REWRIT­ING TRA­DI­TIONS

Mont­blanc takes lit­er­ary in­spi­ra­tion from The Lit­tle Prince

The Peak (Hong Kong) - - Contents -

Gone are the days when tra­di­tional crafts­man­ship and clas­sic de­signs alone can sat­isfy col­lec­tors' as­pi­ra­tion for ex­quis­ite prod­ucts. Mont­blanc, for one, took cues from The Lit­tle Prince, An­toine de Saint-ex­upéry's beloved lit­er­ary char­ac­ter, in his lat­est de­but. As a cel­e­bra­tion of the renowned French au­thor, his imag­i­na­tive lit­er­ary worlds, and the whim­si­cal tools of his trade, the lux­ury brand has cre­ated a se­ries of fan­ci­ful pieces.

Tak­ing cen­ter stage in the col­lec­tion is un­ques­tion­ably the hand­some hand­crafted pens. Dressed in a shade of navy with the lac­quer bar­rel and cap em­bossed with a fox face pat­tern, the Meis­ter­stück Le Petit Prince Soli­taire Le­grand Foun­tain Pen is a clas­sic in­stru­ment with a mis­chievous twist.

The Meis­ter­stück Le Petit Prince Soli­taire Doué Clas­sique Foun­tain Pen, on the other hand, fea­tures a sim­pler de­sign that sees a plain deep blue lac­quer bar­rel with the plat­inum-coated metal cap milled with a fox face pat­tern. Each of the cap tops re­veals a sen­tence from the Le Petit Prince book and is crowned with the iconic em­blem.
