So I've had my Argent Quilted Bay for a few months now and it's had fairly heavy use (I'm in a monochrome phase right now) but imagine my horror to discover today....(Div, look away now) that the metallic finish is starting to rub off leaving a small faded black patch underneath it. It's only in one spot at the moment but I'm very concerned that it'll start happening in other places on the bag. Weirdly I've got a pair of gun metal metallic Dr Marten lace-up boots that seem to be suffering from the same problem, but that's kind of ok where boots are concerned because they look kind of cool in a worn-in way, but on a bag (that cost a small fortune I might add), this is really not cricket. I've never treated my Bays with any kind of leather conditioner or nourisher because I could never seem to get a sensible answer from anybody at Chloe about what you're suupposed to use to do this and I was too nervous about using the wrong preparation and damaging the bagsush:. Maybe I should have done that though, but nothing like this has happened with the rest of my Bays that have had heavy use. I really love the bag and I really don't want to return it, but I'm wondering whether this is a general flaw with metallicised (if that's the right word) leather ? Anybody else had this problem ? If the finish starts rubbing off all over the bag it's going to look awful and if its happened in one spot, it's quite likely to happen again I reckon. Hmmmmm.....what to do ladies:s ? Do I just chalk it up to experience and hope for the best or should I report the problem back to the store where I bought it ? All suggestions gratefully received.
