The Good Life

Whether running through busy streets to a business meeting, cycling from one neighborhood to another for a quick workout, or city hopping during the weekend to catch an art show, speed and performance are essential. Mont Blanc’s new Urban Racing Spirit collection was created for the hectic and unexpected pace of city life.

Recalling the stripes on 1970s racing cars, red detailing on the zipper pulls and shoulder straps enhances the sports attitude of the collection. The line meets the demands of business and leisure. Individual items range from $140 to $1,610. Visit the Mont Blanc store in International Plaza in Tampa.
