I've seen a few threads asking about color Pomme Vernis so I thought I'd share my experience and a few pictures. I've been using my wallet daily for about 5 years. It's held up great and I just noticed the color transfer after about 3 years, and I'm pretty sure it was from a blue leather pouch I keep in my purse. Good news is that is hasn't gotten worse, but I think I'm cautious of not keeping it near the dark blue pouch. The only other thing that was kept near it was a monogram accessories pouch. Here's a few shots of the color transfer I experience with the Pomme. Hope it helps!

Same thing happened to my Vernis Wallet. :sad: I sold it to someone who would love and care for her.

No, I haven't tried anything. I feel it's more noticeable in the pictures than in person unless I'm looking for it. My friend got the same wallet in the white, and her color transfer was awful! The whole thing turned brownish color and she took it to LV and they told her that nothing could help it and it had seeped in and would be permanent so I figured there was no hope. I love the Pomme color, but would probably stick to Amarante in the future.

I appreciate you posting the pictures! Since I'm new to vernis do I need to worry about my de wallet against my cosmetic case or should that be ok?

How disappointing!! I love the Vernis wallets but it seems one must be careful what goes in the bag with them. I hope you can find a way to clean it off.

I think against the LV canvas is ok since that is coated too. I'm pretty sure my dark blue leather pouch was the problem.

Oh my! Thanks for sharing the photos. So sorry it happened :hugs: I have a pomme wallet and your post made me realize you can never be too careful. I actual say a woman with an MC black wallet and she kept it in her purse with the dust cover on lol. A little extreme I think but hey we love our babies :smile:
