A Yank in SoCAL
  • Nero = Black
  • Anthracite = Dark Grey w/ Blue undertones (probably the same/similar to the '08 Anthracite)
  • Charbon = translates to "Coal", however - the '08 Charbon is more like a Dark Brown
  • Pommier = translates to "Apple Tree"; maybe an Apple Green color? :tup:
  • Galet = ???
  • Tempete = translates to "Storm"; maybe a Dark Blue (maybe like the '08 Marine?)
  • Ciel = translates to "Sky"; maybe a Sky Blue?
  • Raisin = translates to "Grape"; maybe a Dark Violet w/ Red undertones? :tup:

Another season of antra, charbon and another purple?! :wtf::sleepy:
The only color remotely exciting is the apple tree. Hopefully, the main collection color will be better. Would be great if there are colors similar to Lilac 06, Grey 05, Olive, deep Cobalt, Caramel 05! Balenciaga, are you listening at all? Sorry for the rant.
