Hi! I've been searching to try and find the answer to this, but I've been having no luck. I purchased a really cute YSL 1980s giraffe-print PVC and canvas crossbody from Japan. I received it yesterday and it's adorable. I was hoping to do some light rehabbing on it, starting with conditioning. I rubbed a bit on the front logo patch and it was fine, but as soon as I started on the piping I noticed I was rubbing the paint right off! Any info/ideas/suggestions anyone has about how I can proceed next would be greatly appreciated. (I'm also starting to question authenticity because this rub-off seems strange? But that's a whole different issue!) Any insight appreciated!
