In their usual helpful way, the colors have been named slightly differently in French and Italian. The English translations are from Balenciaga NY via a helpful reader.

Rouge Vif
Bleu Roi
Greige

Marrone Scuro
Cuoio Chiaro
PavoneEnglish
Top row
Black
Mushroom (truffle)
Forest Green (dark)
Oxblood (very dark burgundy)
Middle row
White
Fire Engine Red
Blueberry
Cement (greyish beige)
Bottom row
Olive Brown
Light Caramel
Blue/Grey

The "blue india/pavone" swatch is labelled "bleu gris" (blue-grey) on the swatch board. There has been a rumour of a "petrol" color - but now I'm not sure if it refers to this blue or not. And can I just say happily: more chocolate (marron) !! ...and sadly: grenat = bordo'? I was dreaming of a very browny red... Well, we can't have everything. Chocolate!! Scratch all that - with the English color names from BalNY, it sounds like the dark red will be browny after all, and that the marron won't necessarily be chocolate.
