I think its true white...and I think they were released last spring, I am not 100% sure about that though! If you look at the number on the creed inside the bag I think it will say 09 in the first set of numbers meaning it was made in that year.
I just checked my white patent Leah. Its the really big one. The style # is 13179 though. I bought it last May at the outlet. My mom bought one too. They went very fast! They were all gone before we even left the store. I couldn't find much info on it but then I checked it out on the Coach Japan website and they carried many colors and matching accessories for the Leah so I have suspected that maybe it was a Japan exclusive. They had many colors on the Japan website this fall including a brown and a berry color. I can't remember what the third color was though. When I saw the new colors of patent Leah at the outlet like the navy, I thought maybe the Japan exclusives had come in. But I checked the tag and it was MFF. I'm still happy though because I'd love to get another one that was smaller. Oh and they have spring colors on the Japan website now too.Found a white patent Leah (13178) at the outlet today. Only one in the store.
What's the history on this one???
Do they have any yellowing issues?
Any other issues?
If this is right my Leah bag says 08!I think its true white...and I think they were released last spring, I am not 100% sure about that though! If you look at the number on the creed inside the bag I think it will say 09 in the first set of numbers meaning it was made in that year.
They have recently brought back many MFF Leah patent bags so maybe you can check and see if it is MFF.
No camera available but it looks like bellagal's in post 2 of this thread. More like the center picture (dimmer lighting) since mine is not snow white.Can you post pictures... I have never seen one...
Didn't they put the chocolate one back up on the Japan site?? I know they put one of the fall colors back but I don't know why. It doesn't make sense because they put up new spring colors. I love the pale green color too.Yah I wonder if its a Japan one too.....I got the year 09 from some of the creeds of 13178 that are on eBay now that are not MFF. I love that chocolate brown one too, I run a search every day for the gray one.....so far no luck!!
It wasn't a Japanese exclusive either. It was just a limited edition. Once we sold out of the white and the light pink (I think it might have been rose?) we never got them back in.Thanks bunnym..., Possibly!
It is not a MFF bag. It is an op art 13178 with the crossbody strap. It was also the only one in the store in the 50% off section.
They had a bunch of the MFF Leah totes in another section of the store.
