Léman Grand Bleu

Léman Grand Bleu

A combination of wind and waves

The Léman Grand Bleu Collection draws its inspiration from the sapphire reflections on the clear waters of Lake Geneva as they are gently rocked by the wind. Awestruck by the immaculate beauty of the eternal blue, the master craftsmen at Caran d’Ache have distilled their know-how in the fields of colour and guillochage, combining an original pattern and an original colour.

Bathed in light, the swell of the water rocked by the wind comes to life in the finely engraved “wave” motif, reminiscent of a breeze caressing the surface of the water. The pattern covers the entire body of the writing instrument, transcending its curves. The brilliant, translucent cerulean lacquer encompasses the pen, pierced by rolling reflections of the guillochage. Decorating the tips of these writing instruments is the Caran d’Ache emblem, a hexagon punctuated in the centre. It is coated with the same blue lacquer as the rest of the pen.

The colour of travel

Holding the new Léman Grand Bleu in your hand is nothing less than an invitation to travel and to recall precious moments spent contemplating the endless motion of the waves. A haven of peace and happiness, these rare moments are captured in the refined style of the Léman Collection from Caran d’Ache. Thanks to its architecture, its meticulously-designed details and an improved balance of the volumes, the Léman range offers enhanced writing comfort and pleasure.
