Billy Porter at the Montblanc (RED) Launch Event

Posted on October 10, 2019

Let’s start the day off with Mr. Porter, shall we? Is there a better way to start off the day?


Serve, king.

This may seem a little restrained in comparison to Mr. Porter’s usual red carpet fare. But this is an AIDS event and it probably wouldn’t have made sense for him to show up in a gown or a beaded body suit. He’s still every inch his exuberant self but he’s pulled back a bit on the reins, so to speak. We love the whole look but we especially love the shades and the oh-so on-point beret. Never let it be said that Mr. Porter doesn’t dress appropriately for the occasion and setting.


To mark the latest chapter in its partnership with (RED) and the collective fight to end HIV/AIDS, Montblanc gave guests and friends of the Maison a first look at the latest additions to its (MONTBLANC M)RED collection at a global launch event in Paris. For the occasion, Montblanc converted the façade of its Champs-Elysées boutique in red and introduced an original art installation by Belgian artists Denis Meyers and Arnaud Kool, a fresh interpretation of the ‘the art of writing’ featuring powerful messages inspired by the (MONTBLANC)RED partnership. With the launch of the expanded (MONTBLANC M)RED Collection – a new Trolley and writing instrument collection – Montblanc reaffirmed its commitment to raising money and awareness for the fight to end HIV/AIDS.
