I think you should go to the purse forum, there are tons of pictures there, and they will be able to help you

i've seen galet irl, and to me it looks like a darker version of greige (from 06)...
it's grey, but it has some definite beige tones in it...

but like caroule said, i would check the purse forum...they have some pics of the new fall bags...

Thank you caroulemapoule and kimair. Yes i'm a member at tpf and i've seen all the pics, but from those pics i can't decide. Definately looks like a (slightly) darker greige 06 version especially in a pic TMitch6542 (on tpf) posted which has the 2 bags together (greige 06 and galet 09). But still... Kimair since you've seen irl, do you say it's 100% grey? or you would say grey/beige?

Oh, also and another question, doesn't pommier 09 looks like vert gazon 07 only slightly darker (again)? I like both colours, though pine was THE best!!

what's the name of the product most of you use to treat your bags?

it's completely slipping my mind and i feel like i should buy something to treat my bag with so the handles don't get too discolored from use...

Hello ladies,
I was at Holt Renfrew this last week and came across a fantastic bag. Have you all seen the "Street"? The SA didn't even know what it was called, she had to go look up the name for me, and told me it was brand new for them. I have never heard of it before, but that doesn't really mean much since I'm not hip to the Bal-style. They had it in (I think) it was officier? They also had a raisin mid-day that was TDF!!!
Well.. just wondering what everyone thinks of the "street". (I really liked it)

i love the street!
i'm on the waiting list at barneys for a raisin RH one...the squared off shape reminds me of the old bowling style...


galet rh street

there is also a larger version of the street called the "office," that also comes in giant and regular hardware...


a black GSH street on the lower left and a raisin RH street on the lower right

Is everyone here only into authentic Balenciaga, or are there any T&D NBF fans...?

Not that I understand your shortenings at all. But I do not, and will never own a fake bag. I am a bit schocked that you are asking actually. It's a fashion forum you know. :p
