This sounds like dye transfer from clothing-

Leather Master Leather Dye Transfer Cleaner - (A-Aniline / Non-Coated) (P-Protected / Coated) dye transfer is a specialized cleaner and stain remover designed to eliminate colour and dye transfers on light types leathers. Use for the removal of blue jean transfer, newspaper print and deep stains like mustard on protected finished leathers. This product works, even when nothing else will. Often on light-colour leathers, it appears that the colour is coming off the leather because you can only see the surface. What has actually happened is a transfer of a lighter colour to the leather's surface from blue jeans and/or newspaper print.

If the dye has permeated then the finish should be softened to help release the dye (Leather Master Soft Touch) Using a strong solvent on leather that has a stain or dye transfer will do two things; cause the dye to ‘bleed’ further into the surface making it even more difficult to remove, and it may damage the finish requiring replacement.
