F/W 2012 Mangue on and More! has received three of the F/W 2012 colors which are Mangue, Gris Tarmac and Rose Thulian.  So far it seems like Gris Tarmac is a hit color because people have been awaiting a lovely medium gray!  Mangue seems like a mix between Mimosa and Moutarde!  In some pictures Rose Thulian has a lot of red tones but it also seems like a washed out red.

F/W 2012 Cassis, Gris Tarmac, Jacynthe and Rose Thulian

It looks like the first few Fall/Winter 2012 colors are arriving into the boutiques.  Some intel from tpf show us the first few colors, Cassis, Gris Tarmac, Jacynthe and Rose Thulian. None of the colors really sing to me except for Rose Thulian which is such a pretty pink in my opinion.  For more pics, please contact an SA at the Balenciaga NY boutique.  

PS.  There is an ongoing presale right now at the Balenciaga boutiques for the Holiday Hamilton items, Raffia bags and other miscellaneous accessories and shoes.  Items will be shipped 5/31.  Please contact your SA for more info or refer to this. I'm hoping some stuff will make it into 2nd cut though!

Cassis looks like a mix of plum and burgundy.. Click for Cassis Classic Town.

Gris Tarmac is a supposedly the replacement for Anthracite.. Gris Tarmac Classic City available
Jacynthe is a dead ringer for our beloved 2006 Cornflower Blue.. Jacynthe G12 Rose Gold City
Rose Thulian may be somewhat reminiscent to 2004 Rose?... Rose Thulian Classic Velo
