hmmm so there's a way to take care of an lv purse so that the handles won't turn REALLY dark but just honey coloured? oh wow how do i do that? do i need to clean/condition the handles? also how does all the vachetta on 1 purse (handles, and the part that joins the handles and the purse...the triangular pieces) turn the same colour when most ppl tend to touch the handles the most? not sure if my question makes sense... :X
The dark handles occur because of dirt in your hands. To avoid getting the dark/dirty look, make sure your hands are clean before you use the purse, and condition/clean every week or so.
The vachetta of one purse isn't usually even throughout the bag. You have the right idea, the area that is touched the most will tend to be darker than the other parts of the bag. If you want to get an even patina throughout, suntan the bag for a couple hours to obtain a patina or wrap the handles with a scarf or something so that your hands arent really on the handles.
