  1. Hi I was wondering if anyone can help. I recently purchased the College medium in silver hardware from Neiman Marcus a few months ago. Love it and didn’t think anything of it. A few days ago I went to the Saint Laurent boutique with my baby cousin because she wanted the same bag. The SA made a comment saying my bag was defected. The leather had a sheen to it (as seen in the bottom of the attached picture) and that it shouldn’t look like that, it has a metallic-like color over it. It should look like the top photo. The SA at Saint Laurent boutique suggest that I take it in the store for an exchange with the receipt or a repair. However, the SA at Neiman was adamant that the college came in different style leather and that the “non-shiny was more money.” Has anyone had the same problem?

  2. Hi I don’t think it’s meant to have a metallic sheen to it at all. Check what the details or colour code say on your receipt. If you purchased a black bag and the receipt states you did then Neiman Marcus are lying. You can get the leather redyed though through most professional leather restorers.

    I know there is a vintage leather version with a sheen but that is completely different to your bag. I’ve attached a picture.
