I am so tempted to get this bag - I am so drawn to it.

If anyone has this bag or has seen it, can you please share your thoughts on it?

Thank you!

I don't know if I could wear a white bag I think I'd be terrified of it getting dirty...... I've just returned my yellow phantom for something darker because I was worried about colour transfer :smile:

Gorgeous, but pure white is so tough! Do you tend to baby/care for your bags well or are you rougher on them? That would be my only concern.

I have the same concerns with white, bit I am careful with my bags. I have seen the pics of Nicole richie with her white phantom - seems like she carries it a lot. Another tpfr has this bag and said it isn't as hard as she thought it would b to keep clean because of the leather used

I love it, I'm not a big fan of white bags but this one is so beautiful especially with the black details!! i say go for it, you'll have to be a little bit more careful but at the end of the day you have to be with every bag.:woohoo:

Such a gorgeous bag for Spring. I have not seen it in person, but if you are careful with all your bags then yes go with the White. I've been thinking about the new trapeze in the baby blue with the white wings, but alas i am so rough on my bags, so i'm always looking for a darker color like the elusive "navy" edge which folks have advised they've seen in Singapore and Switzerland. Good luck !

I've seen and held it in person. Even the SA told me it would get dirty so fast unless all your clothes, furniture, and cars are white.

The white is GORGEOUS imo! Especially with the black details as another member posted above. I say GRAB IT but protect it with some collonil organic protector spray. Since it's almost spring/summer you prob won't be wearing jeans much will you? If not then I would go for it!

white is so hard to take care of...eventually it will turn yellow and the edges will be black....the handle will look nasty....
white is hard to maintain, but i can't imagine anything as drastic as this happening unless the quality was completely subpar and the bag isn't taken care of. but, again, we all have these concerns over white bags yet so many white bags on the market. i imagine someone is buying them and not worry about it so much...

i appreciate everyone's point of view and honesty!

It's not the quality issue but more of tear and wear....no matter what, anything white will turn yellow. Of course you can reverse that process with cleaning and all but the first thing that pop out with a white bag are dirt and it's more apparent and less forgiving as black. Having said that, I am not a fan of black bags. When I see the edges of my colored clutches turning dark, thats when I think I should have gotten black instead

I love how graphic and bold the White/Black Luggage Phantom is. I would personally buy it if I had my own car. I would not be maneuvering around town with this beauty and not be flustered/paranoid every 5 steps that I take.

It's nice but if you are in the mood for a white bag, why don't you consider the box bag in white? Or wait for the all-white box bag for Fall 2013? Or even the Luggage Nano

Attaching pics just because I feel it's a gorgeous bag. Nicole's Phantom seem to already have a mark...
