Okay ladies - Just received a call from my favorite MJ SA in the San Francisco boutique (Tiffany) and here's some updates on the new stuff: Spring/Summer 2008 Soft Calf Classics colors: Merlot A bit redder than Bordeaux Rose medium pink Navy Medium blue , not midnight, not bright Putty (dark grey) has dark glazing (unlike Resort 07 purpley grey with white glazing) Brown Chalk This is a bright white. Brighter than the resort Yogurt ****No Black in the Soft Calf lines for Spring Summer 2008 Blakes: The soft calf comes with the knot on handles and NO SUEDE. All lining is now that coated linen. All same color. Also, no suede in zip clutches. It's her understanding that MJ is discontinuing suede in their bags/SLGs. No knot Blakes: Acid tangerine Also available in patent colors with nickel hardware SA Tiffany: (415)362-6500 works Weds to Sunday. Side note: No remaining black Christys in MJ system (a friend looking for one so I checked) She's sending me some pics later today of the Merlot and grey which I'll post.
