if i understand cagan correctly, and i do, i'm very very small. so here is a post about a small person thinking about small things... oh wait, this is tPf, where the color of a purse is a BIG thing. LOL here's what i've been thinking about - i'm interested in how colors age. not the leather. i'm thinking about how certain colors look on older bags (not old styles, just used and loved bags). now some people have plans to stave off aging (with spa treatments, infrequent exposure to the elements, etc.), and some people replace what is old with something new. but some people, myself included, carry a bag and wear it day in and day out, a signature bag (as i like to think of it). and since we're talking hermes, these bags can literally last you your whole life (in terms of hardware being fixed, leather being refurbished, etc.). i am careful with and considerate of my bags in as much as i am of myself and all of my possessions, but as a fortune cookie recently told me "aging is the future." so anticipating wear, far far far far far far far far down the road, what color will carry scuffed corners with the most grace and dignity? what other colors besides black and rouge h (my top picks for this issue) qualify as colors that will age well (meaning how they will look with age, not whether they can defy aging - i'm not interested in that)? also, what considerations do you have when thinking about a future purse's color?
