Must haves #23 Chanel Boy Flap Bag & Prices

March 8, 2013  |  CHANEL, FLAP BAGS


Not long ago Chanel introduced their new boy bags. The name was simple, bold, and you get confused when hearing the first time. Uhhh boy?, seems like Chanel is interested in entering the boys market. But after seeing one of their banners, things started to get clear. It’s not only for boys, but for girls too.

It is what it says. Covered with colors that are deeper and stronger. Lined with textures that feels rough and tough. And not to forget Chanel’s special ingredient, elegant and chic. Combine that together and a stunning, stylish masculine bag has born.

The boy bag have become increasingly popular not only among boys, but also girls. The bag you see above is the new flap bag for boys. Quilted and painted in velvet, carrying such an item will convince anyone that you are innocent. The bag comes with a unique chain and a shoulder strap. Outstanding mixing up with different casual styles. I am already imagining, a bit light colored tight jeans underneath your Chanel ballet flat, a white top and brown/black outwear to finish the style. The bag is tempting and hard to resist.

Color: velvet

Size (small): 7.9” x 4.7” x 2.8”
Size (medium): 9.8” x 5.5” x 2.8”
Size (large): 12” x 8.3” x 3.5”

Price (small): $3,700.00
Price (medium): $3,900.00
Price (large): $4,500.00

Available in Chanel boutiques.

  1. Hi
    I just purchased this boy bag blue velvet from someone and would like to know if it’s real…
    I’m posting pics

  2. Hi Alex. I need your help. I can’t make up my mind to get the GHW with red Chanel boy bag medium size or SHW with red Chanel boy bag medium size ? Malaysia Klcc Chanel boutique actually help me transfer this bag from Hong Kong for my exchange, because only Hong Kong have this pre fall collection available. unfortunately I realize this bag have a minor defect.
    Thus, they now offer me to exchange another color or they help me to repair the bag. I only interested in red color that’s why I m considering either to proceed the repair or get the latest red color Chanel boy with silver hardware. I heard some people said Chanel boy should match with silver hardware. I’m confuse.

  3. Hi Alex:) do you know the exact style number for chanel le boy bag in caviar leather gold hardware and red color? In medium size. I am asking a male friend to buy it for me and he wants to be sure that he will be able to buy the exact bag I want. Thank you

    • The quilted one? I only know in calfskin, but do not know in caviar. The Medium Boy Quilted style code is: A67086.

      For red, golden hardware and medium size: A67086 Y08808 97105

      Before you buy, let him send you some pictures to verify first.

      Keep me informed!

  4. Dear All,
    does anyone knows the pricing in seoul? After the tax refund is it more worthy to buy in Korea than in Singapore?

  5. Hi,

    I have a question about an authenticity of a chanel bag?
    This is girl is selling me a boy bag, but it has Chanel written in bold silver letters, on the bag.

    Is that weird or fake? It is not written in the front, its written on the folded area on front of the bag, where the chain usually sits.

    Please let me know. thanks

  6. Hi,

    I love the chanel le boy medium in black lamb..
    I like the older one with smaller quilts.
    Does anyone know if those are still available or something similar looking?
    and does anybody knows how the inside/lining of the old or new version looks like? I dont want to get scammed!
    Please help!

    • Hi Shanna, the classic boy bag quilted are still available. Are you going to buy pre-owned?

      • Hi,

        Yes I was looking for a pre-owned but there are so much diffrent interior designs. So I’m not sure which ones are authentic and which aren’t. I saw that The “new” mediums have a grey inside with a grey label. But I don’t want The new medium because of The bigger quilts.

  7. I would like to ask if there are silver or bronze color of the boy chanel and chain only comes silver or there is gold ? thanks alot

  8. Some people pretend that they have received a gift and don’t like it and they just wanna sell but it was scam for you too look at it and buy to them it’s either stolen or fake, my cousin was scammed the same way pls be careful guys to those people pretend .

    • Hi Koolet, seriously? Can you share more information about this?

    • I’m not scamming anyone. The bag is 100% genuine with all tags attached, in its original packaging, sitting in my closet. I truly just don’t want a $4,000 bag that I deem impractical. I’m sorry your cousin was scammed, but there are good people in this world. Not everybody is out to get someone.

  9. Hello, my sister recently have bought me a Chanel boy flap bag (black and white) as a gift, but it’s not my style. It was purchased at Neiman Marcus. It has never been used. I’m too embarassed to tell her I don’t want it and I can’t return it to Neiman Marcus without a receipt. Any suggestions on how I can sell it to purchase something more my style?

