For all passionate lovers of Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, this could be a very exciting development or this could evoke a temper tantrum, afterall, we’ve come to love our classic quilted bag and full chain strap. It’s the one we dream about and if we don’t have it already, hope to acquire in the sweet someday. That’s the signature of the Chanel label, Coco Chanel and the timeless Parisian chic style.
But hey we welcome change and this change is actually pretty, the new bag range from Chanel. Wise Karl Lagerfeld is quick to remind the many devoted fans of Coco Chanel that this bag is still all about her. This here is the most quoted part of Lagerfeld’s statement about the new boy bag, “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,” Hmmmm….yeah but we won’t stop loving the good old 2.55 bag ;-)
The new range is available in classic colours of red, grey, and ivory in glazed calfskin clutches, purses, and totes, they will hit Chanel boutiques this Fall with prices ranging from $2,500-$4,300. You might want to keep an eye on Chanel.com to get updates on this chic new development ;-)
