I was told this needed a thread of it's own in addition to where I posted it and I agree! Ok, I was at NM in White Plains today and bought this! It is called "lilac" new for 2009...They only had one in the store but 3 in the warehouse...No one seems to know if this is exclusive to NM or what the info is on this color. But figured lots of people would like to see pics!:smile:

Thanks for posting the pics! How true to life is the color? It looks like it has more of a lavendar undertone whereas the '04 lilac is more pinkish?

It is absolutely beautiful! I agree with tresjoliebags; it looks lavender.

Thanks for doing a reveal :flowers:

As best I've been able to find out, this is an exclusive to NM, only comes in the city, and there are only a handful. It makes absolutely no sense to me, since they could sell a lot of them, but there it is. It just arrived out of nowhere and nobody seemed to know anything. But it's real and really pretty, I think.

P.S. Just in case anyone might take this in the wrong way, I was not suggesting at all that this lovely bag might not be real, but that there was confusion about whether there even was a "new lilac," whether NM got in some 2006 lavender bags and didn't know any better, or whether they sent out misleading pics of the new framboise, etc.
