FINE CAN­VAS

Fine trav­el­ling with Mont­blanc.

The Peak (Malaysia) - - Contents -

There are two ways of look­ing at trav­el­ling – hopping from one des­ti­na­tion to an­other, or a jour­ney of dis­cov­er­ing new and eye-open­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. Those who know how to reap the most of life would choose the lat­ter point of view. Mont­blanc en­riches this jour­ney by of­fer­ing the 1926 Mont­blanc Her­itage col­lec­tion – a beau­ti­ful com­pi­la­tion of finely crafted leather pieces to in­ject vin­tage style and dura­bil­ity for the in­spired trav­eller.

For the first time, Mont­blanc has cre­ated a col­lec­tion crafted in veg­etable tanned leather that’s been treated in Tus­can tra­di­tion, giv­ing each piece its rich dark brown ag­ing patina and wornin charm. The de­signs are en­veloped in earth desert tones that evoke the vin­tage el­e­gance of sa­fari travel and the ex­plo­ration of far­away lands and cul­tures. The col­lec­tion sports bright red printed lin­ing, which con­trasts with the leather ex­te­rior that was in­spired by the vi­brant fab­rics worn by the re­gal Maa­sai tribe. It’s a nos­tal­gic call to the mai­son’s tra­di­tion of leather crafts­man­ship when it first ven­tured into the world of leather in 1926, as well as a re­flec­tion of the vin­tage at­ti­tude seen in ev­ery de­sign de­tail.

The or­gan­i­cally treated leather that makes up the 1926 Mont­blanc Her­itage re­turns to one of the old­est and most in­tri­cate tan­ning pro­cesses, us­ing veg­etable tan­nins to pre­serve the nat­u­ral ap­pear­ance of the leather, while en­hanc­ing its look, touch and smell. From the Sin­gle Gus­set Brief­case to small goods such as credit card hold­ers and wal­lets, the colour changes with the pass­ing of time to fur­ther evolve the vin­tage look of each piece – be­com­ing a truly per­son­alised item to the user.
