Caran d’Ache x Paul Smith

Caran d'Ace 849 pen collection in collaboration with Paul Smith

The wait is over, the Caran d’Ache x Paul Smith collection is back!

Caran d’Ache renew their collaboration with Paul Smith with this bold and innovative collection. For their 4th partnership, the iconic English designer dresses the icon of Swiss writing in new clothes. Six 849 ballpoint pens in two-tone combinations. Original, daring.

When internationally renowned British designer Sir Paul Smith met Swiss creative experts Caran d’Ache – a marriage of two great brands came together, resulting in a longstanding and meaningful partnership. The latest iteration of the partnership is the result of the mutual admiration both brands have for each other, a collection of Caran d’Ache favourites, reimagined with the trademark Paul Smith design touch.

Two Tone Colours

Paying homage to the designer’s unexpected combinations as seen in the lining of his suits and the top-stitching of his shirts. The combinations surprise, contrast, clash and coordinate. A graphic look that reinterprets the designer’s famous stripes.

Paul Smith shares a passion for colour, something Caran d’Ache are renowned for. His love for colour derives from his love for art, music and inspiration from the everyday basic moments in his daily life. His forward thinking designs give new meaning to creativity and style. A longstanding fan of Caran d’Ache, he has used the Geneva based company’s writing instruments to create his sketches and notes for many years, making them essentials he cannot do without.

For Caran d’Ache, a love of colour is present in everything they do, a central pillar of everything the Swiss brand creates, constantly reinventing and creating collections as timeless as they are elegant.

This collection reflects the expertise of Caran d’Ache, as they constantly take on new technical challenges – applying 12 new colours, not only on the iconic hexagonal body of the 849 pen, but also on the metal cases that enclose them. These portable and reusable cases carry the gold-plated signature of ‘Caran d’Ache+Paul Smith’ – the seal of a timeless and special collection.
