The Montblanc Muses writing instrument collection was created to celebrate the powerful women who have left an enduring impact on culture and society. Each edition of this collection is a meticulous celebration of the unique characteristics and extraordinary legacies of these muses. The latest addition, the Montblanc Muses Maria Callas Special Edition, pays homage to the iconic opera diva, Maria Callas, known as ‘La Divina.’
Maria Callas, born in 1923 in New York City to Greek parents, emerged as the ultimate operatic diva with her deeply moving voice, elegant style, and dramatic instinct. The Montblanc Muses Maria Callas Special Edition is a visual ode to her talent, passion, and charisma that elevated her to fame on major opera stages worldwide.
The turquoise resin used in the cap and barrel of the writing instrument, a color dear to Callas, symbolizes her vibrant personality. The slender, elegant silhouette of the pen mirrors Maria Callas’ graceful beauty, capturing the essence of her stage presence. The platinum-coated cone features a laurel leaf pattern, paying homage to one of Callas’ signature roles in Bellini’s Norma. The embossed signature of the soprano adds a personal touch, commemorating her iconic image as the druid priestess.
Maria Callas, known for her vocal prowess and captivating looks, was not only ‘La Callas’ on stage but also a style icon. The handcrafted, rhodium-coated solid gold nib reflects her distinctive cat eyes and dark brows, along with the endearing nickname ‘La Divina.’ This instrument is not just a pen; it’s a wearable piece of art that echoes the diva’s charm.
The attention to detail extends to the clip stone, a nod to Callas’ love for jewelry and flowers. The petal-shaped stone recalls a rose named after Callas in 1965, while its deep turquoise shade honors her Greek roots and the color of the Aegean Sea. This exquisite detail adds a touch of luxury, reflecting Maria Callas’ appreciation for the finer things in life.
Despite her withdrawal from the stage, Maria Callas remained a symbol of elegance until her death in 1977. The Montblanc Muses Maria Callas Special Edition immortalizes her exceptional artistry over 45 years after her passing. It is not just a writing instrument; it’s a symbol of an unforgettable life and an enduring legacy.
In a world that continues to be enchanted by ‘La Divina,’ this special edition writing instrument is a timeless tribute to Maria Callas. The Montblanc Muses Maria Callas Special Edition will be available worldwide in Montblanc boutiques and online from October 2023, inviting enthusiasts to embrace the enduring spirit of an operatic legend.
