Writing letters is a long forgotten thing. For all of us who mourn for the irreplaceable act of writing letters and reading the same, luxury brand Louis Vuitton announced plans to revive this dying way of communication and even more to bring it to the highest level. On December 13, LV will open a temporary boutique in France at 6 Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés called Le Cabinet d’Ecriture Louis Vuitton (or Louis Vuitton’s writing room, in English) to debut the new range of elegant writing instruments and paper products.
LV designers drew inspiration from literary greats like Ernest Hemingway and 17th-century French novelists, and it took two years to develop this elegant writing collection, which includes stationery, pens, pencils, and a crystallized ink pot. Beside elegant envelopes with trunk closures illustrated on the flaps, lavish alligator leather encased fountain pens, all of which can be personalized with engravings, there is even a bespoke stationary set.
New writing collection will include modern, high-tech items as well, including what Vuitton claims is among the first patented innovations in fountain pens since 1953: a mechanism that protects cartridges from pressure changes due to air travel, and prevents leakage in a variety of writing conditions.
Luxury pens and pencils ranging from ballpoint, pencil and roller formate in different shapes and designs, as well as notebooks and other paper products are also included in the collection.
Just in time for holiday, this collection will be available with the price from $44.50 for a pot of ink to $2,220 for an alligator fountain pen with a piston-filling system.
