And here is the YSL. I just purchased this bag, pre-loved.

Does anyone have suggestions for how I can treat the handles of this little bag? It doesn't have a strap… just satchel handles… and I am afraid that they will darken over time. Would it be safe to use FHO (For Handles Only) on them? I have heard that one should not put a product on metallic bags, but on the other hand I would hate to ruin the handles with the oil from my hands…

Hi, Lips! I looked up this bag, because the name didn't sound familiar, and I learned that you and I are… well… may not bag twins… but at least bag "cousins"! I own a Pierotucci bag also, but it is not a metallic.

I own this one: http://www.pierotucci.com/bags/toscanella_women/Toscanella_Leather_Handbag_style_east_west_1190.htm in the color Cream (which I see does not appear on their page any more… I wonder if they are no longer making it in that color?). I love their bags! They are so well made! How long have you had your Campomaggi?

OMG, Kfoorya, I'm absolutely drooling! What an amazing color. Such a terrific neutral… I'll bet it goes with everything.



I must ask: I'm sure you keep it in a protective dust bag when you're not wearing it, but do you use any products on it, either to protect the leather or to moisturize it?

Thank you so much my dear! I actually can't answer that question since I just got it 2 days ago :sad: so sorry! But I am planning to keep it in the dust bag when not in use just like I do with my other bags.
