So glad the color made your heart sing, jburgh! Congrats! I knew from the first time I saw it at the trunk show that Violet will be a popular color around here.

BTW, there are some Violet flats here (apart from the drivers/moccassins). But they're not in the usual nappa intrecciato style of the classic ballerinas. They're made of suede + leather + a little of that PVC material. I don't have a photo & it is not on the website.

It would be awesome if the Sloane were in Violet. And were it in original Montaigne, I'd be saving my pennies.

Yes, it is mine and a real keeper.

Not too deep for me, but very saturated - here it is in front of a shade in a north facing window.
It's beautiful!!! Now I wish they have it for veneta

Thank you everyone. It has been raining hard for the past 4 days, so I took that opportunity to treat the bag with AppleGarde protectant. Even though I've treated nearly every bag (except nubuck, and exotics) with AppleGarde, it still is a nail biting experience. The Cabat is fully dried and aired out, so I can now start using her. What I like best about nappa is how you can "train" the sides to push in, giving the bag a more wedge look.

If you have not seen Mousse's thread, she bought the Violet lambskin bag with that great drummed texture and contrasting woven stitched PVC strips. This Violet color is beautiful. I see that Ferragamo has a dark violet color for SS2012, and it is also gorgeous.

It's so so so pretty. Too bad I bought a BV in sapphire last fall. Is it very similar to violet?
