Peony and Moore Lucia update and question on which colour
I promised to pass on what colours P and M are going to offer Lucia in this autumn/ winter. Spoke to them yesterday and seems that a deep chocolate brown will be available, as well as navy and black. Don't think they're going to continue the Tan into winter.
Still leaves me personally with a bit of a dilemma. Don't really want tan because the leather is not as soft on that colour way as on the others. Don't want camel for winter. Don't need black, as I succumbed to lovely half price Zadig and Voltaire black bag in sale.
So that leaves navy or chocolate. My coats are: navy trench, khaki parka, and grey winter coat. Boots and shoes grey, and black, with one pair chocolate boots (my least favourite). Votes, please, for whether navy or choc better with all those.
I have been lusting after a Lucia for some time, had been planning to bite the bullet and get the tan one but am slightly put off after your comment polyhymnia about the leather not being as soft...is this true?
The nice woman at P and M did tell me yesterday the tan was not in the same soft nubuck as the others but I haven't felt it in RL. Anna smoky quartz in RL is what I'd call a taupe -more brown than grey but I personally think softer and more versatile colour than chocolate.
The tan P&M looked like plastic in real life. Really disappointing. Still love the Lucia though but think the camel, as lovely as it is, will not see you through winter. Fine for autumn and spring though.
Like the smoky quartz shade and would blend with more colours.
polyhymnia go Navy, it'll go beautifully with grey. I really like the sounds of chocolate brown, I'm thinking of the Navy as I have a Navy wool winter coat which I love and wear constantly come Sept/Oct. Altho I do think the camel i have will look lovely with coat too....
whoneedssleepanyway I have the camel, it is a light brown, but it goes with EVERYTHING I own, its the kind of colour you don't have to think hard about when chucking on a coat iykwim...its buttery soft with really lovely grainy leather, the navy and black look like the same leather imo from the pics. I'm still wearing it now and wearing some winter coats already..looks lovely.
