FYI-

I don't know about the other colors but if anyone is getting an "ink/encre" bag, I'd make sure you get your SA to pick one with nice leather. I picked up the ink city from Neiman Marcus yesterday and the leather was terrible. I returned it an hour later. The leather was very thin, very stiff, super shiny, and had these whitish waxy veins all over the place that is suppose to be natural distressing. It did not look like it was worth $1200 in my opinion.

Good luck everyone!

I saw the dark blue yesterday at Barneys BH (they have it in Twiggy and city). It is very very dark, but it is sooo beautiful, esp. in the Twiggy shape.
