I may be in the minority here but I love Anthracite with GH and it goes with almost everything. Whereas, the violet is going to be more limited to what you can where it with. They both are stunning. I love Anthra so much that I have it in RH and GH. Good luck deciding.
I love anthra - it's my only bbag (I have an rh city), but I'm waiting for a grape first as my "pop" color! The anthra so far has been the only bag that I've liked w/GH. I do think the anthra is more of a neutral, so it's a bit more versatile than the grape will be.
Thank you everyone for all those precious opinions! Seems like Violet wins the vote! I actually have received my Anthra City but one of the handle is faded, and it really annoy me.. So thinking of exchange for another color. Here's the dillemma..
