The rigour of Montblanc nods to streetwear. It is an unusual and unexpected co-lab that between Japanese brand Bape (the extended name is A Bathing Apee) and Montblanc luxury leather goods.
The limited edition collection is characterised by the typical camouflage print of the Japanese brand. It consists of a thin document case with a compartment for storing papers, a medium wallet for smaller documents and gadgets, a smaller wallet and a case for writing instruments.
Montblanc breaks the mold
It’s Montblanc as you do not expect it to be. The collection with Bape blends the disruptive and unconventional character of this brand with the fine craftsmanship and style typical of the brand owned by luxury giant Richemont. Each piece in the collection is made of Saffiano printed leather.
“This collaboration is the result of the union of two universes: a luxury maison and a street non-conformist urban brand. Although they may seem very different, they are linked by the same attention to creativity”, says Zaim Kamal, creative director of Montblanc to Highsnobiety.
