Hello. I have a medium Chanel Patent Leather Flap Bag in Black color. When trying o clean it, I use the Coach Leasing Lotion on it and it ruin the leather. Some parts are ruin (look dull). I brought it to Chanel Store for repair but they said they can't do anything because it's patent leather. Any one can help me where it can be fix ?

Thanks.

I am thinking of getting one.
How hard on taking care of patent leather Burberryprncess?

Thank you


I find dark patent leather to be fairly maintenance free. Light colors are more troublesome because you have to worry about ink marks and color transfers from clothes, which are totally unremovable. Best to avoid light color patent unless you are extremely careful. On the other hand, dark color patents show fingerprint marks easily.

I have patent bags and my only issue is fingerprints. I just wipe them down with the cloth that came with my sunglasses and they are good as new. And, I do not completely baby my bags since I have 2 year old twins who touch them and I wear the bags to playgrounds, etc.

Patent leather is quite easy to take care of I think. Especially since you can just wipe them down after using them. I have a rock & chain black patent flap and it is so maintenance free. They get smudged here and there but it isn't a big deal.. a wipe down will clean it right up.

I am sorry to hear that, OP. I am afraid patent leather can rarely be rescued. Try loving my bags to see if they are able to assist.

I love patent leather but I have very few patent leather bags, because with time, they get sticky and are also proned (sp?) to colour transfer. Chanel uses good quality patent leather but there's no escaping from the above problems as time goes by.
