To celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary, Carlito Fuente worked with Manny Iriate to create artwork depicting the history of the family. Michael Reynolds, President of James Michael/Lotus International had the know how of the products that would create the look he envisioned. The goal was to create art, not just put a logo on to a product. The result of a year’s collaboration paid off as the collection of James Michael & S.T.Dupont cigar accessories were debuted in New Orleans, LA at IPCPR.
The S.T. Dupont Line 2 lighter with a cigar burner is adorned with design and engraving on all sides of the lighter. The S.T. Dupont Black lacquer or Red lacquer and gold plated piece is a limited edition of only Four Hundred pieces per color. Each piece is individually numbered along with a gold plated plaque presented in a custom designed high gloss wooden lacquer box. For the true Opus X aficionado Michael had Dupont work with II Saints to sculpt a bronze Line 2 lighter that shows the Old Havana balcony from the family’s Cuba days through today in Tampa Florida. This stunning piece is limited to Ten pieces.
There are also 3 Maxi Jets and 1 Cutter set being offered with Manny Iriate’s amazing artwork on the front and back of the lighter and cutter. Each set is packed with a Fuente Embossed Genuine Black leather pouch. The collection will be available beginning October 2015.
