Chanel Classic Boy Bag

Chanel Classic Boy Bag

The Boy Chanel Bag was first introduced in 2012. Back then, the Boy Bags didn’t look like the ones we’ve fallen in love with today. They were released in smooth leather and the boy clasp lacked the CC signature logo. There were also mix opinions about the bag, but several seasons later the boy rose to its iconic status and became the house’s third iconic handbag. The Boy Chanel Bag is as famous as the Classic Flap Bag and the classic choice (combination of black quilted leather in medium size) is sold-out in almost every boutique. This bag is now part of the Classic Collection, which means it’s available in every season.

The Story Of The Boy Flap Bag

Released in the Spring 2012 Collection, the Boy Chanel Bag is inspired by the life of Coco Chanel just like the other iconic handbags. It was created based on her boyish attitude and as Karl Lagerfeld explained: ‘she picked this up from Boy Cape, which was the love of her love’. So the name ‘Boy’ of this bag might be inspired by the name of her lover: ‘Boy Cape’.

Coco Chanel was also fond of playing with masculine styles, changing them into lady’s wear. At her first shop in Paris, she made a lot of sportswear-inspired clothing and uses the jersey to craft them. This was considered a shock because jersey was usually used to make men’s underwear. As Karl Lagerfeld puts it: ‘Chanel became famous because Coco Chanel made dresses from jersey and jersey was used to make men’s underwear’.

The Boy Design

The Boy Chanel Bags look entirely different than any other Chanel’s creation. The bag is quilted, but the edges are refined with smooth striped leather. It comes with a shoulder strap but also large shiny boyish chain. The clasp is also a new invention; it’s bolder and bigger. The sides are made with six studs. The Boy Clasp is now considered as another signature of Chanel. Unlike the Classic Flap Bag, the Boy Bag doesn’t come with a back pocket or an extra pocket on the inside flap.

The classic combination is the color black in gold hardware and quilted leather. The size medium or the medium plus is the most common choices. The Boy looks stylish, chic and classy. It’s very notable when carrying on the street. The design matches like the other iconic’s to any clothing in your wardrobe. It goes great with dresses, casual and formal clothing. It’s also the perfect accessory for special occasions like weddings.

The Boy Chanel Bag increases sharply in prices every year, just like the Classic Flap Bag. Therefore, it’s a beautiful investment accessory and it holds value. Due to its huge demand, this bag is sometimes limited available.

Each season Chanel will introduce a new Boy Bag. This bag is now available in different materials like velvet and different designs like chain around. The Boy Bag is also made in Chevron quilting.

The Interior And Pockets

Unlike the Chanel Classic Flap Bag and the Reissue 2.55 Bag, the interior of the Boy Bag is much less complex. The interior features one large compartment for all your essentials. And it also comes with a small zip pocket for important items that needs an extra security.

Because of its simpler interior structure, the main compartment quite large. The Boy Bags are ideal everyday handbags because of its size and its practicability. The bag can be used as day-to-night bag and transport all your necessities from A to B.

The Boy Chanel Collection consists of four sizes: small, old medium, new medium and the large size.

In the past, there were only two choices; it was either the small, medium or large size. The New Medium was introduced in 2014 and is also known as the Medium Plus (SA in Europe calls it the Medium Plus). This size is larger than the original Medium size.

Since the introduction of the ‘New Medium’ size, the previous medium is also called the ‘Old Medium’.

The Leathers And Materials

The common leather choice for the Boy Chanel Bag is grained calfskin. This leather is durable but also very smooth. It’s like between the leather lambskin and caviar. But due to huge demand and love for the caviar leather, Chanel has also added this option to the iconic Boy Chanel Quilted Bag. Caviar is stronger and also durable, this leather feels very hard and is scratch-resistance.
