I'm trying to decide on the color of my first Balenciaga. Has anyone actually seen any of these colors in person? If so, would you say that these are good colors for Spring/Summer or all seasons? (These colors are from Aloharag.)

Encre/ Ink (Saw it on atelier.naff. Is it blue or black?:shame: :lol: )
Bleuet/Dark Avio Blue (Is it too dark for Spring/Summer?)
Lilas/Liliac (I saw this color on atelier.naff and liked it...but I'd much rather have a blue bag. Still, it looks interesting.)

If you've seen all three colors, which is your favorite?

Colors:
Spring: Black, White, Grey (Medium), Ink (almost Black with Eggplant tones), Bleu (Medium Dusty Blue), Origan (Oregano), Lilac(Lavender), Rose (Antique Pink) Summer Collection: Emerald Green (like the Stone), Rust (Orange-Red),
Tan(Camel)

I really like the lilac, and bags don't always have to be so dark and gloomy !
I totally agree; I really don't want a dark and gloomy colored bag. :lol: But I don't want a really bright "look-at-me" color, either. So far, I'm liking the lilac a lot, too.

I have the Cornflower medium/city. This shade of blue is great for all four seasons! (I'm wanting to get a second one in the orange/red or even maybe the emerald. hmmmm.

I personally favor apple green, but maybe that's because it's the color of my new B-bag ;) I agree with Kat, the cornflower blue looks like it would be perfect for all four seasons. The origan color is a nice neutral green that I think would go with a lot of different outfits.

Ladies, do you know what I'd really love? A Twiggy or a City Bag in a neutral color, like an orangish-brown or a tan. I just don't know the name of the color. If I don't live near a Balenciaga, is it possible to order it directly from one of their stores? After the big Chloe Paddington ordeal, I just dont feel that safe ordering it from somewhere other than the actual store. (I just emailed Balenciaga in NY, BTW.:lol:)

I would call Bal NY - My SA was named Joseph and he was super helpful; I asked, "what colors Twiggy do you have", he tells me but also explains the color. For example, he says, "...and origan, which is a mossy green three shades lighter than the olive". You see, if you call they will explain it to you; that is their job. Call them tomorrow; don't wait for an email reply. :smile:
