I bought a Silver paddington from LVR and after a couple of months the silver started to rub off and there was this bright-ish orange color leather underneath. Well I contacted LVR and they contacted Chloe and I was allowed to send the bag back for replacement, that was around the end of August. I still haven't heard back from them other than that my return is in process, and they can't tell me anything.My bag arrived in Paris on August 28th. I'm carrying a silverado while I'm without my paddington, but it's just not the same. At this point I wish I just had my silver paddinton back- even WITH the peeling color.
