  1. So there was some talk:sneaky:about delicate skins. I did a search *Note: If there is a similiar thread. Apologies in advance.:shame* And found nothing so here is a thread about delicate skins. So I can start by saying that I know for sure Metallic, and Troika skins are not "everyday" bags. I can not wait:yahoo:to hear about other skins and information on them. *Second Note: I hope that I placed this thread in the right place!!:blush:*
     
  2. Great thread!!!!
    I will start with the Troika....I love troika......I have 4 troika bags........but I never use troika as a grab and go bag. Troika was introduced a few years ago and I have seen a few that have come on the resale market that have balding in the corners. IMO they are stunning but 'handle with care'. Troika are made with cow fur and evercalf (forget if they say barenia, it's evercalf) and tho' evercalf is prone to scratches it will patina. However it's the fur that will show wear if not handled with care and I don't see how balding can be fixed.
     
  3. EncoreHermes You have 4!!:faint:Ok, ok. Please, please, pretty please with a birkin on top, tell me what colors you have? BTW I have a Troika Bolide in black...I love that bag. But I agree not all that practical. *Kind of like a pool boy without a pool. Great to look at, but not really necessary!:P*
     
  4. Thank you! I have a blond/ebene HAC, noir/Noir Kelly, chocolat/ebene plume, and a blonde/ebene Plume.

    The hac is my favorite in the blond/ebene combo because of the shape of the bag but any chocolat/ebene is TDF IMO.

    LOL pool boy without a pool.....don't get me thinking :nuts:

    It's such a valuable info; I had just never imagined of balding Troika...

    Thanks, Julide and Encore Hermes,
    for sharing your experience and breath-taking pics. :love::faint::tender:

    They are gorgeous... I can almost feel the fur...

    And they match perfectly with the scarf, and the riding boots!

    You both are great style leaders!!
