    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.

    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.
