Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Front Run­ners - April – 2018 THE LAT­EST IN LUX­URY By CE­LINE YAP

The Mont­blanc High Artistry Her­itage Meta­mor­pho­sis Limited Edi­tion shows off the lux­ury mai­son’s unique flair in craft­ing the best writ­ing in­stru­ments money can buy. This ul­tra-lux­u­ri­ous ob­jet d’art is the first by Mont­blanc to come with a de­tach­able jew­ellery or­na­ment, hence the name Meta­mor­pho­sis.

Made in the form of a spi­der, this be­jew­elled fea­ture rests on the cap of the pen. But a quick re­assem­ble al­lows the eight-legged crea­ture to be worn as a ban­gle, tiepin or brooch. Sim­ply com­bine it with the three jew­ellery pieces in­cluded in the set: one each in white gold with di­a­monds, cham­pagne gold with ru­bies and red gold with blue sap­phires.

Fur­ther vari­a­tions limited to five, 10 and 88 pieces are also avail­able. Each writ­ing in­stru­ment will be de­liv­ered with an ex­clu­sively de­signed leather-bound notebook made at Mont­blanc’s tra­di­tional pel­let­te­ria in Florence.

Spi­der- themed writ­ing in­stru­ments have been present in Mont­blanc’s reper­toire since the 1920s. But none have been so cre­atively con­ceived as the High Artistry Her­itage Meta­mor­pho­sis Limited Edi­tion. www.mont­blanc.com ≠

CPre­pare to be as­tounded by Nu­ra­phone’s in­tu­ition.

ould this be an au­dio­phile’s dream come true: head­phones that au­to­mat­i­cally learn and adapt to your unique hear­ing pro­file, and al­low you to ad­just your level of im­mer­sion? The peo­ple be­hind the Nu­ra­phone head­phones ( US$399, RM1,560) cer­tainly seem to think so. Pow­ered by a built-in, self-learn­ing en­gine that shifts its sound to match your hear­ing sys­tem, you won’t hear mu­sic so much as feel it. An over-ear tac­tile driver that de­liv­ers sound through your skin is com­bined with an in-ear speaker that thrives on melodic tones, en­sur­ing you get the best of both worlds.
