Hello ladies

I am usually found floating around the Mulberry threads but I recently spotted this Classic City and have fallen in love!

Can anyone tell me how the suede wears and whether it needs any special treatment?

I haven't seen the bag IRL, so if anyone has mod pics or can direct me to some I'd be really grateful!

Many thanks in advance :smile:mytheresaimages.s3.amazonaws.com/catalog/product/cache/common/product_102495/small_image/1000x1000/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/P/0/P00024450-CLASSIC_CITY_BAG-STANDARD.jpg

Love that bag-- don't know IRL-- but I bet you have to be cautious--lighter suede will always get dirty--

there are a few threads on here about the suede - general thoughts are that it is quite hardwearing,.....and this bag is just sooooo pretty!

suade is always difficult to treat, especially that beautiful picture you posted. Never saw one irl but in the pic you posted you can see the hardware on the handles is creating dents on the body of the bag, it can happen to any balenciaga bag, but I would imagine it would urk me more. Its a gorg bag, just not an everyday bag. Good luck!!

Thank you! I think I'll really have to see it IRL and see how heavy it is. Sadly I think it's A/W so may not be able to locate one - fingers crossed!

Oh! Cities with classic hardware are not heavy at all IMO, good luck!
