Montblanc: Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition

Writing is like dancing, it requires a lot of dedication, patience, a composed yet a concentrated mind to perfect the art of strokes, without seeking the spotlight. You have to learn to listen, feel, watch and trust yourself. Writing is a solo profession, working all the time to an accuracy of fractions of a millimetre. Gradually, you will develop a special intuition to write thousands of characters by hand and ensuring the nib glides smoothly across the page, expressing thoughts and ideas, transcending dreams and making unsung songs heard.

This April, the German luxury brand Montblanc is releasing the Special Edition of the new Meisterstück Le Petit Prince, to bring together the heritage of timeless gifting favourite and the cultural influence of a great literary mind. Inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s poetic tale, the new Meisterstück Le Petit Prince celebrates the powerful symbol of education and the importance of transmitting ideas to create lasting memories and bonds.

The German luxury brand has a long tradition of supporting influential art projects and recognising talents who have devoted their time, passion and energy to perfect their craft. In this special edition Meisterstück, the writing instrument is available in three types: ballpoint pen, roller ball and the fountain pen features an 18k bi-colour nib, showing the outline of the Little Prince and the fox embellishment.

The special edition Meisterstück is inspired by a much-loved book with editions in more than 250 languages and dialects, that tells a story about “a young prince and the fox who enlightens him about the importance of close bonds and human relationships, revealing the core wisdom learned from his own life’s experiences.”


To complete the writing experience, Montblanc has also introduced a selection of men’s accessories inspired by Meisterstück Le Petit Prince, such as leather notebook made of fine Saffino leather with a fox scenery illustration on the cover, a pair of round stainless steel cufflinks and money clip in stainless steel, both finished in deep blue lacquer with a fox face design. The blue leather bracelet features Montblanc’s signature engraving on stainless steel, juxtaposed with a yellow star at the centre.