    • She will eventually know that you have sold it, shouldn’t you just keep it, just because she is your sister.

      I really want to see a couple of pictures of this bag, if you can post it on the forum, that will be great.

      But you can sell it in consignment store, re-sellers and even on Ebay. But you will always get less than you pay for.

      • Alex, thank you for your reply. Sure, I can post pictures. I’ll try and do that now :). As far as me keeping the bag is concerned…my sister gave me the bag out of guilt-so it’s not like the bag has sentimental value (lol). I’d rather cash it in and purchase an item(s) that I know I can get some use out of.

        • Lol, she must have done something very ‘BAD’ to compensate her guilt with a Chanel boy bag. To get the most value, I would just take it to Ebay (sell it locally and face to face to avoid scammers), wait patiently for the right buyer and then use the money to buy something else.

      • I posted a few pics in a new thread!

  10. Hi I recently was brought the boy bag as a gift but not sure of the authenticity! The lining of my 12″ boy bag is in a baby blue fabric with a zip pocket and mobile phone pocket. Is this normal? Many thanks

  11. hi,

    my friend is going to paris on 1st of July, i just wanna know whats the price for quilted chanel boy in small and medium? TIA

  12. Hi sassy how much is chanel boy in medium and jumbo cost in Paris? I’m going there end of june thanks!

  13. Hey sassy!
    I have a question, do you know, how much the boy bag small in denim costs? I’m in looove with it but I recently bought another bag and just wanted to know how much it would be…
    Thank you!

    • I am not sure about denim, but I know that the small bags are around: $2,600 USD. Hope this helps. The denim is a great bag, which style do you think will match?

      p.s. which bag did you bought?

      • Thank you! I hope it costs that much! I really love the bag but I don’t know if its available at my local store.. Do you know if its a seasonal style?
        and what do you mean with which style?

        I bought the LV Alma Bag BB in vernis amarante! :)

        • I think it’s that price, generally chanel flap is a chanel flap, but then in different styles. Some leather are more expensive, but for the denim?

          Style, I mean which casual style clothes do you think will match.

          The denim seems to be seasonal, it’s not on the boy bag website of Chanel.

          BTW, love your Alma bag in vernis. Good choice!

  14. Sorry,I mean the card number holo158xxxxx

  15. Can I ask the price for Chanel classic medium black caviar holo15? p.s. it’s not a boy bag right?


    • Hi Nan, you lost me, what is holo15?

      • sorry, I mean Chanel classic medium black caviar holo158xxxxx
        (number of card).

        • Hi, first off, the title: Chanel classic medium black caviar doesn’t seems like it’s a boy bag. However, Chanel always put very easy title on the hologram, so many people who bought a classic chanel bag doesn’t know what it is. If you can upload your image through phone on our forum, I can immediately see if it’s a boy bag or not.

  16. The Boy bag is named after Boy Capel, Coco Chanel’s love of her life….not as in Boy & Girl…..

  17. Hi, may i know how much is the price for medium chanel boybag in singapore? I’m thinking of getting it for my birthday. thanks.

  18. Hi there, may I know the price range for medium Boy Chanel Flap Bag of 4.7×7.9×2.4?

    My girlfriend has been giving me hint and I would like to get her one for our coming 5th years anniversary.

    Would like to know the price range so that I won’t face any awkward situation like didnt bring enough cash or credit card limit not enough.

    I’m from Malaysia by the way, your help will be appreciate.

    • Hi Enjoe Tan,

      You are good friend! I need more friends like you =). But are you planning to buy the bag in Malaysia?

      • I’m guessing so as I don’t have any source of getting it from overseas and I’m kinda afraid of getting scam or con into getting replica bags.

        Well, few thousands ain’t small amount for a 21years old teen anyway, so I prefer a more secure way to get it.

        You have any better suggestion?

        • I totally agree with you. Rather buy straight from the Chanel boutique than risk overseas. I don’t have the prices in Malaysia and because they can be more expensive than US or EU, I can’t make any estimation.

          You need to call the Chanel boutique for that.

