Thanks for the tips! I have just purchased the apple conditioner online , can't wait for it to arrive.
I am really worried about cracking , and almost wanted to apply baby oil on it

There are instructions on the bottom of the can. I really am pleased with this stuff. It's not the easiest to use b/c it's thick and once it starts to dry it becomes sticky which can pick up lint, hair, dust, etc. so careful application is essential, but it seems to be a layer of shiny gloss that makes imperfections and color softening less noticeable.

For an easy to apply leather conditioner, I really like Apple Care which when used as directed seems to moisturize the leather without changing anything else about it. I don't like those scented products or those that change the look and/or feel of the leather, so it's important to test every product first in a place you won't see.

My 2011 bag is very dry and I've applied Apple Care Conditioner on the body and Balenciaga's Nourishing Cream on the corners and side trim. I am pleased with the results (less color loss and less white-vein distressing) and plan to re-apply before putting the bag back into the dust bag when I switch bags later.

baby oil is for your skin, not your handbag's :p

Does anybody else feels that there is a gap between the rest of the brand and the bags? I mean, when you see the season shoes, they are OUT THERE, but the bags seem to be in an alterable way..

I have a velo and I use it for all of my meetings! It carries everything, laptop, make up case, books.. everything you can imagine!
Perfect bag, its smaller than the work, but larger than the city

And Seafoam is absolutely lovely! Love that color!

^^ thanks lucy92!
I would like to buy the seafoam or mint green (collection of 2004 I think).
Are they standard colours? Do you think it's still available in one of the Paris stores? Thanks in advance!

^No, they were 2004 colors, or at least seafoam was. Your only option is eBay or consignment stores.

I'm thinking of splurging on one. I can't decide on style/size or color though. Any suggestions? I want it roomy and big but not overly big. I already have the Givenchy Nightingale in Medium and think that size is perfect.

Thanks in advance.

I also have the Nightingale in medium, and prefer something that size. My favorite Bbags are the City and the Part Time - the Velo is also roughly the same size, so it depends on what dimensions/silouette you prefer.
I would choose the city, if I were to buy just one - it's classic.

How would you describe the size of the Giant Arena City? Is the shoulder strap very long? I;m looking for a longish bag on my shoulder and something bug enough to carry my things in (cell, keys, wallet ipad) but not be bulky.

Any images of celebs carrying the Giant Arena City for comparison? Thanks in advance!
