Was at Barney's last night, where the S/A showed me the new "purple"-colored bag. Purple ????? ... didn't look Purple to me!! It was a very strange color ... looked like black with purple undertones (all I could think of was a bad black & blue!). Nothing like the Purple (plum) color that Sarah Jessica Parker was carrying around a few seasons ago. The worse part ... obviously, Balenciaga is still using the same leather manufacturer as the past season. I was hoping that they would go back to the "old" manufacturer ... boo hiss :evil: :sad2: !
