I'm on the hunt for a color similar to either Balenciaga Seafoam, 04 turquoise or Maldives:

Maldives:

So - i found a few ones that are similar, namely HH Lagoon and RM Mint.

Mint:

I know that all of these colors will photograph differently, so i'd like to know which is most similar (esp. to the 04 turquoise or maldives) irl. OR can you think of any other brand/color that would be a better match??

My end game is to wind up with a bag similar to the color of Larimar:

Thanks for your help! :smile:

I'm not familiar with RM's Mint color, but Lagoon is more of a turquoise-green color. It's not as light as the colors of the other bags you posted. Here's a pic of my Lagoon clutch wallet, for reference:

i wonder if any bag has veining in it the way balenciaga does? (but not bal, something less $$$). the veining makes it look more...like water.

also - it's so hard to tell in pics how it will play off irl. i wish i could see the HH and RM irl first. :sad:

PS Nishita - the red and lagoon together are tdf! what is that red called?

satine, it's Tango Red and it's a really pretty red in real life. tPF album uploads do no justice to anything and have a tendency to look a bit dingy because of how much they compress the files. This what Tango Red really looks like!



(That was taken with the same camera, in the same lighting, with the same settings seconds after the other picture. It's just uploaded elsewhere to avoid the horrible compression... Lagoon also looks 1000x times better and far more accurate here, too.)
