S.T. Dupont Writing Instruments
S.T. Dupont Paris
Handcrafted French excellence for the elite.
In 2012, celebrated 140 years of prestige and exclusivity. Simon Tissot Dupont started as a photographer to Napoleon III, understanding the need for high quality travel goods he began a leather and travel goods store in 1872. Here he began to develop a steady stream of exceptional products for the highest social circles. His vision was The Art of Travel, a range of trunks and cases finished with the highest details. Following the success of the his travelling accessories, S.T.Dupont’s next success were his innovative lighters, created exclusively for the Maharajah of Patiala.He had ordered a hundred Chinese lacquer minaudière clutch bags for his consorts, each one containing a solid gold lighter. The workshop spent three years completing this amazing and valuable order.
Within the illustrious history of the company, there were several other landmark designs emerging. More affluent orders were coming in, including one from Hollywood star, Humphrey Bogart, who in 1947, ordered a lightweight, elegant travel bag, the Bogie, personalised with his initials.
Andrè Dupont created his first handbag, in 1953 the Riviera was created as a limited edition, actress Audrey Hepburn was amongst the first to own one of these beautiful bags.
Fan of the brand, Jackie Kennedy-Onassis owned her own personalised Dupont lighter, she loved it so much she requested a pen be crafted to match, S.T.Dupont did exactly that, creating her own bespoke writing instrument mimicking the design of her beloved lighter, thus the ‘Classique’ was born.
