Every year, LAMY releases a special edition color of the popular AL-star fountain pen. Each is produced for a limited time, and is highly sought after by collectors.
Here we'll give you a visual look back at all of the annual special edition LAMY AL-star fountain pens that have been available in the United States, at least as of 2011 when we first began carrying LAMY fountain pens.
2023: lilac and petrol
whitesilver is a bright, glossy silver color, complemented by chrome trim and a silver nib.
2021: azure and cosmic
LAMY released two different colors of the AL-star special edition for 2021.
turmaline is a very striking green-turquoise color. This was accompanied by a matching turquoise ink which was slightly more on the green side.
This bronze orange colored fountain pen was also accompanied by a matching ink.
This was a hot one! The fuchsia vibrantpink fountain pen was accompanied by a hot pink ink that featured added shimmer in the bottled ink version.
A true turquoise color. This fountain pen was also accompanied by a matching pacific turquoise ink which was nearly identical to their regular turquoise ink color.
2016: charged green
charged green was a lime green that leaned towards the olive side.
One of the most popular colors, copperorange was a deep yet vibrant orange. Also accompanied by matching ink.
This aptly named bluegreen, a blue-leaning green, later became a regular edition color, then was discontinued again.
2013: black and pearl
Two colors for 2013. The matte black fountain pen with black nib and trim is now a regularly offered color!
pearl was an elegant white-gold color with silver trim.
2011: ruby red
Our very first special edition LAMY AL-star color as a LAMY retailer. ruby red was a vibrant red, with a hint of brown, accompanied by silver trim.
There are several other special edition colors that preceded these, including the silver-blue, coffee, and more, but we weren't a LAMY retailer at the time these were produced. Yet somehow our own Brian Goulet has managed to get his hands on one of each! ;)
