Recent leaks suggest that there will be 3 Limited edition Safaris in 2019 with pastel colors.

I am happy that they are trying something new.

It's a different route from the flashy neon colors or the recent matte/textured safaris (lilac, petrol, all-black).

Hmmmm.

The pink and the green ones are right out.  The blue?  Looks like a washed out version of the Pacifica Blue al-Star LE.  Which I passed on in favor of a more expensive TWSBI-580 AL when I went to look at the al-Star.  Not sure who's running Lamy's marketing department....  :(  These are awfully "girly" looking colors.  And while I joke about having "'girly' hands" I am so NOT a "girly girl"....

But I didn't really care for this year's "Vibrant Pink" al-Star LE either when I saw it.  And I didn't really like the pink Safari from a few years ago when I saw *that*....  (OTOH, when the Dark Lilac Safari LE came out I was like "Where do I GO?  And who do I have to cut in line ahead of?"

Maybe the green one. Maybe not.

Interesting, they have color-coordinated O-rings between barrel and section.

Pretty. Luckily I don't collect Safaris. But an interesting new approach. Especially the rings. I wonder if the fake screw heads are also in that color.

While I am not  "pink" collector (but I do have the Pink LE from a few years ago) I do like the other two colors.

It would look better on the Al-Star than in the Safari in my opinion

I wonder how these leaked so early?

I also noticed the coloured rings and I esp love the blue ring, as it is a slightly different shade than the pen!

 

I find Safaris (Al-Stars/ Vistas) pretty fugly and they are totally a school pen to me (not to be used outside the home), but stuff like this is what makes me buy them. I totally love the blue & green. Unsure about the pink, because it's too beige/ flesh-coloured/ "nude", not a hue I'm particularly fond of. I'd have to see that one in person or better pics of it.

Well, as someone who has 4 Safaris (Apple Green, White, Dark Lilac, Petrol), doesn’t collect them, doesn’t like pastels and who would never be described as a “girly girl”, I am surprised that I really like them. Why? I’m not sure, except that I’ve never owned or seen a “pastel” coloured pen, so I think I like the fact that they’re so unusual. (And based on the posts so far, they’re unpopular and likely to remain unusual.) I would pair them with bold, clashing, “in your face” inks, just for fun.

They would match up well with Stabilo Boss pastel highlighters.  ;)

I've seen somewhere that TWSBI will also be releasing pastel color, so 2019 is the year of the pastels?
