So, the other day ... I'm looking over my collection, as well as trying to figure out what I [still] want, when I came across the Pantone Top 10 Colors post on Ateliernaff (http://ateliernaff.blogspot.com/2007/02/somebody-didnt-get-memo.html). 'Lo and behold, I looked at the colors and thought ... WOW ... it appears as though Balenciaga has actually "come through" with some of these ... check it out: Carafe = Marron, perhaps???. Burnt Ochre = maybe the '07 F/W "Terre di Sienne"?? Chili Pepper = how about the '07 F/W "Paprika"?? Stargazer = looks kind of like the '07 Anthracite to me! Shale Green = well, this one is kind of tough because while the Vert D'eau is in this hue, it's much lighter in color. Dusk = looks like the '07 Periwinkle/Bleu Glacier! Green Moss = okay, have to go back to the archives for this one ... how about the '06 Light Olive/Origan?? Lemon Curry = can anyone say '07 Jaune/Marigold !!! Cashmere Rose = definitely back to the archives on this one too ... darker than the '06 Pale Rose/Rosa Antica (not pink enough for the '05 Bubblegum!) Purple Wine = how 'bout the eagerly anticipated '07 Violet/Grape ... YEAH BABY!!! As we would say here in New England ... wicked pissah!!!
