I've seen the eggplant recently at Nordstrom and in a boutique. The ones in the boutique was glazed, but pretty, very similar to the raspberry last fall but less pink. The one at Nordstrom was not glazed, so I'm confused. Also there was a reveal recently of an eggplant that wasn't glazed. Maybe there are two versions?
I have a mini 5 zip and the color looks very different than other eggplants I've seen. It's lighter and the zipper tracks are darker. The leather is quite thin and is soft like flannel. There's a smidge of glaze in photos and certain lights, but not like the pictures. Ebags has good pictures of what the eggplant 5 zip looks like.
