so believe it or not, DHL LOST the bags that were supposed to be on their way from Paris to balNY. so the only bags we got to preview are the magenta in GH gold, ocean with SGH in work, and violet in GGH in hobo style. the magenta looks exactly the same as 2005. the ocean is a very pretty blue. not too dark not too light. right in the middle. the violet- is much lighter than eggplant. the leather on it wasn't that great. a bit too shiny and slightly crackly. i put myself on the list for steel, marigold and ocean. we didn't see anything in marigold or steel, so we went by the photos they had and swatch colors. but i'm so glad i got to meet so many ppl from the forum! i'm sure someone will post a group shot we took outside balenciaga!