        • But if you need to be sure how much money you need to take, the boy flap is no more expensive than the reissue 225. The reissue 226 in Malaysia cost RM16860. If you take that amount, you should have more than enough. Maybe get yourself something nice too =P

          • Hi Sassy, I need your help, I recently fell on some vintage chanel bags and flaps and all what not, before going back to the USA, I want to know prices so if i find more,i can purchase and recently, I currently found about 5 bags so happy cuz i have spent over 30 thousand at chanel with the last 4yrs so these finds are great. I just need help with telling me the exact informations on the bags if possible the years it came out. pls email me at the email above pls thanks

          • Hi Ding, I do not know how to help you, because I do not know which bag you want information from:

            I have here listed all the classics:

  19. Hi,I am about to get a Velvet Boy small in black and sell my Mini Flap to fond it up. But I am a bit unsure wether the Boy bags out of Velvet are only seasonal or they are going to be continued each year as classic collections… Is it worth to give the mini away for Boy? Any advises?

    Thanks and best regards,

    • Hi Olivia, do you have an substitute bag for the mini flap, like the Chanel medium/jumbo flap?

      • Hi Sassy,

        Thank very much for reply and apologize for the late Response!

        I used to have a Jumbo in black Lamkskin and SHW single flap, damm me I sold it last year because I think lamb is too delicate which is not for me! Well, besides this Mini I don’t own any classic flap bag now besides the GST in GHW, which I am usually carrying around…

        I want a Boy flap for sure, as the youngest Chanel’s classic collection I believe it will lasts years!

        Now comes to the question: Boy in Velvet? Yes I saw a lot of celebs are carrying this around but is it just a Hype? Will the value of the bag doesn’t seem to maintained? I don’t know if I am ready to throw Money on a non-entire-leather-made Chanel…..

        Thanks Sassy your advise will be somehow crutial for my decision!!!

        Best regards,


        • Well Olivia, I would say this to you:

          Don’t make the mistake TWICE! I love the chanel jumbo in black and shw, either in lambskin or caviar!!! But the mini flap is not only timeless and a classic, but it is also discontinued. Your are holding a piece of treasure, an art that can’t be bought anymore. So keep the mini, don’t sell it!

          The Chanel boy bag has been around for a couple of years now, Chanel keeps releasing new bags each season, with new colors. The boy bag does get more expensive, but it’s unlike the classic flap (all of the classics are timeless, Chanel sometimes introduce new colors or skin, but the color black in shw or ghw will always remain timeless).

          I really love the boy bag in velvet too, I would save up the money to buy it, not selling your mini.

  20. Hi hi,

    Do you have name and price for chanel handbag A67742

    Many Thanks

  21. Hi,

    I would like to ask your opinion whether I should go for Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap or Chanel Boy Bag.. I really adore the classic flap however looking for current fashion trend, chanel boy is a must have bag… so i hope you can help me dear by giving your expert opinion… thanks dear =)

    • To be honest, I would buy both bags. The Chanel jumbo is getting much more expensive each year, and the bag itself is timeless. You can’t go wrong with that. So I would get a jumbo first. Later on, you can still get the Chanel boy bag and if the trend really continues, then it’s more than worth it. But if you buy the boy flap first and the trend ends a couple years later, note that you are going to pay much more for the jumbo.

  22. Hi,

    Would like to ask whether Chanel boy in different skin, set the same price?
    Calf skin more expensive? Or it is the same price?

    And i notice that Chanel boy have different pattern on the front of the bag, some is wave, some has square, is that indicate year or series of production?

    Please advice.

    Thank youuuu


    • I think it’s like the jumbo flap, prices shouldn’t be much different unless you choose exotic leathers like crocodile skin.

      Which specific Chanel boy bag are you referring to that has different patterns?

  23. Hi may I know what the prices are like for the chanel boy in Europe currently? In calfskin and for small and medium sizes. Thank you so much for you help!

    • Hi Jess, prices in US tends to be a bit higher. So if you take the prices listed in this article and change it to euro, you will have a good estimation. And then substract 12% for VAT return if you are a NON-EU citizen.

      • Hello! Thank you so much for the reply! My aunt is currently in Italy and I have asked her to help me purchase a Chanel Boy but with what I am reading on forums about the insane popularity of the Boys, I think my chances are really low:( Le sigh…

        • Hi Jess, you will get the Chanel boy bag. But the question is, are you getting the bag you want. =) So did you told your aunt which bag you like?

