wow...stunning!
looks like you got a great pourpre...i saw some that looked like it had more brown in it...the gold really pops...

i love your bracelet too...i can't decide if i want one of those or a hermes double tour, but you may have convinced me...

@Kimair,
Thanks for the info, I called B and they said all C-D's in galet are out, they still have a few GCH-D left in galet though, so I guess I'll end up getting her that one.

@deeth,
I noticed your UK quotes vary from B's UK website? they quote the classic day for $575 GBP which is still close to the 540 GBP you mentioned, there's no GCH Day on the website but you metioned it at 680 GBP which is less than the 745 GBP that the GSH Day is quoted in the UK website, is that correct? do the websites include vat and your quotes do not?

The Uk boutique is sold out of the classic day in galet, but they're looking into the GSH-D and the GCH-D for me and will email me back soon, so Im trying to calculate the actual cost between purchasing from the UK and from the US.

Also, I read earlier in this thread that someone lost a leather cover from one of the studs in their bag, My wife also lost a leather cover from one of her ballet flat studs and was asking me if I could ask you here if this is a rare, or common, ocurrance?
She had her ballet flat fixed at holt renfrew for free, which is where she bought them, but it makes me wonder if I would have to return it to UK or US if that were to happen with the new GCH-Day bag.

Thanks again,
Alex

Hmm now I'm not sure, those were the prices in September when I last purchased from Bal London, maybe there has been an increase?

^Thanks...

Well, I heard back from UK Bal and they dont have anymore GSH or GCH day bags in Galet either, so the US is my only option now.

Does anybody know the new SS/10 colors yet?

Im interested to see what colors are going to be available for the Day bags this coming season, maybe theres another color that my wife will like, and I could eventually get it locally @Holts and avoid all the shipping/customs hassles.

Tia,

Yes it's definitely a deep red with pink undertones, no brown at all

I'd love a double tour..! Get both

, you can see the pre-season colours here.

^ You're too kind deeth ^ Thanks again.....

Ok, I just read in tpf that Bal bags were 25% off in Dec @Holts in Toronto, cant believe I missed that, does anybody know if, or when, Holts will have anither sale on Bal bags?

Also is Ciel anywhere close to Galet IRL?
Or is the difference as plain as light grey vs. light blue


Tia,

I went hunting in Barneys the other day, and that new Outremer color is FABULOUS. Such a beautiful blue! And the leather was fantastic...nothing at all like the papery stuff they had going on last year - almost as if it was back to chevre leather instead of agneau!

Hi! I really want to get a black classic day bag.. What is the best place to get it? I live in Norway, so I have to get it online, or maybe have a friend buy it for me in Paris or in the US. Found it at Barneys.com, and it was $1095. What do you think? Is that the average price? What is the best place to get it? I wouldnt mind buying a used one either, but there are so many fakes on ebay. What to do! Any advice?

I appreciate all help with this

You can email one of the Balenciaga stores if you can pay with a credit card, and they will send you the bag

yea, it would be best to email or call a balenciaga boutique and order it...
$1095 is pretty much the price everywhere (that particular style doesn't go on sale) and balenciaga will ship for free on orders over $500...

mattamorphis...nice bag! is it black?

I would email Bal London to see if they have what you want.
Bal London: boutique.londres@uk.balenciaga.com.

Alternatively you could try Paris, Cannes or Milan.

George V, Paris: Boutique10gv@fr.balenciaga.com
Cannes: boutique.cannes@fr.balenciaga.com
Milan: stock.milan@it.balenciaga.com

google for HGBags. they got GREAT deals on Balenciaga bags. the girls over at TPF are CRAZY about that site, continually order from it and it's all authentic.

the price for a Day in a current season color is $895! that's a saving of $200!
