A new sporty and bold collection for the adventurous is inspired by the icy, natural beauty of the mountains’ glaciers
31st March 2022, UAE — Set high above any other European peak, the Mont Blanc is a wonder of monumental proportions and natural beauty with its captivating combination of stone, snow and ice. The mesmerizing appeal of the mountain’s glacier is the inspiration for Meisterstück Selection Glacier, a new capsule collection of bags and small accessories featuring a distinctive blue ice design. To honour the spirit of the high mountain that inspired the luxury Maison’s own brand name, the capsule is crafted from eco-sustainable materials, underscoring the importance of preserving glaciers and mountains in the future.
“This capsule could be described as icy cool, sporty and fearlessly bold with pieces created for a younger customer looking for adventure, all while being respectful of what this natural beauty represents. While it is certainly a very different look for Montblanc, the design is still firmly rooted in the brand’s DNA of the mountains and the spirit of exploration.” explains Marco Tomasetta, Montblanc Artistic Director.
Printed on nylon or leather, the distinctive glacier design gives the impression of looking through layers of ice into its deep blue depths. The motif is paired with a pressure closure used in the world of climbing and mountaineering. Functional outside pockets and closures make it easier to access personal items on the go, and add to the look of the collection. In line with the design codes of the Meisterstück line, the zip closures feature a leather pull in the shape of the nib of a Meisterstück.
Made from an environmentally friendly nylon yarn called ECONYL®, a Large Backpack and Medium Backpack are ideal companions for adventure with external organization solutions, while a Sling Bag and Chest Bag are designed to worn cross-body. A Mini Reporter, a Folio and a Zipped Pocket holding 8 credit cards feature the ice design printed on leather treated in an environmentally conscious process to reduce water usage and CO2 neutral tanning process leather.
The Meisterstück Selection Glacier leather goods offer is part of a larger cross-category collection to include writing instruments, stationary, watches and accessories to be introduced in 2022.
Meisterstück Selection Glacier Collection is available from April 2022 at Montblanc boutiques worldwide and online. For more information visit www.montblanc.com
