I'm on vacation in Maui and wanted to mention some of the S/S 08 bags I saw in the BV store here. They cater a lot to Japanese visitors. Repeatedly the SA told me certain styles or colors are only sold in Japan and Hawaii, not mainland US. There was lots of Lotus(very pale pink), Glacier (blue). Both med. and large Cabats in the Pastel mix (Venizio or something similar); the oxidized Cabat; a metallic silvery-bronze Veneta. Cabats in the black-multi from Resort collection. Strangely, they tried to tell me something was Carmino when it wasn't--it appeared to be Cassis. At that point, I wasn't sure how accurate their info was. It sure was fun looking at the new bags, since I live so far from a BV store. I hate missing what's going on here, but I needed to get away. I'll be back middle of next week and if I get anything new, I'll post pics!
