Mont Blanc may be better known for its pens, but it is slowly but surely carving a niche in the luxury accessories market. Its latest launch, the Urban Spirit travel goods collection, drives home the point.
The limited-edition collection, recently unveiled in Paris, includes totes, duffel bags, briefcases, and passport cases in streamlined designs (the range also includes architectural men’s cuff links), but it is their hip new Urban Spirit backpack that truly embodies the spirit of today’s independent traveller – and takes the brand into the 21st century in the process. Finely crafted using quality materials in the Mont Blanc tradition, the fun, functional backpacks are designed with personalised storm covers featuring public transport maps of some of the world’s greatest cities.
How better to epitomise modern, urban explorations?
