lovelygarments - I don't like my bags treated with any thing so i always make sure before i purchase the bag to ask the seller if the bag was treated. If the answer is yes then i pass it no matter how much i want it. I truly believe Balenciaga bags are beautiful the way they are and you shouldn't tamper with the leather (IMO). These bags in time will get the look that every one is looking for (broken in) so you just have to be patient.Oh Nanaz, I love your lilac city. The leather is just gorgeous. Did you treat it with anything, or did it come that way? It is really the most beautiful lilac I have ever seen!
