    Default 2014's Safari Colours

    Is it too soon to start guessing the colour of Lamy's next Safari? Any thoughts on whether they'll continue the neon theme with one in orange?

    What would people say to a smokey grey (like the section on an AL-star) Vista?

    Have they ever done a navy pen with an orange clip. That would be my dream Safari. Or a Maroon Pen with a yellow clip!

    But actual thoughts on 2014.... I wonder if they'll keep up the Neon theme and do a few more of those.

    [EDIT] I decided to play with this idea a bit more on my blog and I made two mockups for what I'd love to see. (If you want to read the entire post with all my rational you can click here).

    I would like a somber darkish green, but whatever they come out with, I'll prolly buy.

    I just want a purple Safari. Like always. After the last few years, however, I have given up hope.

    They did the orange recently, but it seems very popular on the secondary market. So the idea of doing a neon orange does make sense.

    Like Sailor Kenshin, I'll buy the 2014 model no matter what. I even popped for the neon yellow. And it wasn't so bad.

    +1 on the purple. Not going gaga over the neon colous.
    After all, I'm not a collector, just hoping for something pretty.

    A dark green Al-Star would be great!

    I would be all over a bright purple. Or a deep teal--something darker and deeper than the recent aquamarine.

    Opal green like the Nexx! Or a re-release of the coffee Al-Star. That I would be quite likely to buy actually.

    Or a green Safari to be released as a set with the yellow, blue and white for the World Cup in Brazil!

    I'd be a fan of Purple as well ...

    The neon ones were ok, but I feel like it was a time warp back to the 80's

    No, it isn't. And it is ironic that the knock-off maker recognizes the demand for a purple Safari, while Lamy looks like it's ignoring its customers. My inner two-year-old gets a little upset.

    Then of course I calm down and get a life.

    It's not bad...the color is a little deeper than I hoped, (online pics made it look paler and more 'dusty' lilac) but the pen itself writes and performs well. I've been thinking of trading mine but now I may hold on to it.

    But Laura N is correct...everyone wants a purple Safari. Why don't they make one?

    That's perfect. I can explain my Safari surplus by pointing out that I'm just covering Ivan's and Andy's share.
