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. French Top row
Grenat Middle row
Greige Bottom row
Blue IndiaItalian Top row
Bordo' Middle row
Frigio Bottom row
PavoneEnglish Top row
Forest Green (dark)
Oxblood (very dark burgundy) Middle row
Fire Engine Red
Cement (greyish beige) Bottom row
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.
