What If Paul Smith meets Caran D’Ache?

British designer Paul Smith paired with the Swedish brand for a new series of the iconic 849 pen, available now in eight different hues

British designer Paul Smith pairs once again with Caran d’Ache to paint the iconic 849 in new different colours, available now within a special box containing eight wacky pens.

“I’ve always had a weakness for Caran d’Ache’s pens, so I felt honoured when they asked me to collaborate on several creations to celebrate the brand’s 100 years anniversary”, said Paul Smith just one year ago, as their first collaboration kicked off. Now the merge has made a vivid come back, all covered by the striped pattern that is today synonymous with Paul Smith .

Eight new colours with which the 849 pen has been painted all over its hex shape to give birth to a brand new version, packed in a motley box.

 

In the pictures: the iconic 849 pen designed by Paul Smith for Caran d'Ache, and the special box painted in stripes as a nod to the British designer’s signature pattern.

Known for his vivid colours and his creative modern-yet-traditional spirit, Paul Smith brings up his avant-garde taste with a limited edition series of pen. 

To him, fashion has always been a lavish land from which he took off to discover new worlds. And so it is for architecture, arts and photography: everything is a source of inspiration for the London-based designer whose curiosity drove him to create colourful and unusual passions.

Famous for his collections and accessory lines, Paul Smith has become an expert in mixing up artisanal tradition with avant-garde design, leading both British and International trends.

Long was the road traced by the British designer who started off as a young cyclist to then create his own fashion label in the midst of a punk "youthquake" that shook up London, and never had it back as it was.
