Paris is for pen lovers. Thanks to Waterman’s special edition fountain pen collection inspired by the very much en vogue Ombre style, you don’t need to get your passport stamped to write and sketch under the glow of The City of Light.

The vibrant black and white designs of the Ombres et Lumières Collection take inspiration from the mesmerizing lights of Paris by night. This collection proudly expresses sophisticated style and timeless Parisian chicness. A hypnotic and graphic pattern captures the timeless elegance of the black & white duo with high gloss lacquer and luminescent silk screen designs.

Here’s a quick overview of the collection:

The Waterman Ombres Et Lumières Collection is expected to arrive in the USA in early April 2015.

Pricing for the fountain pen version will be $130 for the Hemisphere, $185 for the Expert, $200 for the Perspective, and $385 for the gold-nib Carene. Our price would be 20% off the MSRP.

We’ve been contemplating carrying Waterman pens regularly on our site for a while now but just haven’t pulled the trigger yet. We’ve special ordered them from time-to-time as an authorized Waterman retailer, and we really like them. Brian regularly has a Carene in his daily carry collection.

What do you think – do you like Waterman’s take on the ombre style? Any other Waterman pens strike your fancy?
