Oh Boy!

“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 Chapel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the BoyChanel.”

-Karl Lagerfeld, 2011

The “BOY” was first introduced for the Chanel 2011 Fall/Winter ready-to-wear collection. The bag originally inspired by cartridge bags used for hunting. Since its debut, BOY’s have given a whole new meaning to the classic Chanel aesthetic we all know and love. Staying true to the iconic quilts and chains, the BOY brings an exciting new appeal to the world of Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld has continued to re-introduce the bag in coming collections with new colors, textures and fabrications. BOY bags may be worn over the shoulder or cross-body and now come in five different sizes. With a bold look and unexpected change to the brands timeless designs, BOY has made a place for itself among the most classic and coveted Icon Flaps.

THE BOY IS HERE TO STAY...after all, he was Coco’s great love!

How do you feel about these beautiful BOYS?! Will the combination of femininity and masculinity be enough for Chanel lovers like us to proclaim these jaw droppers worthy of being “Classic”? Or are they another one of Karl’s fabulous fads? Are you sticking to your Icon Flaps or toughing it out with the big Boys?! Comment below!

What inspired this BOY discussion? It might be my ‘deep contemplation’ of yet another… should I?

“‘to Boy’ or ‘not to Boy'”, that is the question…

  • Wooow, what a super Boy origin explanation!!! I already knew the story behind it ( “the Boy manic” had to know it hahaha) but I admit I didn´t know that now there are FIVE different sizes!!! The more the merrier hehe
    I loved the “THE BOY IS HERE TO STAY…after all, he was Coco’s great love” , I share the same opinion, I believe it will become a CC classic, despite it´s femininity meets masculinity… it´s the most incredible bag ever designed… I´ve been fascinated by it ever since it first came out and each collection makes me more and more breathless…and your collection is simply amazing, it´s sooo hard to pick a favorite (though the metallic pink and green makes my heart skip 100 beats hahaha don´t let the other Boys read this or they´ll be mad at me and I love them just as much) :)
    As for your doubt: ohhhh yeahhh TO BOY!!! always to Boy!!! I´m excited just by the thought of another beauty in your Boy fam :)
