In February of this year, Montblanc auctioned off 12 portraits of celebrity ladies including Eva Longoria and Christina Ricci for their “Signature for Good” campaign. Photographed by Roger Moenks, the pictures were presented at a Hollywood charity gala in aid of UNICEF, raising funds and awareness for inadequate schooling and illiteracy across the globe.
Each lucky recipient of the portrait also received a version of the rare Montblanc Meisterstuck, the classic pen that celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. One of only 12 pieces worldwide, each pen is specially crafted in Montblanc’s workshop.
Montblanc has actively supported UNICEF since 2004. Their CEO Lutz Bethge said, “The support of children without proper access to education cannot stop when times are tough. Montblanc stands for credibility, trust, reliability and long lasting values, we therefore take our commitment to UNICEF very seriously.”
This year Montblanc, who create possibly the most famous writing instruments in the world, are championing products that are dedicated to both men and women. Luxos reveals their most covetable new additions for this year.
