Hi guys, my SA just emailed by this bubblegum pink and she put it on hold for me!! But I can't make up my mind!!! I'm trying to guess if this is from 05 or 08! Can someone please tell me what's the difference between the 05 bubble gum and the 08? I got her to mail me photos of the back of the bag and I don't really know what to make of the leather. PROFESSIONAL HELP PLEASE!!

Welcome to the forum!

2005 didn't have the Giant Hardware, neither the Part Time style. So this definitely is a 2008 S/S Bubblegum GGH Part Time.

From the photos, I like this PT's leather. It looks thick and not dry to me. But I don't like this color combo. But this is just me.

This one should be 09 F/W pink. My SA told me this pink is only available in Balenciaga boutiques/concessions, not in department stores. You can ask your SA what year is showed in the card?

yeah, i asked her and she said something of 09 F/W. I was just checking on the seasons color and I can't seem to find that color on the charts. I thought i made a mistake. is there any difference between the 08 and the 09 if you know??

this bag look like the one I sold last month : a 2008 bubblegum GGH PT with a faboulous leather. I let it go because the colors was not me but the leather was tdf!

in 2009 there was framboise, but this does not look like framboise imho

They don't usually carry Bbags from past seasons -- there might be some stragglers from the past season or the one before, but it's rare for retail stores to have anything earlier than 1 year from the current season (i.e. since it's 09 right now, they might have some 08s, but 07s are very rare).

My sa told me this true color for this pink is between bubble gum and Framboise. Like 09 lilac is only available for NM or Barney's, pink is only for boutique.
