Montblanc expands its Muses collection of writing instruments with Montblanc Muses Marilyn Monroe Special Edition, that pays homage to Marilyn Monroe, the ultimate symbol of glamour and femininity. The collection includes a fountain pen, ballpoint and rollerball and is available from October 2017 in Montblanc boutiques worldwide.
Every design detail of the Montblanc Muses Marilyn Monroe Special Edition reflects actresse’s signature style. The shape of the writing instrument is inspired by the 4-inch heels Marilyn Monroe favored. The color of the cap and barrel of the writing instrument resembles her red lipstick, created especially for the movie star. The rich red of the resin is paired with fittings coated in champagne gold to create a glamorous look in honour of a woman who never failed to steal the show with her electrifying presence. The slanted cap top is decorated with the Montblanc emblem in champagne tone gold-coated. Among the few fashion accessories she wore was a single row of Akoya pearls given to her by her husband Joe DiMaggio whom she was married to for just 274 days. A single pearl adorns the pen’s clip as a reference to the passionate yet brief all-American romance between the Hollywood goddess and the handsome baseball legend, one of the great love stories of the era.
Marylin Monroe famously sang “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” and in reference to the famous film song, the cone of the Special Edition writing instrument is engraved with diamond shapes alongside the signature of the style icon. The Au585 champagne tone gold-coated nib of the fountain pen features an engraved portrait of the legendary actress. The traditionally rounded heart hole of the nib is shaped as an actual “ heart” – a very first in the Muses collection – to highlight the symbolic of Monroe’s incomparable femininity.
