I just bought a Phantom in a colour called Taupe as I thought it was a lovely neutral and alternative to black. The leather is not the smooth kind, it's the one that is more textured, slightly pebbled. I'm not sure what that's called - sorry! I have never owned a light coloured bag before and I'm really scared to use it because I'm terrified of colour transfer. I always wear black or dark skinny jeans in the winter so colour transfer is inevitable. If it means the bag will stain I will probably just return the bag but if the colour transfer could be removed I will take the bag out and enjoy her. It was between this bag and a very dark grey Antigona and now I'm thinking I should have played it safe and got the Antigona as it was a darker colour. What do you ladies think? Does anyone own a light coloured bag in this area and how dirty does it get? TIA.
