Help me keep my white leather chair looking awesome!

Ok, so... I just picked up a nice reproduction of a Barcelona chair (Barce-clone-a!), and it's upholstered in an ivory-colored aniline leather. So soft!
Unfortunately, I am now scared to goddamn death to sit in it. Dye transfer from jeans worries me, and my belt even left a big black streak on some of the raised piping. It came off eventually with some careful rubbing and a damp paper towel, but what can I do in the future? What if I don't catch it in time?
What sort of cleaners and protectants are good? Do they work well? Is there a way to seal the cushions?
I am thinking now that aniline was a bad choice on my part... Am I doomed forever to be afraid to sit in my chair? WHAT IF SOMEBODY ELSE SITS IN IT??!
