Sartorial elegance redefined in the new Croco Dandy Collection from S.T. Dupont

With a 147-year heritage, S.T. Dupont is celebrated for its prestigious Parisian elegance and exquisite craftsmanship. Iconic leather travel goods, lighters and writing instruments are finely handcrafted using a blend of time-honored skills and artisan savoir-faire to create only the most exceptional of accessories.

S.T. Dupont’s founder, Simon Tissot Dupont was a man with a vision; to create exceptional, personalized travel trunks that would be the perfect travelling companions for the European elite, both in form and function. Before long, a personalized S.T. Dupont travelling trunk became the essential accessory for the highest social circles in Europe. The S.T. Dupont innovation and desire for excellence in all things soon extended into elite lifestyle accessories, harnessing rare techniques and expertise to produce luxury lighters, writing instruments and travel bags owned by connoisseurs from Coco Chanel to Pablo Picasso, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

With the launch of the Croco Dandy Collection, S.T. Dupont brings together two of their most famous artisan techniques; fine leatherworking and exceptional natural lacquer skill, to redefine their elegant croc-embossed aesthetic through the most iconic pieces in the house’s leather goods and luxury lighter collections. Featuring refined materials including embossed leather and natural lacquer, the Croco Dandy Collection reveals the house’s rich heritage of marrying luxury designs with the finest artisan craftsmanship, with attention to detail that enhances everyday function.

A classic aesthetic with a modern twist

Sophisticated black alligator-embossed leather and a refined silhouette add layers of luxury and detail to the Croco Dandy document holder, while the spacious and well organized inside compartments including a padded compartment for a laptop or tablet, as well as flat and zip pockets and two pen compartments make it a brilliantly practical choice. Along with the distinctive S.T. Dupont tricolor stitch, instantly recognizable to those in the know, the bag also features comfortable carry handles, an outside pocket, leather luggage tab and adjustable padded shoulder strap.

The Croco Dandy clutch is a perfect on-the-go choice. Crafted from black croc-effect leather, this stylish clutch features a detachable leather wrist strap for convenient carrying, and zips open to reveal six card slots along with two compartments with a zip pocket and a pen loop.

Adding to the collection are two smart croco-pattern black leather wallets, one with six card pockets, two handy compartments for papers or tickets and a large pocket for bank notes, and a second larger version with eight credit card slots, four compartments and a deeper bank note compartment. Both feature an embossed S.T. Dupont logo and a discreet tricolor stitch as an instantly recognizable mark of distinction. The Croco Dandy leather accessories are all available in black or brown leather to fit the sartorial preferences of any discerning man about town.
Only for true aficionados …

Cigar connoisseurs will be delighted with the new Croco Dandy cigar accessory collection, which includes a choice of two iconic lighters, a humidor and adjustable single, double or triple cigar cases. Designed for true aficionados, the cigar cases add signature S.T. Dupont elegance to the cigar experience and are crafted in croc-embossed leather in black or brown, with a stainless-steel base, engraved with S.T. Dupont.

The famous Le Grand S.T. Dupont lighter, prized for its superb engineering and ability to switch easily from a yellow flame to a powerful blue torch flame, has been reimagined in a croco-pattern to complement the collection. Natural lacquer in a sunburst finish is applied by artisans to the solid brass Le Grand lighter, and then painstakingly detailed with a croc-pattern design to create a smoking accessory that is as striking as it is stylish. The exclusive finish has also been extended to S.T. Dupont’s Maxi Jet lighter with its powerful blue torch flame, as well as a 75-cigar humidor. The natural lacquer croco-pattern Maxi Jet lighter has a 35-day capacity and features a single thumb push action for ease of use. The handsome Croco Dandy humidor features a perfectly lacquered exterior, finished with exquisite croco-pattern detailing and would be a perfect addition to any connoisseur’s collection.

Finally, classic aesthetics are given a contemporary twist in the Croco Dandy Collection’s dynamic lighter and pen combination. The innovative Slim 7 lighter and D Initial writing instrument play with dualities in a flawless croco-pattern matt and glossy finish. Supremely sophisticated additions to the everyday, these desirable accessories are designed to celebrate both form and function in a light and modern lighter with flat blue torch flame and a highly durable ballpoint or convertible rollerball writing instrument.
