Montblanc and Public School launch eco collection
Montblanc has teamed up with Public School New York (PSNY) to launch an environmentally conscious collection inspired by streetwear.
The five-piece assortment consists of bags and accessories created from regenerated fabric and additional environmentally conscious materials. Items include a duffel bag, envelope and envelope mini, belt bag and business card holder.
The brand said that every material used in the creation of this eco-friendly line was carefully selected to minimize environmental impact. The fabric used, both externally and for the lining of each piece, is an environmentally friendly nylon yarn called Econyl, which transforms waste into a nylon that can be recycled infinitely, without losing its quality.
The stainless steel utilized for detailing purposes is also entirely recyclable. All the while, each item features an internal leather tag sharing a manifesto celebrating the spirit of those who care to protect the planet: “Those who dare, those who will, those who care make the difference”.
“With this unique collaboration, our goal is to give the environmentally conscious and opportunity to experience the disruptive streetwear of Public School New York, while also reaffirming their commitment to reducing their footprint on the planet,” said Sylvain Costof, president of Montblanc North America. “It is proof that a luxury leather collection can not only be stylish and truly functional, but it can also be conscientious and environmentally responsible.”
“We have been very focused on having our goods be more environmentally responsible in recent years,” added PSNY founder Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne. “We are thrilled to be able to partner with Montblanc in its own effort to make luxury more conscious of the world around us.”
The German writing instruments and accessories brand is no stranger to collaborations. In 2019, it introduced a collaboration with edgy Japanese streetwear label Bape. Next, it designed a collection in collaboration with Maison Kitsuné, signifying a shift into new product categories.
Come 2022, Montblanc is expected to unveil a new flagship store concept reflecting both the brand’s long-established expertise and today’s widespread digitalization.
