tomato is a bright red with very very slight orange...like a bright poppy red. the sa said rouge vif is a blue tone red. the leather on the tomato bags were shiny new and lovely. nordstrom sacramento has a really gorgeous city, but tomato is not the red for me. i also saw a first and day. i can't remember if i saw the brief.
Live~ there was only one tomato bag I saw in the day style. It was really pretty. I thought at first glance it was a rouge vif but then realized it was tomato. The leather was pretty good. A little "glazed" looking but once broken in it would be fine. No veins or distressing on the bag there.
i saw the tomato with GSH in the work and a RH tomato in the first. compared to the vif, the tomato is brighter. the way i see it tomato really is like a tomato while vif looks more strawberry colored.
the undertones on it are very very slight... tomato is a darker vermilion.
livethelake, if you love a bright red, you will love tomato. it is pretty!
