As of Friday, Balenciaga NY had not received the Spring 2006 bags (emerald, rust and cognac). I was quoted an arrival date of March 15th. Since Aloha Rag and apparently Gretta Luxe (according to another member) have already received some bags, I'm hoping that they come in to Bal NY before the 15th.
The Neiman Marcus in NYC has not received their bags either. The SA that I spoke with there wasn't sure when they would arrive.
Thanks for the compliment on my screenname, spiralsnowman. I too can hardly wait to see the new colors in person.
I am unable to get into my previous post to edit it so I would like to issue a retraction here. I accidentially typed Neiman Marcus in my earlier post when what I meant to say is Barneys NY. There is no Neiman Marcus in NYC. Oops.
nope- no pics spiral, i should do a reconnaisance misson for them, maybe monday, hmmm. Their display is rpetty, floating chairs with purses riding the seat. The rust is bright! think red-orange, not reddish brown.
The emerald is interesting looking on the swatch too. Barneys NYC does not have a good selection on the selling floor. I was in there the other day and there was not a single Purse style in any color at all.
