for now, i am very curious about the bleu roi. i hope it doesn't come out TOO DARK, as in the photo in ateliernaff, since it looks more midnight/indigo blue already.

i wonder if the bleu roi and the rouge VIF are the same shades as the Hermes ones...

anyway, has balenciaga produced a different shade of royal blue in the past?

I like the reddd... If the leather is much better in the Fall.. I might get one..

I just look at the Spring/Summer color b-bag.. I'm so dissapointed in them,.. Hopefully things will get better...

I'm curious to see how the Grenat/Garnet looks. I'm thinkin' it might have my name written all over it (hoping its a beautiful deep red).

When will the Autumn/Winter bags come out? When do stores usually start accepting pre-orders?

greige - khaki
truffe - chocolate w/ olive undertones
sapin - deep forest green
grenat - blood
blanc - white
rouge vif - true red
bleu roi - royal blue
noir - black

^my interpretation of the swatches.

I like the grege i think- i would love a sickly yellow/brown bag. :-P Maybe it will be a deep gold? that would be niiiice...

but I'm also really drawn to the grenat, i'm still hoping it will be a plumy red/purple. I would flip my lid for that color.

Bleu roi for me! I'm a sucker for navy/dark blue colors, and I don't have one in my bbag collection (yet!)
