Initially shown in their Mia Cara range, they said this range of new colours will be added to their other organiser models over time and possibly to some of the non-organiser products as well.
Naturally the reactions from the people present and on the Gillio Facebook group have been very positive about the new range of colours.
I've created a collage of the new collection from the pre-launch photos:

There was time to look at the new colours and they were passed around and then there was a 'one more thing' moment....
We were shown a prototype of their new A6 size, which included various design elements that had been suggested at the Gillio Think Tank that was held in London last June.
They also showed us some new fly leaves with integral credit card slots, another suggestion from the Think Tank.

Availability of the Pastel Collection & other noveltiesThanks everyone for the wonderful responses to our new Pastel Collection!
We know you are all eager to find out when they will be available...
We only had a few prototypes of each colour, and many of them were sold at the store during the meet-up already. The last remaining prototypes will be sold on our website on Thursday, March 26th, at 11 o'clock CET.
The ‘full' release of the Pastel Collection will be around the end of May, in Pocket, Medium and A5 Mia Cara. Other styles and sizes will be available later on, once more leather is produced. Pre-ordering is not possible.
We were happy to see that the A6 Compagna (with full length back pocket and removable ring protectors) was also a success! The design will now be evaluated and ‘tweaked' to perfection. We expect to be producing it by July.
And, last but not least: loose flyleaves! We have different models - with pen-loop, with a zipper, with credit card pockets... They will be available in Pocket, A6, Medium and A5 size and in different colours. They will be available around July as well.
Thanks again for all your enthusiasm and we are looking forward to a colourful summer with our new epoca leathers!
A big thank you to Ben, Tom Van Haelen and the rest of the Gillio team for hosting such an exciting event.
