S.T. Dupont recently made the news after it was revealed that French President Emmanuel Macron gifted a bespoke item created by them to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as a wedding present. The company is now part of another world famous celebration: the FIFA World Cup which takes place in Russia this year. In honor of the occasion, S.T. Dupont has created a limited edition collection of writing instruments. The collection includes 2 pens.
The first of these pens are pretty intricate featuring bronze handles that depict some of Russia’s most famous and beautiful architectural marvels. It is presented on a black lacquered wooden base which also includes an ink pot shaped like a football and a pen stand that resembles a stadium. The pen itself is also topped with a shiny metallic football. The ST Dupont Football Haute Creation Ultra Exclusive is limited to just 11 pieces.
Meanwhile the second pen in the collection is much simpler, with a slender black body and a cap that features the distinctive hexagon and pentagon pattern seen on footballs. It is presented in a black box on a special surface that is designed with the markings seen on a football field. 500 of these pens have been created.
