The Handbag Worth Buying: The Chanel Boy

While the Chanel Boy handbag is technically not part of Chanel’s “classic line” – it certainly feels like one to Chanel lovers. Created by Karl Lagerfield and loved by many, the Chanel Boy is the ultimate designer handbag to add to your collection. Introduced just a decade ago in 2011, the Chanel Boy bag is a prominent, best-selling member of the fashion house’s handbag lineup every season.

Gabrielle Chanel’s longtime love, ‘Boy’ Capel is the inspiration behind the name. Designed by Lagerfeld, the bag has a more masculine, utilitarian vibe. When it debuted in the Fall/Winter Collection Lagerfeld described how “Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact, it is the very spirit of Chanel,” that inspired the bag’s creation.

Made with grained calfskin and gold tone metal hardware, the Small Boy Chanel Bag is the perfect going out handbag. Pair with gold accessories and your favourite pair of strappy heels and you have a perfect night out outfit.
