Christopher King Launches Ultra Luxury Brand CCCXXXIII

On the evening of June 5th, 2018 in the decadent petite salon of the Baccarat Hotel in New York City, some of New York’s most influential people and brands celebrated the launch of entrepreneur, designer and creative director Christopher R. King’s newest venture.

CCCXXXIII (‘Three Hundred Thirty-Three’) is a bespoke luxury brand created out of a need for pieces that were functional, classic and timeless.

The first collection is a limited offering of The Attaché, followed by lifestyle items such as hand-wrought, solid mahogany humidors and plush slippers.

After not being able to find a case to fit his own requirements of size, functionality and beauty, Mr. King embarked on a 13-month design process with an Italian atelier to bring his vision to life. Each collection will be limited to 333 pieces, presented in curated offerings of 300, 30 and an exclusive and very rare 3. The collection will encompass 300 “Julian” cases in fine Italian leather, 30 “Constantine” cases fashioned in South African crown ostrich, and for the true connoisseur who demands the very best, 3 “Imperium” cases in Australian porosus crocodile skin with solid gold finishes.

The cases are lined with suede and mink and are handcrafted using the highest quality materials and skins, all personally selected by Mr. King. All cases will feature signature gold crown coin enclosures.

These custom clasps were envisioned by Mr. King, who sought the assistance of the Florence-based jeweler to the Vatican to help execute his design to perfection. Each unique crown closure goes through a vigorous process that took over six months to perfect; relying on nearly 270 tons of pressure to process, a rarity among luxury brands today. Price points of The Attaché are $9,750, $35,000, and $175,000 respectively.
