Guided by a pioneering spirit since 1906, Montblanc revolutionised the culture of writing with breakthrough innovations. The Maison continues to push boundaries and evolve the expression of fine craftsmanship across each of its product categories.

Montblanc recognises that ‘design is in the detail’, crafting utopian pieces – a true balance of timeless style and the greatest functionality. To celebrate the importance of design, Montblanc welcomes you during the month of September to explore the finest European craftsmanship with the M-SERIES – a variety of events which will be hosted in Montblanc boutiques across London. Touching on the areas of retail design, product design and technology the events will be a chance to engage with key Montblanc experts who have been instrumental in bringing to life the Maison’s heritage and values through new collections and original concepts.
