As a tribute to the power of imagination, Montblanc is releasing a special edition Meisterstück Le Petit Prince, inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s masterpiece. The design elements of the special edition collection are based on Saint-Exupéry’s hand-drawn illustrations and capture the book’s message that transmitting one’s dreams and values to others is what makes one’s life meaningful. The first series of Meisterstück Le Petit Prince edition has launched in April 2018 and features the characters of the young prince and the fox while subsequent editions will highlight other heroes from Le Petit Prince.
The cap and barrel of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition are made of night-blue precious resin that resembles the deep blue sky of the universe around the prince. The milled cap is decorated with a fox face pattern, with platinum-coated fittings contrasting with the deep blue of the writing instrument. The little prince tells the pilot he will be able to hear his laugh any time simply by looking at the stars and remembering. As a tribute to that, a golden star adorns the clip of this edition. The delicate character of Le Petit Prince is immortalised along with his friend the fox, engraved on the handcrafted 14K rhodium-plated nib. A sentence from the original novel has been laser engraved into the crown of the writing instrument available as a Fountain Pen, Roller Ball and Ballpoint Pen: “Créer des liens? … Tu seras pour moi unique au monde” (“To establish ties? … To me, you will be unique in all the world.”)
Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Doué Classique Edition features the deep blue color of the lacquer barrel and a platinum-coated cap elegantly decorated with engravings of the fox pattern. The shiny surface of the platinum is repeated on the metal cone, cap and the pen clip adorned with the yellow star.
Available as a Ballpoint Pen, a Roller Ball and a Fountain Pen with an 18K bi-colour nib embellished with the outline of the Little Prince and the fox. The fox pattern covers both the cap and barrel of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Solitaire, engraved on the deep blue lacquer. Contrasting with the blue, the fittings are crafted from platinum-coated metal. At the summit of the edition, the Montblanc emblem is encircled by the fox’s words about human bonds, taken from St Exupéry’s novel.
Montblanc has also created special ink and refills inspired by the fox character in a dark orange color 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 Meisterstück Le Petit Prince 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.
