Description

Desired among the sleek and edgy Chanel lovers, the Chanel Boy Bag is characterized by its signature lego-brick lock, chunky chain strap and straight edges. From quilting to hardware, Chanel Boy is like the cool sister of Classic Flap Bag.

This Chanel Boy Medium Ecru Calfskin GHW features a full front flap with the Le Boy CC push lock closure and a gold tone chain link / ecru leather padded shoulder strap. With a 51cm single chain strap drop and a 30.5cm double strap drop, the Boy is comfortable to be carried both as a shoulder bag and as a crossbody bag.

The interior is lined in ecru leather with an open pocket on the rear wall. The Boy Bag fits all your daily essentials and beyond. Due to its bold, boxy silhouette, and a flap that folds over the entire front of the bag- the bag provides ample room.

The Chanel Boy Bag debuted in the Chanel Fall/Winter collection of 2011. Due to its ever increasing demand, Chanel Boy has cemented a place as a mainstay in Chanel bag collections. Created by Karl Lagerfeld, the iconic design owns its name to Gabrielle Chanel’s first love, Boy Capel. Arthur “Boy” Capel was an English polo player, Coco Chanel’s muse, and greatest love. Boy Capel championed Coco’s radical spirit, and supported her mission to push the boundaries of femininity and gender norms. Upon its release, Karl Lagerfeld said, “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.”

With such a versatile frame, the Chanel Boy has been crafted in a range of materials, from diverse leathers to luxurious textiles. Even the most distinguishable element of the Chanel Boy Bag, the lego-brick lock with a double CC center, has varied over the years. Evidently, the Boy Bag is constantly experimented with, solidifying it as a highly coveted piece that is simultaneously classic and avant-garde.

This Chanel Boy Medium Ecru Calfskin GHW bag is of Calfskin leather. Smooth, sleek and soft, Chanel Calfskin is made from calf hide. Used in Chanel’s iconic quilted designs, its small and delicate grains give it an elegant texture. Calfskin is very versatile, nicely balancing the soft, supple feel of Lambskin with the look of Caviar. Despite its smooth look and feel, Calfskin is quite durable- making it the everyday bag for fashionistas on-the-go. Calfskin is the perfect Chanel leather for those looking for both luxurious and long-lasting leather.

Resale prices for Chanel Boy Bags have increased at about the same rate as retail prices- making it a true “investment piece”.
