hello ladies,

i'm new to chloe, and i'm looking to buy an ivory chloe paddington.
can i chk how the leather holds up? is there a problem with darkening of handles and is it hard to clean?

i chked the SA and she said there's no need for any leather spray etc on the bag.

before i take the plunge, can girls with a white/ light coloured paddy share ur experiences with me?

thanks!!!

I really don't think you are going to have a problem... Unless it is a larger bag and going to rub up against dark denim - that seems to be the hardest thing to get off lighter leather - regardless of brand.

Chloe Paddington leather is easily cleaned with leather cleaner, most dirty will come off - with the exception of ball point pen, denim rub and worse!

Everyday wear should be fine.

I agree, only thing to watch out for is the denim or ink. I have many shades of off white and no problems or special care.

just watch out for dark colours such as denims!
keep an eye on the corners on the bag, sometimes they rub on stuff with out you knowing and get dirty!!

Maybe avoid skin contact on the handles since natural body oils are the culprit for darkening. I don't mean wear gloves all the time - LOL - but if it worries you I would wear longer sleeves for the crook of your arm?

My Blanc paddy is spotless. Having a white bag is not as scary as you think it might be.

what about black cotton like long t-shirt...would it get color transfer to my white paddy? I don't usually wear jeans, but I wear a thin black cardigan which has been washed many times

I have my blanc paddy since 06. it is still perfect.

chloe leather hold up pretty well. No darken handle at all.
for the rub corner, I think no matter what color you got, you will have to take extra care with it.
