A King’s Instruments The 149 Meisterstuck fountain pen by Montblanc comes with a blue ink pot as part of the special edition for the new Kingsman film

Sometimes, it takes all the King’s men to come up with such precious writing paraphernalia. Montblanc introduces a limited edition writing set inspired by and developed for the forthcoming release of the 20th Century Studios and MARV film, ‘The King’s Man’ by Matthew Vaughn – the latest instalment of the Kingsman movie series. Exclusive to Montblanc e-commerce channels from September through to the film’s release in February 26th 2021, the special edition Montblanc writing set is part of the latest ‘costume to collection’ collaboration between Vaughn, Mr Porter and luxury brand Kingsman; an extensive collection of men’s tailoring, luxury wear, and accessories.

First created by leading British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, in tandem with his 2014 blockbuster ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’, the Kingsman brand has established itself as a standalone lifestyle brand across multiple categories and partnerships, and is one of Mr Porter’s best-performing luxury labels. The Kingsman ‘costume to collection’ incorporates the film’s classic looks into stylish men’s pieces, making them relevant for contemporary dress.

A King’s Instruments Kingsman and Montblanc come together to craft this beautiful writing instrument set with a 149 gold nibbed Meisterstuck, an ink pot and a calfskin leather notebook made in Italy

The special Montblanc set includes a 149 Meisterstück fountain pen, fine leather notebook and ink bottle, all inspired by the film’s elegant and enduring designs. Launched in 1924, the Meisterstück 149 fountain pen has become a symbol of Montblanc’s timeless writing culture heritage. In precious black resin with gold fittings, the new special edition features a handcrafted Au750 / 18 k gold nib engraved with the Kingsman emblem. Manufactured in Italy, the accompanying notebook (only available as part of the set) is made of black calfskin leather digitally printed with the Kingsman emblem, and its pages watermarked with the Montblanc emblem. Royal blue ink completes the writing experience. Contained in a 30ml glass bottle, the blue pigment is inspired by the Kingsman’s signature blue suit.

The Meisterstück Kingsman Special Edition Coffret is available now at www.montblanc.com.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
