FrontRunners: Fine Lines

Montblanc (800.995.4810, www.montblanc.com) has introduced a new collection of platinum-plated and sterling silver accessories based on the German pen maker’s Bohème pen design. The sleek cuff links, tie bars, money clips, and key rings—priced from $125 to $190—were inspired by the 1930s industrial design movement of the same name. Grid patterns and barley guilloche surfaces are accented with onyx and synthetic sapphire stones for an unexpected element of color. The 97-year-old luxury brand has also introduced two new calfskin and bronze belt lines—New Classic dress styles and Smart Casual weekend looks—that highlight its expanded assortment of men’s leather goods.

The additions are part of a new, softer image unveiled at the company’s recently opened 2,500-square-foot New York flagship store, which eschews the company’s traditional high-tech black-and-white design scheme for one that utilizes natural wood and blue light.
