Swift is a pretty soft leather ... just wondering if a sellier swift Kelly would slouch over time?
Humm,.. good question.
I guess the only real way to know is to wait.....like about 5-10 years?? I'll let you know at that time...LOL...since I have a swift Kelly. Will get back to you..LOL!
oooooh, but all the fun you'll have with that beautiful Kelly, Moviegirl, during the wait!
The fun I will have indeed!!!! Hope she can handle it!!!
since sellier would have the extra layer for support, i think not right away at least. mou, i guess so. here are thoughts on retourne:
A good friend of mine has a kelly in swift, and another in clemence, both retourne, and even though she has the swift about 5 months longer, it actually is holding it's shape better than the clemence, the clemence has "slumped" since her purchase.
The reason i asked is that I really like the Rose Dragee color ... One of these days, I'd like to get a sellier Kelly 28cm in Rose Dragee. however, it appears that they are only making Rose Dragee in swift leather. I absolutely cannot deal with unstructured or slouchy bags (unless it's a shoulder Birkin), so I'd really like to know if swift sellier will slouch over time ...
If so, then I'm going to have to forget about it ush:
The bag is similar to togo in slouch factor, but firmer than clemence, I did not notice any "slouch progression" in my friends bag, but it was never totally firm in the first place. I have a birkin in swift, and I also think it holds better than clemence, but not firm like box or chevre.
I think in this case, it's probably safer to get Rose Dragee in swift with the Kelly Longue style then. It's flat so unlikely to slouch as I won't be standing it up. Either that or a Lindy 30cm.
I hope they make Rose Dragee in exotic or chevre ... I would get a bag in that color if that's the case.
I have a feeling you may not like swift, Kou,.... thinking about it.... I just looked at my bag, I would not call it firm, by any means.:s
Maybe wait untill they start using that color in a different leather, that color would look great in box calf!
But see, I can't do box calf either. I go absolutely NUTS if something gets scratched up ... I know it gives the leather "character", but ... well, I don't like scratches.
Do you think they'll make that color in exotics? I'm hoping they make it in ostrich, it'll be a gorgeous shade of powder pink.
Well swift does hold up better than box as far as scratches go,
In ostrich it could be stunning...as long as it clearly looks pink, and not like raw chiken
I'm craving for such a variety of pink exotics that at this point I am seriously considering a naked chicken bag if it does turn up
I'll send you the raw turkey skin I was about to throw away, .........and a sewing kit!
