Montblanc Opens Oscar Lounge and Hosts Celebrities To Launch its Princess Grace of Monaco Collection
Global celebrities including Rosario Dawson, Rosanna Arquette and Carmen Electra are due to attend the launch of Montblanc’s new collection inspired by Princess Grace of Monaco at the exclusive Bel Air Hotel on Saturday February 24th.
In addition, Montblanc will once again take up residence at the iconic Beverly Wilshire Hotel, offering private appointments for celebrity stylists, VIPs and celebrities. From February 20th - 26th, an extensive selection of pieces from Montblanc’s high jewellery collections will be on show at the Beverly Wilshire’s Royal Suite Styling Lounge.
In an ambitious contemporary creative project that crosses design disciplines and brings together all the facets of the brandʼs renowned expertise, Montblanc celebrates the life and style of the late Princess Grace of Monaco with a collection of Watches, High Jewellery and Fine Jewellery and Writing Instruments.
A true icon of the 20th century, Grace Kelly, who became H.S.H. Princess Grace, is
remembered and revered for her classic beauty and her inimitable style, both effortless and timeless. Far more than mere surface style, it was an innate elegance, an integral part of her character, touching every aspect of her life and work.
Elegance that shone out through her talent as an Oscar-winning actress, through her indefatigable charity work, her commitment to family and her ongoing, lifelong support for emerging artistic talent. This style and spirit, charisma and compassion are now distilled into a dramatic series or “family” of precious, hand-crafted collections of High Jewellery and Fine Jewellery, Watches and Writing Instruments. The Montblanc Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco is the most refined ever crafted in Montblancʼs own ateliers. Every detail of design and artisanship is inspired by and imbued with the Princessʼs serene sophistication, poise, pursuit of perfection, her values and philosophy. The exquisite and emotive leitmotif linking all four collections is the rose: Princess Graceʼs favourite flower, quintessentially feminine, an emblem of romance, passion and beauty.
Specifically, Montblanc has drawn on the Grace de Monaco rose, which was created in 1956, to mark the occasion of her fairytale marriage to H.S.H. Prince Rainier.
The wedding was the culmination of a much-talked about whirlwind romance between the Prince and the movie-star, following their meeting the previous year at the Cannes film festival. In 1984, Prince Rainier inaugurated a magnificent rose garden, in the Fontvieille Park in Monaco, fragrant with the scent of some 4000 roses, both American and European species in homage to the Princessʼs heritage and her great love of the rose.
