Elie Bleu, the French artisanal brand known for luxury marquetry, has partnered with the renowned photographer Réhahn on a new line of cigar accessories.
The collection features the artist’s iconic portrait of the 73-year-old Elva smoking a Cohiba Esplendido cigar on the streets of Havana. The vibrant wreath of flowers atop her head recalls Frida Kahlo, while Réhahn’s signature portrait style can be seen in Elva’s powerful gaze.
The line will include ashtrays, lighters, and a custom humidor that will be limited to 50 numbered copies worldwide. The materials chosen by Elie Bleu for the humidor include a glossy lacquered finish on the photograph and golden grained woods that mimic the colors of tobacco.
The products will be available at Casa del Habano Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and selected merchants starting in June 2023.
