  1. Morning everyone , just in case any of you were interested in something gunmetal I thought I'd post the following, esp as some gunmetal items might soon be appearing in the outlets (My friend in York tells me they also have a g/m Bays)

    I've attached some more photos of mine in natural light as they give a better representation of the colour (and I like showing it off!) I think electric lights make it look more brownish

    I think if you consider a gunmetal be aware that as it's put on to different leathers the shine might vary. My antony is a brighter shade that the bays (see family photo thread), the inside of that is black whereas the Bays is brown - I like the variability but just wanted to give you a heads up in case anyone bought a gunmetal bag and expected it to be brighter

  3. Very nice colour!!
     
  4. gunmetal looks really nice - such a nice take on black and ultra glam!! thanks for this!
     
  5. ^^Totally agree. I wonder if you still have to spray or being Gunmetal means kind of already protected??
     
  6. oooh beautiful bags!!:woohoo: Im loving the gunmetal leather :yes:
     
  7. My avatar is a gunmetal Ledbury (my 1st Mulberry) and I love the shade.

  8. The photos look great.

    Forgive my ignorance but does the gunmetal finish wear away at all or is it permanent?
     
  9. serene - yes, your smithfield is gunmetal. i saw that exact bag in bloomies a while back, i love it!! I got the oak one later on sale but the gunmetal is fab!
     
  10. Gorgeous bags ladies :biggrin: is an interesting colour, would love to see an Antony in gunmetal.
     
  11. my avatar is also gunmetal.
    Quite a bronzy shade, I also have the matching purse.
     
  12. The large Mabel I've just sent back was called gunmetal by the SA but it was a much bronzier shade then I've seen previously...in future I'll always see a gunmetal bag IRL before purchase because I think there is a huge variation in this shade between leathers.
     
  13. I love the gunmetal too - i have a ledbury and she is fab! gorgeous bags on this thread ladies :tup:

  14. Gunmetal is such a beautiful colour, and look at all the lovely bags that you all have posted!

    I used to have a gunmetal Antony (since sold) and it was an amazing, dark pewter shade of gunmetal. I also have a small Zinia in the same colour, gunmetal on black leather.

    I wasn't aware that they also made gunmetal bags on brown leather, and that they turn out to be more bronzy in colour. Interesting!
     
  15. That's a beauty Rascal!
