Created to capture the elegance of Princess Grace of Monaco, the latest collection from Montblanc has surprised everyone. Featuring soft ivory hues, the writing utensils in this new line highlight delicate details that remind us of the natural beauty of Grace Kelly, an extraordinary woman who dazzled with her subtlety, even when she wore the most spectacular gowns. Each of the pieces in this series includes a rhombus pattern inspired by the coat of arms of the Principality of Monaco. Their clips are decorated with mother of pearl and pink topaz while the Montblanc logo is made with black resin. This collection is available in Montblanc boutiques worldwide, with a price of $765.
Symphony and tradition
The Camus label is internationally recognized not only for its excellent cognac, See here Cognac: The Elixir of French Greatness, but also for the audacious cases designed for their best bottles. The most recent presentation of the delightful brandy comes in a pedestal with multiple compartments, which contain five of their most emblematic bottles, known collectively as the Masterpiece Collection. Entirely conceived by the design team at Camus, it replicates the appearance of a black piano resting on just one metal leg. The piece was made in France by dedicated artisans, who spent about 300 hours working to shape and finish the unique case. According to firm ambassador Frédéric Dezauzier, the piano was chosen as the inspiration because the story of the legendary maison is tantamount to a symphony composed through 150 years of excellence and tradition. ■
