One of the most exclusive names in the world of men’s fashion is getting its own special OpusX.
At last week’s InterTabac Trade Fair in Dortmund, Germany, Arturo Fuente showed off a new, special OpusX created for Stefano Ricci, the men’s fashion label.
The new cigar is a 7 x 52 parejo that Carlos “Carlito” Fuente Jr. described as a blend of his favorite cigars. As with most details, there wasn’t much more information available. Pricing is unknown and it isn’t even clear if the cigar will be sold as a standalone offering, though Filippo Ricci, the company’s creative director, told halfwheel he planned on selling them at the company’s boutiques.
Those cigars feature a secondary band featuring Stefano Ricci’s logo, an eagle. They were presented in a box that was designed by Stefano Ricci.
A New York Times profile of the company specifically mentioned that at certain locations, customers who spent more than $100,000 annually were offered Cohiba cigars. That same article indicated a customer could hit that mark by buying just four custom suits.
In addition to the cigars, Stefano Ricci brought a variety of accessories to show off in the Arturo Fuente International stand in Dortmund. Amongst them was a cigar cutter that feature the OpusX branding and crocodile, a signature for the brand.
Some other items, such as a humidor and ashtray were not branded with a Fuente logo.
This is the second partnership for Fuente with a European luxury in the last few years. In 2012, the company began working with the watch brand Hublot.
