Tattoo Cover Edition for Samsung
Montblanc and Samsung exalt technology by hand with a Montblanc Tattoo cover edition
This new collection is the latest iteration of Samsung and Montblanc’s partnership initiated a year ago, when the two brands introduced “fine writing into the digital world” through the unveiling of the luxury Maison´s first Screenwriter collections. To celebrate the launch of Samsung latest Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 Edge +, Montblanc unveiled a 100 piece limited smartphone covers edition featuring handmade tattoo. While initiated millenniums ago, Tattoo artworks never lost their appeal nor their relevance throughout the centuries, and resonate as a perfect blend of modernism and tradition. It best mirrors the collaboration between Montblanc and Samsung, the perfect combination between century old savoir faire and cutting edge technology. Montblanc Tattoo covers are available at selected Samsung online shop only.
Montblanc ink as the link between Montblanc Heritage in writing and tattoo craftsmanship
“Montblanc´s origins stand in writing with ink on paper, tattoo is about writing with ink on skin. Fusing these two gestures using Montblanc’s leather competence as a canvas was a natural step for the Maison to create this collection” said Zaim Kamal, Montblanc creative director. Made from carefully selected artisanal tanned leather, cut and crafted by Montblanc leather artisans in Italy, every single piece has been individually hand-tattooed by London based tattoo artist Mo Coppoletta, using genuine Montblanc ink. Inspired by the image of an air balloon, the tattoo design pays tribute to the pioneering spirit of Montblanc founders who, more than a century ago, travelled across oceans and continents to explore new writing technics and present Montblanc writing instruments to the world.
