So the question is, does it really go with all black?
And since it's not black, it's kinda tricky to pair it with other colours too eh? I love the colour, but I'm just not sure how it goes with anything other than purplish/reddish clothes.

The Pomme was easy for me because it's red, and red is supposed to 'pop' if ya know what I mean. Is the Amarante supposed to pop or is it supposed to be understated like black, but then it doesn't blend in with black, KWIM? Have I confused anybody besides myself? lol...maybe it's the cold meds talking...

^^ i know, i understand what you mean, i felt the same too... to me, purple seems doesnt go well with black coz it will be black-black, either you cant notice the bag or the clothes, KWIM :P... but i think i'll still get the amarante, maybe i'll only wear it with blue/white/flower-green/pink floral dress and jeans.

I don't think so. Honestly, this isn't really much of a purple. While it looks black when you look at it straight on, it's more of a dark black cherry color when the light hits it so I think it'll go great with a lot of different colors!

i think it would look nice. i have a coach purse that's a dark purple and i would wear it with black. amarante is probably a little darker than my coach, but i'd probably still wear it with black. i think the maroon/purple undertones would look really nice with it. plus anything black/purple/maroon i think looks hot together. but we'll find out!

Vuittonamour- I wonder if we have the same Coach bag! I have the patent leather Gallery Tote in mahogany- it's like a deep burgundy/brown/a little reddish in sunlight. I wear it with black all the time, and pretty much any other color, it goes great. The amarante looks similar to me, but a little more on the "grapey" side, so I think I'll have to see it IRL before I can decide if it would go well with a lot of colors.

This is the best description I have heard so far.

I think because the color is so dark that it will go with a ton of outfits.

I like makeupmama's idea of pairing it with the Azur... that sounds delicious!

I would definitely hang a cles on my azur speedy, but if I got something larger, say a Reade PM, I would wear it with white, beige, gold, any shade of tan, blue shades, and probably black, but not all black (i'm thinking jeans and a nice black top).
