CARAN D'ACHE SUPRACOLOR PENCILS, 2OTH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION SET
Caran d’Ache, Maison de Haute Ecriture, celebrates the 20th anniversary of its famous Supracolor®,
pencils with one of its greatest enthusiasts: Alber Elbaz, Artistic Director of Lanvin.
"Les 20 ans de Supracolor by Alber"
To mark the first 20 years of Supracolor®, the Geneva company has produced an exclusive box containing the 120 original colours.
This Limited Edition of 1988 pieces reflects the 20 years since Supracolor® was launched. It is the result of a meeting between two independent companies, Lanvin and Caran d’Ache. It is decorated with sketches kindly lent by the man TIME Magazine voted one of the most influential personalities in the world in 2007: Alber ELBAZ, the Artistic Director of the world’s oldest fashion house. He loves to make tiny sketches during fittings to alter the details of his collections. "I sit in front of the mirrors and I draw what I see. My Supracolor® pencils are not just useful - they are essential."
These drawings are a key part of his work as a designer, setting the colours and lines that give life to his materials and the form of his clothes.
The elegant creativity of the "20 years of Supracolor® by Alber" demonstrates the two companies’ passion for beauty and their determination to pass on their expertise to successive generations. This is a gift that offers as much pleasure to give as to receive.
