One of the most striking and sought-after collections in recent times is the famous collaboration between S.T. Dupont, dedicated to high-end accessories, and Montecristo, the brand of cigars and cigars. And that's how the creation that would celebrate S.T. Dupont's 150th anniversary began a legacy.
S.T. Dupont Montecristo
Being the most prestigious and best-selling brand in its field, Montecristo took its name from the famous novel written by Alexandre Dumas: The Count of Monte Cristo. So, in turn, this is the object of the collection they have created in conjunction with S.T. Dupont, dedicating three models to the novel. It stops at various points in the story, capturing it in the pieces through spectacular color gradations that represent the character's journey.
Each part of the collection, divided into three moments, consists of three lighters, a fountain pen, a rollerball pen Line D, cigar cutter, ashtray and a pair of cufflinks. Each creation is handmade by six master craftsmen, and both the packaging and the ashtrays feature the three symbols of each model along with a sea in which the ship of the story's protagonist would have sailed. They also feature the emblematic logos of the Montecristo brand as well as S.T. Dupont.
THE THREE PARTS
The first part of the trilogy is "Le Crépuscule," which, with its colors, tells the beginning of Edmond Dantès' story when he still lives in an idyllic state, full of promises, hopes, and ambition. The color gradation from yellow to black, passing through orange and brown, all in warm shades, portrays the clarity of light until the day ends, accompanying the unexpected twist that will change the protagonist's life. Over them, a dim sun and a moon that begins to take center stage are depicted.
The second model is "La Nuit," The Night. With its distinctive design, it transitions from the coldest yellow to a faint purple combined with deep blue, ultimately reaching a solid and deep black. It reflects the period in Dantès' life when he plunges into the darkest moments, enduring betrayal, captivity, and the greatest injustices and disappointments, as well as demonstrating resilience and perseverance. The symbol of a waning crescent moon (in the northern hemisphere), evoking the mysterious light it emits, is featured in each piece of this model.
Closing the trilogy, as well as Edmond's journey, is "L’Aurore," The Dawn. It represents the victorious conclusion of this story, a return to serenity, compassion, and forgiveness. It starts with warm yellow, reddish-orange, brown, and finally deep blue, presenting the sunrise pattern in each of its pieces. The symbol representing it is a sun, standing alone for the first time, illuminating the ship in the case of the ashtray, which would have belonged to the character who would have been the captain.
Whether you're passionate about luxury accessories or literature, you shouldn't miss the collection born from the collaboration between S.T. Dupont and Montecristo.
