Chanel Boy Bag

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Some people dream of owning a Chanel, others have a covetable collection of handbags sitting on display in their closets, and though rare, there are those who think it’s overly played-out.

For me, I’m more of a dreamer and collector, and often find myself flipping through the pages of Vogue and Elle wanting to purchase the next Chanel ‘it’ bag for myself. 

In Fall of 2011, Karl Lagerfield introduced Chanel’s latest it bag, the Boy Flap Bag inspired by a hunter’s cartridge bag.  It quickly made its way onto editorials, tabloids—slung across countless celebrities shoulders, and last but not least, my daydreams... Removed from conventional feminine clich├ęs, the Boy Bag paved the path for a new generation of Chanel Bags catering more to us millennials, than our parents/grandparent’s generation.  He stayed true to Coco Chanel’s iconic design, but added a masculine twist to the classic line of bags.  While maintaining a structured/clean silhouette, Le Boy, featured a chunkier, matte, chain strap, that could be worn as a shoulder or cross body bag.  Instead of the classic twist closure, Lagerfield introduced a new clasp closure for convenience. The bag originally came in neutral shades of black, white, and grey in 4 different sizes, but has since evolved…

The Boy Bag continues to fly off shelves across the globe, and with popular demand, comes an endless supply of bags in almost any fabric/color/skin/detailing available.  Your bag can range anywhere from low 4,000’s to 9,000+, if you’re looking for something more exotic, but here’s some stats if you’re looking for the more traditional offerings:
