By Yemisi Suleiman
Nigeria’s leading luxury retail company, Polo Limited, and Providus Bank, recently hosted a spellbinding Montblanc Collector’s evening in Victoria Island, Lagos.
The exclusive event celebrated the artistry of Montblanc’s first Masters of Art collection of writing instruments in honour of Vincent van Gogh, the 19th century Master of Art.
The unveiling was held at the Providus Bank penthouse, where the interior was transformed to mirror Saint-Remy-de-Provence, a town in Southern France, where Vincent van Gogh lived most of his life as an artist.
Guests were guided through wheat fields reminiscent of the scenery that became associated with much of Vincent van Gogh’s work.
The evening unfolded with a captivating showcase of Montblanc’s homage to Vincent van Gogh’s writing instruments, providing discerning clients with an immersive journey through the brand’s legacy of precision and craftsmanship.
Limited-edition pieces, each a masterpiece in its own right, were displayed, allowing clients to explore the artistry behind the coveted items.
John Obayuwana, Managing Director, Polo Limited, said “it was a real pleasure meeting some of the avid pen collectors while celebrating the exceptional artistry of Montblanc’s craftsmanship.”
