First introduced in 1969, the Caran d’Ache 849 pen – with its recognisable hexagonal design – is considered an absolute classic, winning fans all over the globe. Paul counts himself among them. In fact, he’s rarely without his, which he stashes in his suit pocket wherever he goes.

Our collaboration with the brand was built on that foundation and began when the company was celebrating its 100th anniversary. Now in its fifth edition, the latest Paul Smith + Caran d’Ache collection introduces to the range a mechanical pencil and fountain pen. As ever, the standard of quality is exceptional, reflective of more than a century of expert Swiss craftsmanship.
With a two-tone colour scheme – a graphic nod to Paul’s popular stripe motifs – each combination has been carefully chosen to contrast, clash or coordinate, reflecting Paul’s clever use of colour. Along with good looks, practicality was also front of mind, and so each style comes in a coordinating reusable tin, designed to be used as a pencil case or to store other knick knacks.
