Montblanc Urban Spirit Launch

June 27, 2016 - Events, Jewellery, Fashion

Montblanc opened the doors to the Montblanc Urban Spirit Gallery in Paris for one night and Publishing Group Deluxe was invited. The exhibition space was transformed to an urban setting to launch the new Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection, which is a brand new collection full of the finest leatherware that reminds us of an urban discoverer.


For the urban traveller constantly seeking to discover new horizons, Montblanc introduces the Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection, a brand new leather collection defined by its innovative functionality. With streamlined designs, optimal comfort and smart storage solutions, each piece is thoughtfully crafted to fit in with the lifestyles of those on the go. At the office, on the way to meetings, at the gym or on the road or in the air to a distant destination, the stylish yet robust pieces have the versatility to be companions for both business and leisure, and everything in between. From small leather accessories to larger leather goods, the 22 pieces that make up Montblanc’s latest leather collection provide at the same time reliability and security.

The ultimate companion for the independent traveller’s daily needs, every functional detail of the Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection is designed to meet the needs of this modern-day pioneer. Made of soft-to-the-touch black Italian leather with a slightly waxy feel and a sophisticated matt effect, the high performance collection is the result of the highest level of craftsmanship nurtured at the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence, where century-old traditions and skills bring the spirit of innovation to life in every one of the meticulously crafted pieces. For the first time ever, the traditional Montblanc emblem has been replaced with a brand new metal edge along the corner of the small leather goods pieces, a signature design feature of Urban Spirit.

Because every day is an unexpected adventure, the Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection brings functionality to the modern traveller. Simple and elegant, every piece is a highly crafted leather companion built to last beautifully. The Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection is available from September 2016 at Montblanc boutiques worldwide. From city streets to the open road, the urban gentleman rider is on a perpetual voyage of discovery. For the  21st century nomad, travelling across geographies and without boundaries in search of new experiences in faraway destinations or in his city, Montblanc has created two, masculine and contemporary companions for his daily  motorcycle adventures. Both helmets are  inspired by the simplicity of the racing helmets from the 1970s with a modern edge. A design combining  tactile Urban Spirit plain with  the perforated leather of racing gloves. Moulded on a shell with a refracting coating. A full-face helmet provides a protective black visor , while the other one is an open face helmet with a mirrored visor.

The wonderful trip with Montblanc was rounded off with a wonderful stay at The Peninsula Hotel in Paris. Perfectly situated on Avenue Kléber, The Peninsula resides in the heart of Paris within walking distance of the city’s most famous monuments, museums and luxury shopping districts. Located in a late 19th century Haussmanian building, the hotel has been meticulously restored and discreetly modernised enabling guests to experience the ultimate in 21st century style and convenience. Especially the L’Oiseau Blanc restaurant, bar and terrace, completes the already perfect ambiance with stunning views over the capital’s most iconic monuments.

Thank you Montblanc for a wonderful experience at the Gallery and an incredible visit to Paris.
