S.T. Dupont Paris
Handcrafted French excellence for the elite.
In 2012, S.T.Dupont, the most stylish of accessories brands, celebrated 140 years of prestige and exclusivity. One can look back over a rich, fascinating story, encompassing three centuries and featuring some of the most illustrious design personalities of their day.
Simon Tissot Dupont was no ordinary trunk maker. He was a trunk maker with a vision. At the age of 25, he became a photographer to Napoleon III and understood the need for quality travel goods. In 1872, he created a luggage and leather goods workshop, which then began to produce a steady stream of exceptional products for the very highest social circles. His vision was the Art of Travel, accompanied by trunks and cases personalised in every detail.
One of S.T. Dupont's earliest design successes were the Dupont lighters, made 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.
There were many other design landmarks in the illustrious history of this fine company. One example was the case of Hollywood star, Humphrey Bogart, who in 1947, ordered a lightweight, elegant travel bag, the Bogie, personalised with his initials.
In 1953, Andrè Dupont created his very first handbag, the Riviera, as a limited edition. None other than Audrey Hepburn was one of the first clients to own one.
Jackie Kennedy-Onassis famously owned a Dupont lighter. This was engraved with a simple J. She loved it so much that in 1973 she ordered a pen to match. So S.T.Dupont hit on the idea of reproducing the roller of the lighter as the body of a pen. And another Dupont icon was born: the "Classique" pen.
S.T. Dupont Paris at Wheelers Luxury Gifts
S.T. Dupont Paris comprises Four 'Arts' within the brand:
- The Art of Writing
- The Art of Fire
- The Art of Travel
- The Art of Seduction
The Art of Fire is represented by Dupont's collection of lighters and lighters accessories - the emblem of Dupont since 1952. World-renowned, Dupont lighters have the signature "cling" when opened. Each lighter has been manufactured by skilled craftsmen using precious materials such as Silver, Gold, Palladium and Lacquer. Each piece is unique and has its own identification number engraved on the bottom.
The Art of Writing is to be found in S.T. Dupont's collection of specialist writing instruments - including both pens and mechanical pencils. The collection was launched initially in 1973 with Dupont's first luxury ballpoint pen. The pens have been designed to be intimate and personal. They are elegant and have been made out of top quality materials such as silver, gold and lacquer.
The Art of Seduction is founded on Dupont's jewellery collection - cufflinks, keyrings, tie bars all made from precious metals and jewels. Â Master craftsmen work with gold, silver, palladium and other materials to create these elegant, yet minimal, designs. Â Timeless pieces that have been made with quality 'savoir-faire'.
The Art of Travel draws inspiration from the beginnings of the company. This is a collection of quality leather goods which have been made from calfskin, natural buffalo hide and full-grain lambskin. Each leather type has been meticulously tested. The bags and accessories in this collection are both stylish and functional.
