Naar analogie met de 55-jarige traditie van De Vuyst beoogt ook de Icons Designshop topkwaliteit aan te bieden met oog voor detail en presentatie. Designobjecten zijn functioneel, maar ze hebben ook een onmiskenbare esthetische en creatieve component. De Icons Designshop is uniek in zijn soort, anders dan in andere designzaken wordt de keuze van de objecten hier eerst en vooral bepaald door hun artistieke kwaliteit.
Ever further – that’s where Paul Smith and Caran d’Ache want to go by reinventing their collaboration. Renewal characterised by boldness and innovation, always at the forefront of creativity. For this 4th partnership, the iconic English designer dresses the icon of Swiss writing in new clothes. Six 849s in two-tone combinations. Original, daring.
Between Sir Paul Smith, the internationally renowned English designer, and Caran d’Ache, the Swiss company overflowing with creativity, the meeting was natural, the admiration mutual and the partnership long-lasting. He is passionate about colour and draws inspiration from anything and everything. Art, music, daily life. He gives the classic a modern twist and can’t do without the writing instruments produced by the Geneva-based company, which bring his sketches and notes to life.
To breathe life into six 849s with colour combinations reflecting their DNA, Paul Smith & Caran d’Ache have pushed the boundaries back even further, 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, coordinate. A graphic look that reinterprets the designer’s famous stripes. The pairings are flashy or tender, unexpected, sharply contrasting, powerful and deep. And pastel too. No bias, just a desire to be feminine, masculine, unisex. To be attractive to everyone and something that everyone can make their own.
Reflecting all the expertise of Caran d’Ache, this collection brings 12 different colours to its iconic pens as well as to the metal boxes. Portable and reusable, the colours of the boxes reproduce those of the 849 nestling inside. A timeless collection, desirable and edgy.
