Newly Discovered 2003 Color: MIDNIGHT Blue

  1. NEWS FLASH: previously undocumented rare, old color from Fall/Winter 2003!!

    This Balenciaga leather First/Classique bag passes all of my authentication tests and is such a dark blue it's nearly black in some light but most definitely a dark blue!

    The zipper fabric tape is navy blue and I think the best way to describe this color is Midnight Blue which looks great with the pewter hardware.

    Here are some pictures of this F/W '03 Midnight Blue vs. F/W '05 Black:
