Did anyone else see this there? I only got a glimpse of the tag, but it was in fact a 2009 3. My SA said she unpacked it this morning and it was the only one they got. I had her check in the system for more stock, info, etc. but it didn't return any quantities. The system calls it 'lilac'. Anyone have intel on the color? I would describe it as a more muted than the '04 version...

This is exciting oh my! I love Lilac! :nuts: Could you get your SA to send some pictures?

Is it similar to 06 Lilac?

Hmm... there's no Lilac color in F/W 09. Do you have a picture?

^ Maybe the new pink looks like Lilac! :nuts: Okay.. That doesn't make sense but I'm just so hoping Bal will make lilac again. Sigh

Jira, sweetlust - i've never seen '06 lilac in person, but from everyone else's pictures the color I saw was more muted and blueish. Unfortunately, my work issued bberry doesn't have a camera so I couldnt take a pic.

Here is a picture of my F/W 09 Bubblegum:



It looks basically the same in person, maybe a tiny tad lighter.

You know ... one would think that if a store carries Balenciaga, they would "know" their stuff ... as in, they would have the correct name(s) associated with the Year/Season!!!
