Spanish term or phrase:asoma la piel anteada
Un bolso en cuya cara visible asoma la piel anteada
(On the front of the handbag) shines the buff-coloured leather
I would change it quite a lot. The Spanish sentence doesn´t seem that common anyway... especially in the context of a handbag description. For this reason, I think that you are free to change it a bit "a tu antojo".
Also, "shine" can be used with "leather".
