Chanel Le Boy Flap Bag


The enigmatic Le Boy is out and about to get you ready this season! The bag, which was released in 2011 as another brainchild of Karl Lagerfeld, is designed as a unique double-chained flap bag which also serves as a handheld clutch. It’s becoming a fashion staple among solid bag collectors and new aficionados alike, mainly because of its eye-catching design (which is still very wearable) and versatility. No wonder these babies sell like pancakes every single year.

Every season, a new take on the basic design emerges, and with these transformations, loyal customers couldn’t seem to get enough. One thing stands true to all forms though – its solid, durable structure, which gives it the upper hand amongst other ‘coveted’ bags. If you’re looking for an edgy piece you could use, the Le Boy is the answer. Priced around $5200 USD via Chanel boutique.

    thank you for your information. after long search i got my classic boy bag in black from chanel boutique 😀 but i’ve a question the fourth picture above. the first and the second red boy bag, what’s the difference between them? maybe the material?

      The difference is the style; one is quilted and the other is not. The quilted version is also available in all season, the other one is retro and will probably not be available anymore in the next season. Also the bag is the original boy bag, its the first boy that Chanel has released long time ago. The quilted is also available in different leather, but also calfskin. The flat boy with original clasp is also made from calfskin.

    Thanks Cynthia for your reply !
    There is the “new medium” and medium is that correct? Which medium are you referring to?
    Thanks so much!

      Hi Lena, the new medium is called the Medium Plus, is a bit bigger than the ‘old medium’. I am referring to old medium.

    Is the boy bag going to eventually be a Classic bag?
    I’m looking into purchasing one ..but I’m so confused and can’t decide which one I want..if you had to choose which one would it be? What color and size?
    Thanks ,
    The confused and indecisive

      Hi Lena, the boy quilted flap bag is a classic bag, you need to choose in black. The boy bags above are not classic, they’re seasonal. The original clasp has been away for like a few years now. Boy quilted, black in medium size is fine, also navy blue if black is sold-out, which usually is.

    Thank you for an excellent and informative website 🙂 I just had a look at Chanel’s website and saw the latest collection of boy bags. My question is, will the previous boy bags, such as the small boy bag (quilted and black caviar) be in stock in boutiques or are these the only boy bags that will be in stock from now on? I know Stockholm (where I live) is finally opening a Chanel boutique this fall/winter and I’m looking forward to my first visit 🙂

      Hi Leyla, no of course not. The other boy bags will also be available (if the previous collection) and also the boy’s from the permanent collection. The new release is just an addition to the current stock. Hope this helps and keep us informed.
