So, I have been torn about revealing this now, since I don’t have it in my hot little hands yet. But I do have peektures from BFF Vickie, so why the hell not, right?
My chosen favourite colour of Spring/Summer 2012 is Glycine. Since missing out on Murier as my very first MPP, I have been patiently waiting for something to replace it. And when I saw the swatches, I knew Glycine would steal my heart. <;3
After an email convo with Steve, my SA at Costa Mesa, he proceeded to locate one for me. It was, at the time, the very last piece in the US! He sent me a lovely peekture of it. The leather looked scrumptious!
Upon seeing this peekture, any doubt I had went right out the window!
However! It wasn’t to be such an easy journey procuring Little Glycine. Steve mailed to say unfortunately, that piece had a large scratch in the leather behind and could not be sold. The good news was, there were two Glycine MPPs available to order from Balenciaga.com (which were not visible to the public). Balenciaga.com and the Balenciaga boutiques operate separately and Steve could not order from the inventory there.
TWO! Only two!
Mr Bb came to the rescue by getting on the phone to Balenciaga CS, and placing the order right away to ship to my BFF Vi!
Vi will then meet bB in Taiwan with Glycine! :)
Barely a few days later, Vi had a gigantic box delivered to her door…
It is intriguing how the colour changes in different light. I’m loving all the variations I’ve seen though! But what I really love about Glycine is the fact that Mr Bb got on the case so quickly to buy it and Vi was more than happy to carry it to Taiwan for me. bB is very moved, and very lucky. Glycine will be extra special because of the both of you. :)
More peektures to come, when Glycine comes home with bB from Taiwan! Maybe we will do a live reveal in Taiwan too!

ps. Just checked Balenciaga.com and it appears they have stock peektures up of possibly the very last Glycine Classic Mini Pompon. Here are the peektures as a colour reference…
