I feel like shouting, “It’s alive!” After months of searching for purple versions of Le Creuset products, which I documented on my blog, and finally giving in and purchasing several pieces on eBay, at last the Le Creuset pieces formerly known as “lilac mist” and “aubergine” have been rebranded and released in the states as “lilac” and “cassis.” Why? I have no idea. Perhaps these are more “American” sounding colors? But either way I’m ecstatic. Currently these pieces are exclusive to Sur La Table. Personally I feel that a big dutch oven purchase is in my immediate future.
