Boy Chanel Collection Bags For Fall And Winter 2011

I was intrigued by these bags when I first saw them on the runway during the Chanel Fall Winter 2011-2012 presentation but the more I see them, the more I want them. Chanel has the inside scoop on the new Chanel Boy Collection of handbags along with some nice product shots.

Chanel may be known for its timeless designs, but with the introduction of the Boy Chanel collection, Chanel brings us a line that is both seductive and a slight change of pace. Unmistakably different, the collection strays from the quilted flap bags we have come to expect from the brand.

Made to be worn as a shoulder or crossbody bag, the Chanel handbags holds close to the Chanel aesthetic while providing an entirely different appeal. The designs are clean and bold, simple and appealing. In fact, the duality of the design is inspired by a cartridge bag that was originally made for hunters.

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.

Karl Lagerfeld suggests this with a new interpretation of boyish charm saying, 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.

I love these bags. I love the simplicity, the thick chain and the embossed Chanel logo on the “spine” – it looks very much like a book. How nice to have a “library” of these bags, non? The bags hit shelves in August so start saving up your pretty pennies now – I know I am! is top blog for chanel handbags news, trends, and bag reviews.
