  2. I did like the Storm grey as well because it had warmer undertones. Rouge Legion Red is also an option still. I am thinking of getting a Large Niki.

  3. Thanks for replying. Yes it’s medium. I thought it was faulty but if it’s normal than I get more relaxed. This bag is so beautiful I wanna cry. I’m still waiting for my SDJ souple bag to arrive on Friday. Can’t wait!
     
  4. Hi, thanks for asking! I'll tell you everything about my very, very basic "method" but I have to admit that I am not an expert myself and have not learnt this method from a leather specialist either. So, even though it worked for my bag particularly, I would still advise you to ask people who are more knowledgeable and can provide much more refined and reliable ways of removing stains.
    I usually wear my Niki as a shoulder bag with double chain, not as a crossbody, so even though I wear denim jeans pretty often, the leather was not touching denim and was not getting stains therefore. Once I wore it as a crossbody while I was wearing dark blue jeans, and after couple of hours I noticed very thin but visible stains on the back of my Niki. At first, I decided that I would bring it to Saint Laurent boutique immediately and ask for repair service. Then I realized that as long as Niki's leather is crinkled and not smooth, I could probably clean the stains myself. I would never risk it if it was smooth or more delicate leather. So, I made my fingertips wet with just a drop of water and as simple and ridiculous it may sound, I cleaned the stains directly with my fingers and nails. The linings of the bag are more gentle and harder to clean, so, I did not use my nails in that case to avoid scratches and used only fingertips (the same applies to the leather part of the strap as well). The leather looks perfect without any trace of colour transfer (original colour has not faded either), however I understand that it is very unprofessional way to take care of leather, so I would probably not recommend to repeat it, especially if you like to "baby" your handbags. Also, I tried this just three times even though it's been almost a year since I've bought the bag, but I understand that using this method often may damage the leather.
    I guess my experience is not very helpful, but at least it demonstrates that Niki is a very practical and durable bag that can be worn often and still look pristine. Anyway, if you are afraid of colour transfer, just try to avoid dark denim while wearing the bag. I hope you'll enjoy wearing your Niki!
     
  5. Storm grey is gorgeous!

  6. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your method. It makes me relax a little bit about using my lighter colored Niki and not worrying too much about color transfer. I wear mine with the strap doubled up too, so it would be rare for the bag to rub my jeans. Still, good to be on the lookout and to know that it can likely be fixed if it happens. Again, thank you for your reply! :smile:
     
  7. I live in England, my Niki has been caught in a couple of downpours (oops!). I just wiped the droplets off when I got inside without any issues, the bag still looks perfect despite me using it every day for work for the last 3 months :smile:
     
  8. My large black Niki with black hardware arrived today. It was for sale 30 % off in Mytheresa last week. I just couldn’t resist. I was considering a medium size before, but when I receive the sale email I just went for it. The size is actually perfect, not too big at all.

  9. Love the look of this bag in black. Does the bag sag at the top when filled and does the top lift and create an opening at the sides. I’ve also seen bottom corner curl on some pics. Please share some thoughts on ongoing use. Thanks.
     
  10. Love the Niki in croc. I just received mine today and it looks fabulous. Just wondering if you could tell me if this bag wears well. I will use it mostly for a daily bag. Have you had any issues with the leather chipping or any defects? TIA
     
  11. There is actually still one large black Niki with black hardware in Mytheresa, but it’s in full price now. I suppose the large size in black hardware is some kind of exclusive for Mytheresa as I haven’t seen it anywhere else.
     
  12. You are so lucky to have got this beautiful classic bag on sale! The Large size really is absolutely perfect. I have Medium but wish I went for the large. It is very cool and practical. Congratulations!

  14. Thank you! :flowers: I was actually surprised how perfect the large size is, I thought it would look bigger, but it’s just perfect! Maybe you’ll find a large Niki in some other colour? I also love the new grey colour, dark smog, but I’m definitely on a ban now.

  15. I saw the new Niki tote bag in store this week. I thought it was beautiful and simple with nice darkened silver chain handles. Has anyone else looked at this bag?
