Summer Trends 2017 Edition

Summer Trends 2017 Edition

Hello everyone,

Colors, prints, finishes... This summer has brought along many trends! On today's post we invite you to discover all of them and in which of our products you will be able to find them.

This summer, keep it trendy!


Vibrant and bold, the color of the Sun is one of the main trends this 2017. People's favorite tone? Pantone's Primrose Yellow. However, this will not be the only tone we will be seeing this summer, in mono block or subtle trims yellow will be everywhere!

A black watch with yellow decorations will combine perfectly with all of your outfits giving them an original and different touch. For writing lovers, yellow will help you to spread happiness, joy and optimism. This is why, it has become one of our favorites for the season.

Featured products: Eterna Super Kontiki Limited Edition, Aurora 88 Anniversary Limited Edition fountain pen, Montblanc Sartorial case and Leutchtturm 1917 notebook.


Pantone chose Greenery as the color of the year however pink is winning the battle. From shocking pink to salmon we can see it in buildings, fashion and decor.

The reason for this is maybe the illusion and enthusiasm that pink releases. This summer invites us to see "la vie en rose"and our writing instruments are all about it.

Discover our selection: Sailor Professional Gear Slim fountain pen, Montblanc Muses Poudrè fountain pen, Montegrappa Felicita rollerball, Leuchtturm 1917 notebook and Pilot Iroshizuku Kosumosu inkwell.

Flower power

Summer is already here but spring will be present all year. Floral prints are one of this summer's trends and we love it! If you add to this that oriental and origami are also in trend we find the perfect combination.

Brands like Namiki and Platinum create every year unique pieces with Japanese inspired designs involving flowers and shapes. We highlight Namiki's Flower Basket edition and Platinum's Sakura Maki-e.

The perfect accessory for these fountain pens? Diamine's Floral Set.


In all colors, embossments and graphics. Stripes are trendy this summer!

From the all time classic navy style in colors like red and blue to other color combinations like green, black and white... Our brands have also chosen stripes for their designs.

S.T Dupont launched a navy collection of luxury lighters, a perfect accessory for the summer. In writing instruments we stand out the iconic Pelikan and Graf Von Faber-Castell Classic striped patterns. A last example of this trend is the Montegrappa DC Comics Penguin pen.


Metallic finishes are also in fashion. In gold, rose gold or silver this shades will give an original and elegant touch to your style.

Resembling Saturday Night Fever and the 80's, this year metallic finishes are present in inkwells, writing instruments, accessories, watches and even bags & travel. 

Our favorites?

Leuchtturm 1917 Metallic Edition notebooks, the Ligne 2 luxury lighter by S.T Dupont, Fisher pens and the Diamine Shimmering collection.


It has been said that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication and this summer this becomes a rule. Mondaine and Braun always create functional and simple pieces making them the perfect example for this summer trend.
