kimair congrats!

Do you guys think these are going to have much hype as the Balenciaga bags did? I mean, they were marketed the way & whatnot...

so this is what they had at barneys sf:
- large: peach/pink (gorgeous color...almost a pinky nude), mustard, cream
- medium: black, tan suede (same as mk's)
- black, chartreuse, cream clutch

here are pics of my medium chartreuse...it really is the perfect size...
under the flap there is one main compartment with 3 pockets (one zip), plus there is a zip pocket in the back...

thanks classicalbang and cato...

cato, i think the feature in november's vogue definitely piqued interest in them...
i don't remember balenciaga bags ever being marketed, you just saw pics of them on "it" girls, like kate moss, gisele, kirsten dunst...
i think that is the route jack and lazaro went by giving them to their friends to "test drive" before releasing...

the sa said that with my purchase, she sold 3 today, and that barneys ny sold out today of their stock...
the leather is alot like balenciaga bags...really lightweight, soft and slouchy...

It looks fab kim! I LOVE the color, it looks great and the medium is bigger than I thought it would be. It looks really good with what you're wearing today!

Wow, I am in love with that bag more now!
I like the color midnight, but am not sure if they have it in medium.

thanks so much everyone...

i'm actually glad they didn't have the midnight one, because i probably would have gotten that...i'm totally in a navy blue phase right now...
they had a grey medium like in amy's pic (bottom row)...it's very cool and has a bit of lilac in it...
and then the edging is blue...it reminds me of the s/s 04 grey balenciaga bags...

Me too! I guess I should be glad they don't have the medium midnight aswell.

Great purchase, kimair, as usual.

Wow I really like the messenger PS1 bags.

Not such a fan of the catwalk bags at all.

Can't wait to see pics kimair
