Montblanc unveiled Meisterstück Selection Sfumato, masterfully painted leather goods with a contemporary and sophisticated appeal, on 1 April 2015, in an event hosted at 3 Olaf Street in London’s West End quarter.

The glitzy affair saw award-winning actor and Montblanc Brand Ambassador Hugh Jackman join Montblanc CEO Jérôme Lambert for the global launch of the one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by “sfumato”, an ingenious painting technique developed during the Renaissance by the great masters including Leonardo da Vinci, and applied by Montblanc to the treatment of leather to highlight its natural beauty.

Among the attendees of the exclusive launch were famous fashion bloggers Adam Gallagher aka @iamgalla as well as Kadu Dantas aka @kadudantas

The launch was held inside the expansive London art venue where its dramatic façade featured a colourful light installation by legendary contemporary artist James Turrell. Guests were transported into the world of Montblanc craftsmanship, and were given a tour of the aesthetics of the designs and also the passion that goes into creating the Sfumato Selection.

After the preview, there was an intimate dinner for Hugh Jackman and 100 VIP guests in an atmospheric dining area lit by candles and theatrical spot lighting. Each of the three tables were dressed to mirror the elegant tones of Sfumato collection with decorations, linens, chairs and flowers inspired by one of the three colours.

Unfortunately I wasn’t invited for the dinner in London however Montblanc Malaysia invited me to their boutique in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur to see the preview of the collection up close. Also invited was gorgeous upcoming model and celebrity Venice Min, as well as popular fashion blogger Stephanie Lim.
