The Ultimate Bag Guide: The Chanel Boy Bag

Categories:Other Brands

It would usually be hyperbolic to call a handbag an “instant classic,” but that’s exactly what the Chanel Boy Bag seems like. Since its Spring 2012 debut, the Boy has become as sought-after as the brand’s other famous flaps, mostly by using a similar formula to the originals: versatile flap shoulder bag structure + distinctive lock = handbag magic.

The Chanel Boy Bag debuted at exactly the right time; young shoppers had taken an interest in the brand, but most of its signature bags skewed toward older shoppers with more formal wardrobes and personal styles. The Boy, with its more casual feel and array of seasonal variations, was the perfect design to bridge the gap while staying true to numerous Chanel signatures. The bag may only be in its fourth year of existence, but it feels like it’s been part of the handbag landscape forever.

Oh, and another fun fact before we dive in to the sizes, prices and comparisons: the Boy was named after Boy Capel, the love of Coco Chanel’s life.

Chanel Velvet Boy Quilted Flap Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Velvet-Flap-Bag

If you took a few minutes to read our made-with-love Chanel Leather Guide (I assume you already have), then you will know that generally, handbags made from Velvet are the lowest priced. It’s an opportunity to catch a CC designer bag and lock it up in your wardrobe.

For the Fall Winter 2014 Collection (Oeps I mean Pre-Collection), Chanel has released the Chanel Boy Quilted Velvet Flap Bag. Just for your information, the Chanel Boy Quilted Flap Bag in leathers like calfskin is currently priced at $4,200 USD. While the Velvet version is retailing for $3,700 USD. It’s just slightly cheaper, I am not sure whether the extra 500 USD saving is worth it.

However, the design is entirely different and of course the feel. The Boy Quilted Flap Bag in Velvet feels much softer (not the lambskin soft of course) and the boy in calfskin feels much more durable. They say its not easy to clean ‘Velvet’, you can read more about this material at our Chanel Leather Guide.

Besides the material used, the look is exactly the same – you get the iconic Boy CC logo on the front, the big strong shoulder chain strap and its entirely quilted. I think the Velvet version is great to have, if you already own one in leather.

Chanel Medium Boy Velvet Flap Bag is measured 5.7’ x 10’ x 3.5’ inches.

Chanel Boy Wallet On Chain in Grained Calfskin

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Boy-Wallet-On-Chain-Bag

The most popular question I get about the Chanel Boy Wallet on Chain is: ‘Does it come in Caviar?’
And I can fully understand why this question is being asked so frequently, many Chanel users are used to Caviar, they know how impeccable this leather is – its strong and heavier than the lambskin, to damage such leather, you need to be very abusive. So imagine the Boy WOC in caviar, how safe will my investment be?
But calfskin is also one of my favorite leather; at least it’s much better than lambskin, if maintenance and care is your concern of course. Lambskin has its own benefits; I mean its feel very luxurious.
This Boy WOC style is from the permanent edition, unlike the Chanel WOC Paris Dallas that has been released a few months ago. It features a long metal chain and the Boy CC Closure in golden hardware. I love how the color blue melts together with gold, the black is usually together with silver hardware. If you love gold, then this is your opportunity.
Calfskin is calfskin, what you are going to love, are the grains. You see, this Boy WOC is grained, it will feel amazing if you touch it with your hands.

Chanel Boy Wallet on Chain in Grained Calfskin
Style code: A80287
Size: 4.8’ x 7.5’ x 1.7’
Price: $2,475 USD, €1600 euro’s or $3,000 SGD.
