An icon of writing culture, the Montblanc Meisterstück is a gifting favourite among Montblanc products, a precious treasure passed down from one generation to another. Montblanc is releasing a special edition Meisterstück inspired by the much-loved literary character of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince.
Launching in April 2018, the first series of Montblanc Meisterstück Le Petit Prince edition features the inspiring and tender characters of the young prince and the fox who enlightens him about the importance of close bonds and human relationships, revealing the core wisdom learned from his own life’s experiences. Subsequent editions will highlight other characters from Le Petit Prince and the powerful messages they carry including the aviator and the planet.
Montblanc has also created special ink and refills inspired by the fox character in a dark orange colour reminiscent of the fox’s orange fur. A leather notebook completes the writing experience, bound in fine Saffiano leather featuring a fox scenery print on its cover inspired by the author’s illustrations. The story of Le Petit Prince has inspired a selection of men’s accessories including a pair of round stainless steel cufflinks with a deep blue lacquer and fox face design centre, a stainless steel and blue lacquer money clip and a contemporary men’s woven leather bracelet with a stainless steel clasp decorated with a yellow star.
Filled with meaning and symbolism, the new special edition reaffirms Montblanc’s belief that writing is a gift, one that is passed from one generation to the other with a positive message, just like the ideas, dreams and thoughts that Le Petit Prince shares with the world around him.
