It seems that many brands have the Aubergine color for this fall and winter. Has anyone gotten anything in BV's aubergine? What do you think of the color?

I'm glad u started this post. I was debating whether to get aubergine in the disco bag aka mini messenger or in pillow. It seems like a deep purple in pics. Haven't seen it irl. But it looks like it can wear dirt well.

I love Aubergine. Such a rich and luxurious color. I do feel like it is really just a fall / winter color, though.

I'm loving Aubergine and I personally feel it is a seasonal color but then again, I might be biased as my favourite color is purple.

To me it is on the more brownish end of purplish/red. I compared ebano with aubergine in the store and the aubergine looked like a richer brown/ very deep blood-red, comparatively. I don't see any blue tone at all. I feel it would suit a larger bag like the veneta, so well - so tempted by the pillow but I thought the colour was a bit wasted on a smaller bag.

I'm tempted by it in the turnlock clutch, but not sure I'd get enough use out of it I that style.

You might be right that it would be best in a larger style, like the Veneta or Roma.

thank you for posting picture
I like the color but for some reason I thought it would be more purple
it leans towards the browns
I feel it is a 3 seaon color
not for summer

It's a true eggplant which will work well with black, pink(!), navy, denim, charcoal, lighter grays and beiges but is definitely a fall and winter color. LIKE!

Based on some of your recent acquisitions, I could see this color totally being in your wheel house! What would you get?

Aubergine is my purple, BV making an Aubergine was supposed to be a prayer answered but I was bitterly disappointed. The aubergines (eggplants) that I cook are not that colour. They are not dark red-brown but dark black-purple. You just have to grab 'your' colours when you see them or walk away completely.

Aubergine is maybe a beautiful color but I am not too crazy about it. It's not purple enough for me. As papertiger mentioned in her post it is indeed a red-brown color with no hues of blue. Here is a small wallet in Aubergine on top of an Ebano bag.
