ST Dupont launches The Humphrey Bogart collection
May 16, 2014: French luxury brand, S.T. Dupont has introduced a special collection dedicated to the quintessential screen icons Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn, named ‘Night Symphony’.
The Night Symphony collection reflecting the persona of Humphrey Bogart includes a vintage bag inspired by the Bogie bag, which the actor personally ordered from S.T. Dupont in 1947. The ideation of the avant-garde bag comes from Humphrey Bogart’s need for a travel bag that would be elegant and lightweight.
His search came to an end with S.T. Dupont's proposal of a doctor's bag in oilskin canvas which designed in the workshops of Faverges in eastern France by master craftsmen, features a one-of-a-kind, ultra-chic bag in beige canvas. The corners of the cutting-edge product are reinforced in cognac leather to match the handle, and the beige canvas is finished with a red, white and blue band attributing to the colours of the French flag on which appear the initials of the illustrious owner.
Celebrating S.T. Dupont's 140-year anniversary, The Bogie bag has been redone to accompany the ‘daytime version’, which preserves the colours originally requested by its owner with a slightly more rounded shape, giving origin to the Night Symphony Bogie available in deep black oilskin. The Night Symphony Bogie bag’s canvas with its reinforced corners in tone-on-tone leather, beautifully contrasts with a white band, set off by a palladium finish.
S.T. Dupont has also introduced luxury accessories which complement the collection. These include the Ligne 2 lighter and Elysée fountain pen and ballpoint, each finished in black and ivory Dupont lacquer and featuring Humphrey Bogart’s silhouette, engraved on a shield; two belts of smooth black leather, featuring palladium or magnetic lacquer finishes and enhanced by the same engraved Bogie shield; and elegant cuff links, also in black lacquer and palladium.
