Conducted a b-bag "inspection" at Barneys BH yesterday. Their F06 stock was relatively light (most colors were available in first style...including rouge as of Thursday morning). The city was available in cement and black (these had to be pulled from the "back"). The black leather for F06 is a bit different than the leather used in F05 (just different really...a bit thicker, softer...but I am just as thrilled with my F05 black city...no need to replace her). I have now heard from multiple Barneys BH SAs that city bags should be pre-ordered if one wants to guarantee availability in summer/early fall as not many are reaching the floor and those that do are sold almost immediately. (Perhaps more will appear on the floor after early frenzy for F06 bags dies down in LA?) BBH had a grenat day bag on display, but I did not like it as much the grenat day they sent me previously (one on display seemed to have more of the shiny, crackle texture...my preference is for the matte leather). My "critique"...the leather on all first bags I have seen to date is nice (What is it about the leather on the small bags? Too bad the bag is too small for me...) The leather on the day bags varies...sometimes more matte...sometimes a more shiny, crackle texture (the truffe I returned to NM, a blueberry at NM, the grenat at BBH)... The leather on the work bags I have seen so far is nice (grenat work, sapin work, black work). The cement city at Barneys had nice (for me soft, more matte) leather, but was too grey. I would love it if the color had just a bit more brown in it. Is was a very nice bag, but too light for me (would look great on others!). A couple of the truffe bags at Barneys had soft, more matte leather, but others I have seen had more of the shiny, crackle texture. I have not seen a matte blueberry bag yet...my weekender (yes, still mine as of this moment) is a bit more shiny, crispy than I prefer (gorgeous color, but I would so love the texture of the rouge...). Given my preferred texture and tend toward darker colors, my favorites this season are rouge (loving the twiggy!), grenat (sometimes, but not always!), and sapin (every bag I have seen in this color was gorgeous!). And I do like my truffe city.
