YOUR OPINION ON THE COLOR "MOSS" ???

Started 1375466704.657 in Dooney & Bourke | Last reply 1375540267.39 by stevieb

I have yet to see the Moss in person. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what color the Moss green is. On my computer its reading a "pea soup" green and I don't think thats right. Is it a murky green ...or....a nice green ? I would appreciate anyone who could describe the Moss color if they have seen it in person.

To me, moss, olive, pea soup..... the same or at least VERY similar. I like 'em. :o)

Hello Susan CA

I love that color too. I was just wondering if anyone had seen it in person ? {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

I have a large bag in Moss and I adore it. It is really appropriately named--it looks like moss. A real neutral. Not grass green, not bright, not deep...sort of a mid/low range green with yellow undertones. Murky --is probably a good description. I think it looks great with everything. Of course, I do think that colors found in nature would go with most every other color pallette--Mother Nature knows what she's doing.

I have a moss satchel and it's a great color. Not like the olive at all. A good neutral.

Beautiful color! I plan to get the large satchel in moss as soon as it's available.

I think it's one of their prettier greens... It's a somewhat brighter true green without much if any blue or black in the mix. I'd love a bag in this color but am having trouble finding a silhouette I like in this shade of true green. I also like the olive, but agree, they are nothing alike.

Hello Stevie....my friend.

Thank you for your input. On the Dooney site it looks like a beautiful green and on QVC.com it looks more ...blahhh. Since I've never seen the moss in person...I was hoping it looked closer to the picture on the Dooney site. Maybe you could help by checking out the D&B site and comparing it to the Mini Crossbody picture on QVC.com as the two moss bags look different. I love love love the moss color on the Dooney site...but, not so much on QVC.com

Let me know what you think....it sounds like you've seen it in person. Which picture is closer to the actual color ?

Thanks to all who have posted with their feedback. I really appreciate it.

Now...Stevie, my friend...HELP {#emotions_dlg.w00t}

Bobby, I'll look, but you need to give me a bag name for the Dooney site. In the meantime, see if you can find the video of the Florentine small satchel that was shown last weekend. They featured it in moss and it was glorious. I'd have ordered it in a minute, even though I'm trying to be good, but I don't like that silhouette... I looked at the cross body on this site and the moss I've seen is brighter than that, but keep in mind that A LOT depends on the bag. The same color in different bags, (let alone different leather families, even within Dooney), can appear very different. Even the same color name isn't always apples to apples.

Hello Stevie...

What a brilliant idea ! I went back and watched the video of the satchel in moss. In the video it was sitting next to the ivy. So now I have a pretty good grasp as to what the color of moss is. Thank you so much for the great suggestion. {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

Glad you got to see it. I love the color. Now, if could just find the right bag IN that beautiful color. The only green Dooneys I have are fabric and I'd love to add moss and olive leather at some point... But alas, I'm trying to contain my handbag urges... It IS a challenge though, being the handbag addict that I am...
