The colors came out very true to life.
    -So- gorgeous, I am drooling just looking at my ipad...

    The only thing that would have made that Aubergine/Hemp/Steel Imago combination even better would be a lighter shade for the interior color. The Wasabi makes finding things in the bag really easy. I wish they could use a shade like the lining of my Hunter/Cork/Sage Imago. The sage is actually a silvery sort of steel that would also work really well in the color combinations, but provide a lighter interior. (I hauled out all my bags to check color and fabric combinations when I got the Aubergine Kit. And now I can say thanks to the folks at Tom Bihn for sending it to me, and to Katy for her great note and card!)

    Katy, you are sweet and a tad evil. ;-) Lucky for me, my husband does not see the Bihn bills.

    I'm holding out for a no-logo Aubergine/wasabi Swift. Hope they're in before my trip to Kauai in December...

    Congrats on the new Imago; I had a feeling that The Aubergine would be a killer color combination with the hemp, so thanks so much for taking pictures:

    I emailed Katy just before I put in my Little Swift in Aubergine order to ask whether she'd seen the new Imago combination, but at the time they hadn't made up the bag yet. It looks beautiful. Hope you really like your Imago this time around. Great colors on the pouches!

    Now remember, with your complement of stuff, when you fill that grocery tote, you're only allowed to buy eggplant!!!

    Everything looks so nice. I too tried an Imago in Steel/Cork/Wasabi and it didn't quite work for me, my son now has it. Aubergine/Hemp makes me want to give it a second chance!

    Aubergine is beautiful. I may have to give some unused pouches as gifts so I can get the new color

    Great pics!! Thank you. I've been thinking about buying an aubergine/hemp/steel Imago and your photos were a big help - it is now definitely on my wish list.

    In the Imago, I have a medium pouch with toiletries such as a brush, hand sanitizer, etc.; a small pouch with my iPad/iPhone charger, earphones, and a usb drive; a mini pouch with punch cards and coupons; wallet; keys; a business card holder; folders; 100-page notebook; iPad in a leather case; sunglasses; iPhone (note how my cover matches the aubergine!) which fits into the size zipper pocket; grocery tote; sunglasses; camera in a case; a small and pen/pencil case in aubergine that I haven't filled up yet; and my coffee mug (looking quite complementary to the wasabi, I might add; and my Teavana purple travel tea mug is equally matchy!). My pens, pencils and highlighters clip nicely on the inside pocket. I have various papers in the back pocket to reach quickly while out. One nice surprise is that my badge fits perfectly in the other side zipper pocket so it's easily accessible in the morning as I'm walking into the office.

    I had tried an Imago a couple of years ago and couldn't get it to work for me. This time, it seems everything fits very nicely. Funny how that happens! My only concern is that it looks so big on me. Being only 5' tall, even with the strap as short as it will go, it hangs to my knee, ha ha! No matter; I can always wear it cross-body if I'm walking very far. I opted not to share a self-portrait, though!

    Katy thank you so much! I'm excited to bring another friend along as well! Funny that my trip last week didn't work out and then this one turned up right away.

    Okay everyone, my iPhone and iPad are poised for pics!
