Praline arrives first on

To dispel the rumors that the new spring 2011 collection would arrive sometime this week on the website, I emailed customer service to inquire about the upcoming colors. 

Their response was:

Thank you for your email.

We kindly invite you to check the website this January for new colors.

Thank you for your interest in Balenciaga.

We wish to welcome you back soon on Balenciaga Online Shop.

So I thought that was a done deal, and was pretty much ready to wait until January for the new colors to show up.  Then I checked the site this morning, and lo and behold, quite a few Praline bags have popped up on the website available for purchase!  The color looks extremely washed out, probably due the lighting when they were photographed.  My experience with their website photos is that their color of their photos are not really accurate.  It is a repeat color from 2009 Praline, but the tones will probably vary for 2011's Praline; maybe slightly darker.

My take: Praline is not my cup of tea.  I'm not really a beige person.  I'm now more of a "black bag goes with everything" person.   I also hate denim transfer that lighter Balenciaga bags are prone to. Bleh.
