The Zippo x Foundrae Luxe Capsule Collection Combines Elegance with Expertise

If you’re in need of a lighter that will spark your choice of smoke for years to come, look no further. The Zippo x Foundrae Luxe Capsule collection is an elegant pocket lighter that combines Foundrae’s iconic snazzy appearance with Zippo’s recognizable expertise and durable windproof technology for a lighter that is an instant modern-day heirloom.

The Zippo x Foundrae Luxe Capsule was announced just in time for the holiday season and is a great gift for the cigar, cigarette, or weed smoking men in your family. The collection captures both the charm of Foundrae’s luxury jewelry reputation as well as Zippo’s keen attention to high-quality manufacturing, which put forth traits like strength and utility, wrapped in 18-karat gold.

Foundrae’s first high-end jewelry collection was debuted in spring 2016, and in just two years the brand won “Breakthrough of the Year” in the 2018 Town & Country Jewelry Awards and made their name in fine retailers across the U.S. such as Ylang 23, Broken English, as well as their New York City flagship store which sits at 52 Lispenard street.

On the other hand, Zippo has produced over 550 million windproof lighters backed by an unrivaled lifetime warranty since 1932, all while maintaining a diverse product line which includes everything from pocket lighters and lighter accessories to fragrances and flame products for outdoor enthusiasts. If you’re not familiar with the Zippo brand, you’ve likely seen or heard their coveted flick-open sound on the streets or as a prop in a movie at some point in your lifetime.

So the Zippo x Foundrae Luxe Capsule collaboration comes as no surprise, considering the authenticity and innovation shared between both companies. And it’s an effort we at The Manual find worthy of drooling over. Even if nobody in your family smokes, this pocket lighter is elaborate in its construction and appearance, so it’s fancy enough to keep around the house as a showpiece or to be used to light a candle when the power goes out.

The Foundrae Zippo lighters are available for purchase at Foundrae’s TriBeCa flagship store or online on Foundrae’s website. The lighters retail from $2,375 for sterling silver and $14,095 for 18-karat gold.
