Filofax 2012 - Changes to the range

Some interesting news this morning about the changes in the range...
"There's a few shocks in the list of Filofax 2012 organiser retirements; Osterley Brown & Songbird stand out to me but it's also going to be goodbye from the Chameleon, Regency, Enigma (nobody got that one in any sense of the word) and some colour retirements in Malden, Domino & Apex.
Some exciting new lines arriving in March and, as the legendary singer James Taylor says, every time you make a new friend you need to say goodbye to an old one - or else you get friend build-up..."
This is all as yet unconfirmed from Filofax UK... but it looks accurate if you take in to account what has been on sale at low prices...

  1. Noooo I love the Chameleons!! And I hope if they are getting rid of some of the Malden colours, that they will bring out some new colours! I am surprised about the Osterley Brown and Songbird, and I know a lot of people will be sad about the Regency, although the Enigma...not so sure!
    But if they're going to do anything, they should get rid of ALL of the Apex range!!
    I'm looking forward to seeing (and probably buying) the new filofaxes!!

  3. I think I must be the only person that owns an Enigma and I won that!!! But I do like it as its so soft....but v sad about the Songbird (may have to make an emergency purchase before it disappears)

    However always exciting to see what new ranges they can come up with......

  4. I can't believe they r getting rid of some of the apex!!!!!! I mean, come on, it was the years most talked about "Filofax" if that is what they still insist on calling it. I may have to keep mine now. It may become a rare thing of the future.
    Maybe my tonsils are distorting my thinking patterns. ;) xx

  5. Oh, I better look out for the Purple personal Songbird for my DD then! I'm surprised about the Regency, I thought that was quite popular? Sorry to see the Chameleon leave, but so happy with my raspberry pocket Chameleon! It's softer by the day, I swear!

  6. I'm surprised that they're (supposedly) removing some of the newer models like the Regency and Enigma. And I agree that if they're going to retire some of the Malden colors that they bring out some new ones.

  7. @Jotje - I think people like the Regency, but I don't know how many people actually own one because of the price. Maybe Filofax should revamp prices rather than styles - just a thought. ;)

  8. I'm sure this is driven purely by sales figures and nothing else. I am one of those obviously few people that actually love the enigma, but it's just too expensive!

  9. PS - I really wish they would stop with these silly pockets on the back of the luxury binders. Just makes them more bulky than they need to be. Also why not some more binders with gold coloured rings?

  10. I am not surprised about the enigma, they are running out of hides. There can't be that many cows in the world that have that bad of skin disease!

  11. re Enigma...I think that who wants and can afford a luxury binder, would probably go for different brand.
    Would be interesting to see what are the most selling items.

  13. I was in the Filofax store on Conduit Street on Wednesday and the really helpful sales assistant showed my friend and I the filos on sale and this included all Deco's. I asked if the Deco is being discontinued and she said yes.

  14. @ Imy - I am chanting as I type

    @ crofter - I thought they were just made from roadkill... maybe they will bring them back in the summer :o)

    Looking forward to seeing what they bring out though - would be good to see some new (and nicer) inserts, and the today marker from the Olympic binders for sale by itself - I love it x

  15. @Just-Jenny Oh no!!! Do NOT discontinue the Deco... please! They are the best!!!

  16. @ LJ Good one, must have been the same vehicle, the severe bruising is so uniform!

  17. Wow! Discontinuing the chameleon and deco as well? That hurts! :/

  18. The red Enigma goes for 120 AUD, in addition there is a 20% discount and (I believe) free international shipping.
    It is almost for free ;)
