Caran D'Ache 849 is a ballpoint pen, decorated by graphic patterns from the designer Alexander Girard. It comes with a box featuring the familiar eye motif by Girard. A perfect gift and addition to collector's item.
Together with Girard Studio and Vitra, Caran d’Ache introduces the 849 Alexander Girard Collection. Applying graphic patterns by Alexander Girard to the refined 849 silhouette, Caran d’Ache has created a timeless classic writing instrument.
Since the earliest days of his youth, Girard was accustomed to taking a writing instrument along wherever he went. He always carried one in the inner pocket of his tweed jacket, ready to jot down a quick note or sketch out an idea. Moreover, he usually had some sort of paper on hand – very often notepads from hotels where he had stayed. He liked their thin sheets and the practical dimensions that fit in his trouser pockets, and eventually acquired a whole collection of them. Whether with a short text in one of the seven languages Girard had mastered or in the form of a drawing: he knew how to express himself with a pen.
