If you’re looking for some stylish new leather additions to your look, Montblanc’s new Meisterstück Selection Soft collection has you covered.
When we think of leather we tend to think of forging a weathered patina that lends character to our items, whether it’s a wallet, an attache case, or that custom-crafted gimp suit that’s a devil to dry clean. However, not all leather is designed to show the chapters of its life. When it comes to soft leather – we’re talking so soft you can’t help but sign at its touch – it’s about maintaining its integrity and rejoicing in its stupendous suppleness (and one of the few occasions a man can utter the world “supple” outside the bedroom).

If you’re on the look out for a few new super soft leather additions to your wardrobe, you might want to take a look at the new Meisterstück Selection Soft collection from Montblanc. An alternative expression of Montblanc’s signature leather goods collection, Meisterstück Selection Soft is crafted from a new softer leather, and features a range of wallets, bags and and accessories that mirror the needs of modern men.
The collection also differs from the Maison’s core signature Meisterstück collection in that functional elements such as compartments and organization solutions have been moved to the outside of each piece, rather than remaining hidden on this inside, besides a new softer leather.
The hero piece of the collection, the 24/7 Bag, was designed with a focus on versatility. A hybrid between a tote, a document case and a duffle, it can be carried as a bag or worn as a backpack with plenty of options for external storage. Medium leather pieces include a Messenger, Sling Bag and a Pouch, convenient compact shapes created for everyday adventures, while the collection’s small leather goods include a wallet and a key pouch and feature a removable leather strap so that they can be safely secured to a bag. The strap itself can also be used as a Key Fob on its own.
The stylish detailing throughout the collection is consistent with the design codes of the Meisterstück line with references to the Maison’s iconic creation – the Meisterstück writing instrument. The language of the nib is referenced in the leather details on the bags themselves as well as the leather zip puller in the shape of the nib. The collection sees the introduction of a Montblanc emblem in a larger size, inspired by the Montblanc Heritage writing instrument collection.
