Does anyone has any experiences with white leather bags? I read that some, like the chanel 2.55 turn yellow with age. I am contemplating on a white ferragamo leather bag if it doesn't come in black, but wonder how long a lifeline it will have before it starts turning yellow!

I know with white linens, (I have some antique linens) the advice is to wrap in "acid free paper" to prevent yellowing. I have no idea if this would work for leather bags.

Keep it in the Dust bag if it comes, so as not to get too much light when now using. It's a Ferraguamo so for sure it'll have a dust bag. That definately extendes the life and colour of the bag.
