FIRST LOOK: Chanel's "Boy" Bag Collection - Fall 2011
To all the 2.55 fans out there...you may have a new Chanel bag to covet!
The brand is releasing a new line of handbags this fall. Based on the hunting cartridge style originally carried by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel herself, the 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 glazed calfskin clutches, purses and totes will be available in a red, grey and ivory, and will range from $2500 to $4300.