          • Yup I did! I’m quite boring so I just wanted those plain ones without any embellishments in single colour (Black, Red, Blue or Beige) and in calfskin or lambskin (Medium size as I am short and petite) because I never really liked Patent. But those seemed to be the highly popular ones too! So depressing haha…

          • Hi Jess, you are not boring, the colors your pick are gorgeous and matches to many clothing styles. I really love the medium size as well as lambskin. But you don’t need to baby your bag too much if you get the calfskin, which is also lovely btw. I am curious which bag you are going to get, so pls let me know =)

          • Definitely I will! That is if my aunt manage to get one of the coveted babies:)

          • I am very excited for you, let me know when you got the bag. I gotta see it btw =D

          • Ok this got to be the most unlucky thing ever. My aunt actually did manage to get a Chanel Boy but she was robbed 4 days prior to flying back!! All her purchases (I think some LVs, Prada and my Chanel Boy:/ ) were stolen from her room as it got broken into when she wasn’t around! Depressing but luckily she is fine and safe and back… That’s the most important:) I guess I have to wait till July where I will be going to Italy (for the first time!). Crossing my fingers that Chanel would not increase their price anytime soon!

          • WAAAAAT!!!!!!! No way!!! Where did she stayed btw? In a hotel right?

          • YES A HOTEL! I really could not believe my ears when I heard it. She was the most unlucky one because she left all her purchases out in the bedroom (as she is afraid to squash them in the luggage) and hence all was gone. Her travel mates had their luggages slashed though:(( My poor aunt is so unlucky! She bought really a lot of bags and wallets for her children and husband as well. We are now just thankful that she is physically unhurt and back:)

          • I am also glad she is oke. But you aunt should sue the Hotel, how can they allow such things happen. Where are the securities, I mean it’s a hotel right?

  24. Hi my friend going to italy and i ask her to help me buy chanel boy, and how much tax refund can she get?

  25. hi
    may i ask which material is better?
    i had read some blog n forum
    it turns out that Boy Flap bags got few problems, like “bubbles” and dents in the leather etc

    can u advise me?

    im looking for my 1st chanel n i like boy chanel


    • Hi Winni, do you know which leather has the bubbles and dents you read about?

      If you worry about the leather, then calfskin might be a good choice. It’s much more durable.

  26. I absolutely love your page!!!
    Do you know the price of the small Chanel boy bag in Europe? Thank you in advance.
    Besides, can I ask you an expert advice? :)
    I’ve started my bag collection and I’m a bit unsure where to go further…
    I’ve a damier Speedy 25 and a small vintage Lady Dior in black with which I like to go out in the evening. Besides I’ve a damier azur Neverfull, a black vintage Chanel (not sure about the name, quite big with two pockets in the front) and a beige Céline Cabas that I use during the day (when I’m not simply wearing a Longchamp backpack for school…jeje).
    I don’t have loads of money for purses so I usually think carefully before each purchase…
    I’m kind of in doubt about getting a Fendi 2jours – do you think the fever will last and it’ll become.. ‘a classic’, so to say? I’ve the same feeling towards the Céline Luggage! I’m going to France in July and I’m not sure what to save for! I’d like to start investing in a more preppy/classic style now…
    My second question is about Chanel: is it worth it to buy a vintage one or should I wait until I’ve enough to buy a new one? I’m actually considering the Chanel boy instead of the classic, what do you think?
    Sorry to bother but they’re sooo expensive in my country that I’d love to decide before travelling!

    • I am not sure the price in Europe, but I can give you an indication based on my experience: €2,800 (+ VAT), so exclude VAT and your price will be around €2,400 EUR.

      About the Fendi 2 jours, we just did an interview with Nicole who owns one. If you drop a comment over there, she will answer all of your questions.

      I have seen people trying to choose between the Hermes Cabag, Fendi 2Jours and the Chanel cassic Chanel Jumbo flap. So I do think the bag will become a classic, especially because Fendi keeps re-introducing it. I saw Nicole wear it and it’s a gorgeous bag. But the three brands are totally different, also from price perspective.

      If you want to go classic, I highly recommend the Celine luggage bag. You can be sure that the Celine luggage bag is a classic as it has been on the market for a while.

      Chanel: what do you mean by vintage? Do you mean an used bag or a Chanel bag with vintage look?

      The Chanel boy bag is rather new, but it’s been very hot in the market recently. You need to match the bag to your style, not the other way around. The boy bags are a bit more masculine and the colors are stronger and deeper. While the Chanel 2.55 reissue (which I totally adore) are more feminine. More over, the reissue has been in the market since 1955, that’s a very long history. You can be sure to see the 2.55 for the next twenty years at least!

