New Limited S.T. Dupont Collection: Orient Express

Ever go look for something and it's not there? This happened to me today when my S.T. Dupont representative came in to show me their new limited edition lighter, pen, and cufflinks. First, I ask him why he is walking around with a purple briefcase? He didn't say anything just opened it up. Immediately, I went to go get my camera and to my surprise it was not there! Thankfully, he was able to provide me with photos of this BEAUTIFUL collection the:

S.T. Dupont Orient Express Prestige With The Collector Attache
Prestige Edition:

The design element on this exquisite line is nothing short of breathtaking. In my opinion, the pictures do not do this collection justice. There is nothing like seeing this these in person. The Collectors Edition comes with the Lighter, Cufflinks, Fountain Pen, Roller Pen,  Paper Cutter, and the Collector Attache.




S.T. Dupont Orient Express Prestige Ligne 2 Lighter
- Lighter:

My favorite item had to be the S.T. Dupont Orient Express Ligne 2. The Lighter has a sparkling blue placed lacquer and trimmed in palladium finishes. The iconic central medallion on the lighter is inspired by the obscure rain glass window on the bar car of the Orient Express. The center of this medallion is appointed with Mother of Pearl. The side of the lighter has magnificent engraving detail. The front of the lighter features the S.T. Dupont logo, and the back has the Orient Express Signature.




- Cufflinks:
S.T. Dupont Orient Express Prestige Cufflinks

The cufflinks use the same combination of Mother of Pearl and Palladium finishes that were used in the lighter. These cufflinks have that subtle stylishness to them: from afar you see them glisten, but they get so much better the closer you get. 




- Writing Kit:

S.T. Dupont Orient Express Prestige Writing Kit
The most innovative and detailed item is definitely the Writing Kit. The pen holder is crafted of blue placed lacquer and trimmed in gold finish. The rail cars and train wheels on this exquisite pen stand are also adorned in the same lustrous gold finish. When you place the Neo-Classique President Fountain Pen on top of this pen holder, behold… you are now looking at an authentic reproduction of the Orient Express! The carriage windows glimmer of mother of pearl, the body of the pen is a combination of S.T. Dupont’s luxurious blue and white placed lacquer, and the fountain pen is trimmed in yellow gold finish. Upon removing the cap, you will be mesmerized by the design on the nib. A reproduction of the Orient Express train wheels are actually engraved on the post of the gold nib set. The PrestigeWriting Kit also includes a matching ink bottle and gold paper cutter. Additionally, this set includes a converter kit, allowing you to convert this pen from a Fountain Pen to a Rollerball.

WOW, What a collection! This entire line is gorgeous, my rep said he will stop by sometime next week to show off the S.T. Dupont Orient Express Diamond Edition. 
I will be looking forward to that!
