New Leather For F/W 2006??

  1. Do any of you know if the leather will be different for F/W 2006?? I'm starting to want a Balenciaga city again, i bought a white twiggy and origin( olive green) city earlier this year and ended up returning them because the leather felt cheap to me.
     
  2. i heard the leather will be a bit thicker like the bags in the past but remain supple and distressing will be less severe
     
  3. Email directly from BNY...

    "We are starting to take orders for the New Fall/Winter Bag collection! As some of you may have heard the leather will be a touch thicker like our bags in the past. The bags will still be as supple and light as always. The distressing will not be as severe.
    Please also realize that though the colors may sound the same they're not, except for Black and White."
     
  4. Thanks SOCAL!!!! do you know when they are coming out? are the new emerald and cognac colors already the fall/winter collection with the thicker leather?
     
  5. ooh, this is so exciting. It sounds ike it's going to be somewhere in between the old and new leather? Can't wait.

     
  6. This is good news! But they keep saying they are taking pre-orders, and when I call to pre-order, they tell me "not yet" and they will call me when they actually start a list. Has anyone else heard this?
     
  7. OOOOHHH this is GREAT news!!! Thanks for sharing SoCal!! Can't wait to see them in person & hear reports from you PFers who pre-ordered
     
  8. WHOO HOOOOOOO! Can't wait to see those new bags!!!!
     
  9. ET, I think they already start preorder list... I've just emailed Sarah at BNY... but since I've got my indigo city bag, so, I decided not to preorder the new bag...

    Actually, in AtelierNaff blogspot, he/she post the sample of new bag for FW2006... looking from that pictures, I think it still looks the same as current new leather.. Here I attached the pics
