    Default 09 Black leathers fading to green?

    Can anyone share their experience with their 09 black bags? I've been wanting to buy a black City but heard that since the 2007 season, people have been complaining about their black leathers fading to green. The Balenciaga stores will not let you return it if this ends up happening too. I just want to make sure that if I pay over $1K for a bag, that it doesn't end up fading on me! Anyone care to share?

    ^^ I've never heard of black Bals turning green. I had a Black 2007 City that I just sold and I took real good care of her and I never had a problem with the leather changing color. Hmm... now I'm curious too as I'm looking to replace my previous Black City with a Black Work in August.

    I have a 08 Black City and it hasn't faded to green. It was pretty saturated when I bought it so maybe that is the reason? When it is outside in bright sunlight it is not a "jet" black but more of a charcoal black. I will try and take pics of it if we ever get a sunny day.


    *Here is a pic with light from a sunny window and indoor lighting.




    This is an 08 so I don't know if Balenciaga used the same dyes as they do with the 09's. I could give you the name of my SA at Barney's, she is very good with answering all your questions and accommodating you as best as she can.

    I have an '09 black Bal city and from what I gather from other forum members' response that I got a pretty saturated one.
    So far have not noticed any color changes but then where I live, sunshine is a rare commodity so that might be the reason.
    The best way might be to buy a Bal from department stores ie Nordstrom, Barneys etc rather than a Bal boutique as stores tend to be more understanding of such issues. Again this is not from my personal experience but from what I gather from other forum members in this forum and other bag/fashion forums.
    Hope this helps!
