a friend of mine has been buying bags directly from the maker of BV, in Vicenza - exact same bag but he cannot put their label on it and of course they are a lot cheaper - think 200 dollars.

has any done something similar - bought bags from "the source" in Italy but since they are the actual maker for the brand but not "the brand" they cannot label them as such?

I don't think that is legal since even though he's not using their name, he's using their design. Also, if you count the material and the labor hours used to make a BV bag, I don't see how it could cost 200$... I would steer clear of this kind of business!

^ i think that only the dark brown (ebano) is considered a classic colour ( like black) and not put on sale ( except in the really seasonal designs)

I went to check the website...it's not been updated yet. Those are from last season. The only thing new is the A/W 07 catalogue.
