Interestingly Lamy hasn't announced any new color for the Safari in 2018 so far. Nor the AL-Star.

 

I hope it's something I will really like!  For some reason there are only a small handful of colors/combinations they've released that I really like and want to use, and I now have 3 out of 4 of them (Coffee Al-Star, Rose Gold LX, Petrol Safari, "Purple" Al-Star).

Toxic Green would be my vote!  But an orange, like safety orange, would be nice too.

Doesn't Lamy announce their colors in later November or December?

Do they? I can't remember. I thought it was more like October. But I might be wrong.

I know... I've been having bouts of insomnia over it... the only thing that puts me to sleep is looking at my Safari collection and doing mathematical probability exercises on what the next color will be.

I'm praying for a shiny Safari.  Not to be rude, but I really dislike matte Safaris.

 And it's funny -- I prefer the matte colors over the shiny ones.  I have tried to make myself like the shiny colors well enough to get a second Safari and have not yet talked myself into it (when I decided I really did want one, I thought about getting one of the pink ones (not coral -- the actual pink from a couple of years before).  Only when I saw them for real I was very unenamored of the color.  But the Dark Lilac?  Oh absolutely....  :wub:  Of course the black nib and black clip helped....  B)

But that's the great thing about this little hobby.  Flippy, you can have all the shiny barrel Safaris your little heart desires (assuming that you aren't blowing the college funds or anything of course), so I don't have to buy ANY of them!  :thumbup:

We need a brown, of course. Let's all go out for coffee together. We'll all order a different latte and choose. I gotta say I prefer matte colors...

Looks to be close to the "Griso" from 2001

For me, the perfect color already exist. It's "Umbra", charcoal.

...but of course, I will buy the 2018 color as well.

Maybe some pastel color this time....

I was thinking gray with blue clip which is supposed to be Pantone color of the year 2018

Don't mean to necropost, but I have decided that a dove grey with a yellow clip would be awesome.
