Caran d'Ache Paul Smith 849 Ballpoint Pen - Cobalt / Emerald (Special Edition)
Ever further – that’s where Paul Smith and Caran d’Ache want to go by reinventing their collaboration. Renewal characterised by boldness and innovation, always at the forefront of creativity. For this 4th partnership, the iconic English designer dresses the icon of Swiss writing in new clothes. Six 849s in two-tone combinations. Original, daring.
Between Sir Paul Smith, the internationally renowned English designer, and Caran d’Ache, the Swiss company overflowing with creativity, the meeting was natural, the admiration mutual and the partnership long-lasting. He is passionate about colour and draws inspiration from anything and everything. Art, music, daily life. He gives the classic a modern twist and can’t do without the writing instruments produced by the Geneva-based company, which bring his sketches and notes to life.
To breathe life into six 849s with color combinations reflecting their DNA, Paul Smith & Caran d’Ache have pushed the boundaries back even further, paying homage to the designer’s unexpected combinations as seen in the lining of his suits and the top-stitching of his shirts. The combinations surprise, contrast, clash, coordinate. A graphic look that reinterprets the designer’s famous stripes. The pairings are flashy or tender, unexpected, sharply contrasting, powerful and deep. And pastel too. No bias, just a desire to be feminine, masculine, unisex. To be attractive to everyone and something that everyone can make their own.
