I was at balny earlier this afternoon when daphne called me to let me know my juane work was in. the juane is definitely not like the marigold. it is not really a bright yellow. the color reminded me of a sort of dullish dirty yellow. my friend thought it looked like a burnt mustard color. the work i saw had quite a lot of distressing in it. the side pieces were at least 2 shades darker than the front and back pieces. the leather on the juane reminded me of my anthra so the leather is close to 07 spring. the violet looked very close to the eggplant prolly a shade or two brighter. the compagnon i saw (the only thing they had) was VERY distressed!! it was pretty veiny!! reminded me a bit of the 06 leather except it was thicker. i hope the leather gets better with the next shipment as i was disappointed with the violet.
