TRIB­UTE TO IMAG­I­NA­TION

AugustMan (Malaysia) - - Events. -

Re­mind­ing us of the power of imag­i­na­tion as well as the wri en word, Montblanc launched the Meis­ter­stuck Le Pe­tit Prince Spe­cial Edi­tion col­lec­tion at Ho­tel Stripes KL in con­junc­tion with the 75th an­niver­sary of leg­endary French writer, poet and avi­a­tor An­toine de Saint-Ex­u­pery’s clas­sic novella Le Pe­tit Prince. The se ing, in­spired by the book’s mys­ti­cal world, was di­vided into two at­mos­pheres, ‘day’ and ‘night’, where guests ex­plored the ad­ven­tures of the ti­tle char­ac­ter in the ‘day’ and the new fine writ­ing in­stru­ments un­der the ‘night’ sky. Upon ar­rival, guests were in­tro­duced to the story at the Gallery of Imag­i­na­tion, told in the form of a 2D photo wall for­mat com­ple­mented with wa­ter­coloured il­lus­tra­tions and draw­ings from the book, as well as 3D pop-up fea­tures. Guests learnt about the Prince’s ad­ven­tures and his en­counter with the fox, who plays a key role in bring­ing out the story’s main themes – close bonds and hu­man re­la­tion­ships. The char­ac­ters, along with the rose, an­other icon cen­tral to the nar­ra­tive, were also quilled onto hand-cal­ligraphed cards, for guests to take home as me­men­tos and en­cour­age­ment to add their per­sonal mes­sages and send to their loved ones. As the ‘day’ turned into

‘night’, guests were ush­ered into a space-in­spired room where Montblanc CEO Ni­co­las Baret­zki launched the new pen col­lec­tion and sub­se­quently in­vited ac­tor Lawrence Wong to pen his au­to­graph with the Spe­cial Edi­tion’s foun­tain pen on the fine sta­tionery. The col­lec­tion also in­cludes men’s ac­ces­sories, all of which fea­ture the fox promi­nently in the de­sign. Both Le Pe­tit Prince and Meis­ter­stuck are fine ex­pres­sions of high cra sman­ship, imag­i­na­tion and hu­man­ity.
