Something Blue and Something New...Caran d'Ache + Klein Bleu + Limited Editions

The unique Caran d’Ache + Klein Blue® collection reveals Art in its purest form. Mixing its colour expertise to passionate craftsmen with unique know-how, la Maison Caran d’Ache is paying a tribute to one of the most astonishing artists of his generation: Yves Klein.

World-famous for his monochromes, Klein grabbed hold of the blue colour and its extremely saturated ultramarine shade, "the most perfect expression of blue". The artist knows how to reveal all its singularity, its matt and luminous radiance through an ingenious process: the International Klein Blue® (IKB).

What intimately links Caran d'Ache to Yves Klein is the values they share, such as their fascination for colour and passion for pure and powerful pigments. When the colour designer meets the blue infinite, it is a celebration of creativity in all its forms and for all uses.

Klein cultivates the most diverse modes of expression. He writes whether with a fountain pen or a ballpoint pen, to embellish his work, publish books and articles. He draws either with a pencil or with a graphite pencil, to adorn his travel notebooks with sketches. This is why no less than seven iconic Caran d’Ache products have been revisited, including: desk top sharpener849 ballpoint pen and fixpencil giving rise to a unique limited collection. A collection where the beauty and power of the infinite ultramarine are reaffirmed by the quality and creativity of Caran d'Ache.

Shakespeare’s sonnets are arguably the most famous expressions of love and desire in history and for good reason: who doesn’t want to be compared to a summer’s day? But far from being the first to entice a lover using beautiful penmanship; love letters can be traced over 5000 years ago to Indian Mythology.
