Over the years, Montblanc has given us artistic and whimsical writing instruments with accessories to match. The German brand's next move, however, is an unexpected one as it goes back to the basics with an all-black cross-category collection. It's a simple statement, but a statement nonetheless.

The UltraBlack collection uses ebonite as the main ingredient to, as it says, celebrate modernity. From watches and leather accessories, each piece in the collection is an expression of sophisticated, modern style. The highlight is the StarWalker UltraBlack Precious Resin Fineliner which strikingly seems to float in mid-air on a grey base.

"Black is the Maison's essence, and is core to the brand’s identity, even as it evolved over the years to become the Maison of Luxury Business Lifestyle. The pieces and their functionality, while unified by their black design, were carefully selected based on the everyday needs and mindset of those who don’t just strive to succeed, but who leave a mark with everything they do, always with meaning and purpose. Montblanc Ultrablack offers smart wearable technology for enhanced connectivity, leather pieces for seamless mobility, writing instruments for bold ideas and creativity, watches for audacious elegance," says Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO.

To showcase the collection, Montblanc has tapped its ambassadors (AKA Mark Makers) Cillian Murphy and Peggy Gou. "Cillian and Peggy are both Mark Makers, inspiring individuals who embody the ethos of Montblanc. They are both living proof that when you do what inspires you with audacity and creativity, you lead a more fulfilling life. In their own original ways, they both leave their mark in the world through their artistry and creativity, always driven by their passions and a higher purpose," says Vincent Montalescot, Montblanc EVP Marketing.

Murphy sported new pieces from the UltraBlack Collection with a video that conveys the message that Montblanc products are made to accompany you on your journey as you pursue what you love. And, with an all-black collection that goes with pretty much everything, we couldn't agree more.

Take a look at the collection below.
