Le Boy Chanel Handbag Collection - 2011
Coming this Fall, a whole new line of Chanel bags to covet. Based on a hunting cartridge style originally carried by Coco Chanel herself, the new Chanel Boy bags are made to embody the androgynous charm the designer was known for.
“Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact it is the very spirit of Chanel. She got it from Boy Capel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel,” Karl Lagerfeld explains of his inspiration.
The Boy Chanel is produced in three sizes, the smallest functioning as a purse and the largest as a tote. Staying true to Chanel, the colors palette includes a flat red, deep black, intense grey, lead green, and clean ivory in glazed calfskin. Price range is $2500 – $4300 and the bags will hit Chanel boutiques in September
