The increasing demands of our fast-paced city life has inspired Montblanc to create a new range of leather goods that combines both ancestral craftsmanship with modern high performance. If you are looking for a sharp and hard-wearing range of leather bags and accessories to take you through your daily urban adventure, then Montblanc’s NEW Extreme Collection is perfect for you!
When I first laid my eyes on the press imagery, my first impression for the Extreme Collection is that they seemed to me like F1 cars but in the luxury leather goods context.
The innovative woven carbon structure pattern in a subtle matte and shiny finish pushes beyond expectations of what innovative techniques can be achieved with calf leathers. Montblanc has done amazing to create a unique leather pattern that not only looked appealing but is also hardwearing with abrasion resistant, water and heat repellant capabilities. All thanks to a unique dressing and finishing technique that provide every piece with additional protection against the elements. Truly befitting the inspiration behind the collection, the Montblanc Extreme Collection pushes the boundaries of technical innovation to achieve new heights in durability and performance.
Other noteworthy details include hardware made of light weighted black anodized aluminium, carefully selected Italian cowhide linings and all tastefully branded with a classic Montblanc emblem featured in the centre of a contemporary black ring.
Take your pick from the extensive range in the collection; from Single Gusset Briefcase, Document Case, Messenger Bag, Rucksack, Tote Bag, Envelope Bag, North South Bag, Clutch Bag to small leather goods of tablet cases (suited for Samsung and Apple), Samsung Note 4 phone covers, wallets and card cases.
But the creme de la creme of the extreme collection has to be the new Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC. At this 10th anniversary of the Timewalker collection, Montblanc launches a new version of this fan favourite timepiece with a “DLC” (for “diamond-like carbon” material) treatment to ensure the utmost toughness of the stainless steel case’s surface. Miniscule glass spherules are blasted under high pressure to give the steel a microscopic texture to which the DLC coating can almost inseparably adhere, thus producing a fine matte finish on the surface. The wrist strap is a technological marvel too with its black “Vulcarboné” cautchouc construction that is highly resistant to breakage, abrasion, water, and fire. And these are just some of the many hi-tech innovations that is imbued onto the manufacturing and design of this amazing timepiece. In short, I am a huge fan for its ultra functionality and masculine styling. Definitely suited for the discerning individual who can both rough it out in an actual jungle or the fast paced concrete cityscapes in any part of the world.
The Montblanc Extreme Collection will be available in stores come September 2014. For further information, visit www.montblanc.com.
