For over 20 years, Caran d’Ache has paid vivid tribute to the most attractive colours of Lake Geneva. From the intensity of its blue waters to the depth of its magical nights, the Léman Collection offers a stunning reflection of the lake’s unique aura. Writing instruments transformed into essential companions through the combination of two precious ancestral skills that are emblematic of the company: the art of lacquering and the art of guillochage. Used in conjunction with a color chart developed over a number of years by the craftsmen of Caran d’Ache, this mastery is clear for all to see.
With Léman Bleu Marin, Caran d’Ache invites writing fans on a soothing journey as the unfathomable waters ripple in the wake of adventurous boats. Adorned in sparkling navy blue lacquer, its body displays a deeply textured guillochage for the very first time, subtly calling to mind the sailing boats scattered over the water.
Léman Rouge Carmin is an invitation to let your mind roam free at the end of the day as the sky and waves catch fire. Coated in translucent red lacquer, its body is adorned with subtle glints embodying the glittering contrasts of the lake. A journey through a kaleidoscope of cubic guillochage in the deep, vibrant colours of Switzerland. With its gentle curves oozing modernity, Léman Rouge Carmin offers a breath of contemporary elegance.
Caran d’Ache presents an anniversary edition as magical as the night and as festive as the sparkling colors of a fireworks display. The refinement of the finishing can be admired through the transparent black lacquered outer layer, representing a rare art perfectly mastered by the artisans of the Maison. Thanks to an astonishing subtly graded “Clous de Paris” hobnail pattern, the depth of the lacquer reveals an inimitable guilloché motif.
Bathed in light and ruffled by the wind, waves come to life with the new Léman Grand Bleu. The delicately engraved background evokes the regular ripples of waves on the water's surface. A layer of translucent lacquer, reminiscent of the intense blue of the ocean depths, reveals these undulating reflections on the refined body of Léman Grand Bleu writing instruments. Lulled by the waves and the zephyr's song, lovers of fine writing will dive headlong into a thrilling odyssey with the new Léman Grand Bleu.
To further enhance the style of the Léman collection, Caran d’Ache master craftsmen have created an unusual association of materials. The new Léman Caviar creation is a subtle fusion of lacquer and guillochage techniques, revealing a fine undulating engraving that creates unexpected shimmering metallic reflections. Glossy, amber tinted bronze lacquer envelopes the silhouette of the pen, instilling a definite sense of caviar beads.
