Tattoo Artwork inspired by the Maison’s 110th anniversary
With the unveiling of Secret Adornment, Montblanc offers a new form of personalisation that uses the inner part of a Sfumato briefcase flap as a canvas for artistic expression. On the outside, the blue briefcase exudes classic elegance through the patina of the Sfumato leather, but on the inside hidden from sight, a secret piece of contemporary art awaits. Only visible on the inner part of Montblanc briefcases, the Secret Adornment reveals the finest tattoo craftsmanship using extravagant yet refined artistry to create a very personal and intimate experience for its owner.
Through the virtuosity of tattoo art, Montblanc gives an unexpected edge to the classical elegance of Sfumato briefcases as well as offering the opportunity to carry a piece of art all along the way as a precious daily companion. Limited to just 30 pieces, every briefcase will feature the initials of the owner integrated into the hand tattooed design. With ink as a bond between the world of fine writing and the world of tattooing, Montblanc renewed its collaboration with one of the most talented tattoo artists of his generation, Mo Coppoletta. The Italian artist based in London individually hand-etched every leather piece using genuine Montblanc ink.
