Montblanc takes literary inspiration from The Little Prince
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.
