THE MAISON’S MONTBLANC EXTREME 3.0 LEATHER COLLECTION GETS AN UPDATE
Montblanc’s signature leather collection Montblanc Extreme 3.0 returns with a springtime selection of bags and small leather goods in brand-new shapes and colors. Introduced originally in July 2022 to withstand the demands of everyday movement and balance functionality with sleek, contemporary style, the updated Montblanc Extreme 3.0 selection departs from the original black and British green colors with the introduction of two shades: an intense blue and a modern grey. Accompanying the new colors are three new dynamic shapes: a Compact Envelope bag, a Mini Messenger bag, and two versions of a Round Pouch. Alongside these novelties, the selection features classic pieces from the original Montblanc Extreme 3.0 collection in the two new colors, including a Backpack, a Thin Document Case, as well as an assortment of bracelets, wallets, mini pouches and notebooks. The Montblanc Summit 3 Smartwatch also joins the extended collection in April 2023 with a new watchface and leather strap in the new grey color that is compatible with all Summit generations.
As an addition to the Montblanc Extreme 3.0 collection, the pieces have been printed on a signature leather motif that draws inspiration from images created by Grete Gross, Montblanc’s Head of Advertising who deeply influenced Montblanc’s visual language in the 1920’s. The rational, geometrical and pragmatic visuals were directly influenced by the Bauhaus style of the time. For the Montblanc Extreme 3.0 collection, the motif has been enlarged on two different scales – a bigger treatment for bags, and a smaller one for small accessories and the Montblanc Summit 3 Smartwatch strap.
To highlight the new coloring and add a fascinating technical detail to the collection, the original M LOCK 4810 buckle has been redeveloped in transparent Plexiglas to expose the internal mechanism of the lock. Inspired by closures used in the climbing world, the M LOCK 4810 buckle is certainly worth observing: it features a special mechanism that guarantees secure closure, but is equally easy to open when needed.
The Montblanc Extreme 3.0 collection consists of a selection of different shapes, sizes and functions designed to fit the lifestyles of those for whom every day is not about routine but about adventure, whether at work or at play. The collection’s compact shapes also follow the latest trend of incorporating small accessories to larger bags: the small accessories feature rings that can be attached to the bags via hooks, allowing each wearer to create new contrasts of volumes and colors with many customization possibilities.
