McLaren by S.T. Dupont Collection
McLaren is this year celebrating its 50th anniversary in Formula One, and is using that celebration to partner with S.T. Dupont on a range of leather goods and other accessories identical to the ones created for McLaren drivers Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button.
French brand S.T. Dupont was selected by McLaren to equip its drivers and entire racing team for their travel requirements. And this year, the two world champions sport the colours of the new collection.
The collection makes use of elegant materials, perfect finishes and, in 2016, for the very first time, technical leather: a diamond perforated full-grain leather with a brilliant black finish along with a McLaren-rocket red topstitching.
There’s also the McLaren 2016 ballpoint pen, based on the Défi model. It’s a streamlined writing instrument that offers exceptional writing comfort thanks to the ideal fluidity of its gel ink. Its tapered bodywork combines a high-precision injected metal framework and a casing made from diamond perforated full-grain leather with a brilliant black finish.