      BTW, do you have any idea which Chanel classic you want to buy?

      • Hey! Thanks for your sweet and attentive answer!
        Well, when I said vintage I meant used, not.always looking cute and vintage… ; )
        I live in Sao Paulo and a classic medium costs around 6500USD while an used costs around 2500USD. I guess the best is to wait and buy in Europe…
        I plan to get a medium because the jumbo is to big for me..jeje
        I LOVE the interview you recommended me. Thanks again!
        I’ll probably get a micro luggage and a 2 jours this July, and the next time.I travel I’ll get the Chanel. Although I keep asking if it’d be better to buy the Chanel before anything else because it’s such a great investiment and the increasing so fast!!!

        • Hi Nadia, yes! I was about to say the same thing too. The Chanel price increase is so fast and so much that it’s a great investment to buy now. But I love how you pick both the celine micro luggage and the Fendi 2 jours. Just buy both of them =D. The medium flap is not so spacey, so you will be able to only carry your important essentials. But the jumbo double flap is a bit bigger and heavier. Do you have plans when to come to Europe?

          • Hey! I’m going in July for a two weeks french course in Antibes! :)
            It’s funny how ‘trendy’ the 2jours is becoming after some key women (Chiara Ferragni, Olivia Palermo, Helena Bordon, …) started wearing it! We still don’t have either Céline or Fendi in Brazil, so that makes them quite appreciated and exclusive around here too!!
            Maybe I can stop buying food until July and buy the three bags…jajaja
            Thanks for everything! Wish you a great week!

          • hahaha =P. I love food too!

            I checked Antibes (Monaco) out and it’s a great place to be, especially now that summer is coming up. It’s hard to belief that Celine and Fendi haven’t hit Brazil yet. And if you are in Antibes anyway, I think you have plans going to Paris. Probably 4 hours traveling by train.

          • Hi! :)
            I’m so excited to tell you this.
            There’re two new bags in my collection!
            The first one is a nude Céline Box. I know, I changed my mind completely since the last time I’ve written to you, but at some point I realized that the Céline mini and the Fendi 2 Jours are quite big for me (I’m 63 in tall).
            I ‘ve also found this gorgeous Chanel Quilted Single Flap Lambskin Handbag in bordeaux color! It’s second hand but in great condition and goes with everything! <3
            So… now I'm wondering about getting a black miss dior (the smallest one) during my trip to Europe (although I also have an eye on the Chanel Boy – oh, I must say I felt more in love with it after seeing the new video with Keira Knightley).
            That's it, I thought you'd be happy to know it – and I confess that not so many friend understand my bag addiction!!! :D

          • OMG, this is totally different than you’ve told me before. I am getting excited just by listening to your story. Your Chanel single flap in bordeaux, does it looks like this:


            I’ve written several articles about the Miss Dior, I’ve to say that is a gorgeous bag. I would love to have a Chanel classic and a Miss Dior. If you have me pick between the Miss Dior and the Chanel boy, it will be very difficult!!

            BTW, can you post the Celine box on the forum, because I really want to see the bag.

            P.S. Nadia!!! We loving handbags is just BOYS dropping their jaws when they see a Lambourghini passing by.

  27. Hi, is it good calf craked skin for chanel boy?

  28. I liked your Facebook page,so I can post it on there perhaps?

    It’s very addictive,dangerous!!!


  29. I bought one today! They didn’t have that much boys in stock but I had to get it today or I wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight ha ha
    Luckily they had the quilted boy in bronze medium one,so I bought it for AUD4140
    I’m in love!!!!
    I’m getting another one possibly next month for the blue one,already ordered one!

    But that ivory white is just amazing!!! God help me!!

    • Congratulations!!! I know the Boy bag is addicted!!! OMg I love the quilted bronze, if there was a way I could see your bag.

  30. Thank you! I will def let you know :)

    I’m excited! It has been a while since my last chanel purchased :)

    What colour would you suggest me to get? I have the Classic Jumbo in Beige and 2.55 (225) in black.


  31. I’m going to the Chanel store tomorrow here in Perth,lets see what I can find!!

    I really want to buy the bad boy lol

    Hope they have nice ones in stock,hate waiting!!


  32. Hi may I ask is this large shopping tote with flap a new collection?

  33. Hi Dear,

  34. Hi, I just purchased a brand-new Chanel boy bag. G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.
