Montblanc presented Meisterstück Selection Sfumato, painted leather goods with a contemporary appeal, at an event hosted at 3 Olaf Street in London’s West End quarter.

The “sfumato” technique – Pioneered by the great Leonardo Da Vinci – produces imperceptible transitions between colours and tones by using fine shading and delicate graduation between colours.

Montblanc master craftsmen have developed a new collection by applying the sfumato effect to the finest and softest calfskin to give it an elegant patina that mirrors the luxurious qualities of the leather, and enhances its softness with a shadowed three-dimensional appearance. Available in rich brown, flannel and blue navy, and made of the highest quality leather embellished with a newly designed M-shaped leather clasp, each piece is designed as a functional and enduring lifelong companion.

In the world of fine craftsmanship, we have found that by revisiting century-old techniques and ideas, new innovations can come to life,” explains Jérôme Lambert, Montblanc International CEO. “With the Sfumato Collection, our artisans have creatively borrowed a technique pioneered by the great masters to create timeless leather goods that have the distinctive qualities of a work-of-art. Because each piece of leather individually painted with the greatest passion and dedication, they are masterpieces in themselves”.

The Montblanc Meisterstück Sfumato Collection is available in Montblanc boutiques worldwide from June 2015.
