truly able to create magic with the Diana’s plastic lens. Come and see their images in or Vignettes gallery on the second floor!

Hope to see you at the launch party on May 10th from 6 – 10pm!
