British fashion designer Paul Smith has long been a fan of Caran d'Ache; carrying the Swiss pen at all times to take notes. And for their third collection together, Smith has rendered an assortment of eight colored pencils in his signature 'Artist Stripe.'
Smith's devotion to polychromatic stripes is represented in a new collection of stationery presented in a portable metal pencil case. The Supracolor® Soft water-soluble color pencils are ideal for both drawing and watercolor and cost $35.
For their latest collaboration, Smith and Caran d'Ache also revisit the iconic 849 ballpoint pen. Each pen contains a Goliath ink cartridge, which lasts for up to 600 pages of A4 writing, and is packaged in a case displaying one of Smith’s unmistakable hues including pistachio green, damson purple, peacock blue, coral pink, and more.
Pens are available in eight slim pack colors corresponding to each of the eight gilt coverings and cost $50 each.
