I haven't seen the purple that is out now in irl (the one that miacillin has in medium flap). I have the Balenciaga in amethyst, and comparing it in the pictures they look the same. For those of you who have seen the purple and is familiar with the amethyst of Balenciaga, are they the same? I want to order the purple but if it's the same with the balenciaga then I think I'll get another color. TIA!

yes, it's from the fw08. They sometimes call it magenta. Thanks loveaddict! I was actually comparing the purple maxi in ebay and the balenciaga in amethyst and they seemed similar to me. I guess the picture in ebay is not true to its color.
