*Antic Cervo Leather* - Everything You Need to Know and More!

  1. Hi there Prada Girls!!

    Ok, since there's been *so* much buzz about the Antic Cervo leather, I'm starting a thread where we can ALL post our pix of our Antic Cervo bags. As far as I know there are 2 finishes in the Antic Cervo line... they are:

    1. Cacao -- From the Fall/Winter line 2006

    2. Natural -- From the Spring 2007 line


    In the Cacao line, I'm going to post 3 of the same bags... of which ALL 3 look entirely different. The criteria for each is as such:

    1. Leather Quality
    2. Leather Pebbling
    3. Color

    So please join in and post your pix if you own either the Cacao or the Natural. Please feel free to correct me if I've left anything out. :graucho:

    Looking forward to seeing all your pix!!! :p

  4. 2nd Bag... *Another* Reputable Dept Store Purchase...

    Completely different color, different leather (lots of pebbling)

    Notice the 1st bag below the 2nd in the pic and the color difference.

  5. pad, how about putting the two or three side by side, or on top of each other with extreme close up to REALLY see the variety? i found that this is helpful when the balenciaga gals tried to compare leather texture and dye variation.
     
  6. 3rd Bag... from Bluefly...

    again, these are all posted here for comparison of color and leather differences.

    Hi... Yes, I think you're right. I thought the CACAO was the BROWN, but that's probably why these 3 bags are different colors.

  14. Please Note...

    All the pics I just posted were photographed indoors at night in incandescent lighting. I will try to take pics during the morning light tomorrow. They may look different.
     
  15. Finally got home and got to caress my new bag! Here are some pics. Some with flash and some without.

    I LOVE IT! I especially love the color and finish of the leather in the front of the bag.

    Whaddayall think?
