Kourtney Kardashian's Faded Square Tote

I wanted to do a post on how Balenciaga agneau leather ages over time. A great example popped up after seeing pictures of Kourtney carrying her black Square Tote that she uses as Mason's diaper bag since he was born almost 2 years ago.  The reality star and son were spotted returning to their hotel in New York City on September 7, 2011. 

We can clearly see that the bag has dramatically faded to a dull splotchy gray!  When owning these bags, the Agneau leather aka lambskin is more delicate than other types of leather. From my experience, Balenciaga bags wear the quickest on the buckles, corners and also over time the handles can become sticky/darkened. I recommend using a UV protecting spray called Collinil to help prevent fading.  I've heard great things about it and just purchased a bottle myself.
