From tomorrow September 1, the Boy Chanel bag will be available in Chanel boutiques worldwide. By, London-based illustrator Ellie Tzoni. Inspired by a cartridge bag that was originally made for hunters and was carried by the fashion visionary herself, this Object of Desire is distinctly androgynous. As Karl Lagerfeld explains, “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 an understatedly chic design, the Boy Bag is characteristically Chanel: coming in clean lines, with a rectangular flap and overstitched graphic bands of mattressing, the large chain of round links are made out of metal or burnished ruthenium. Showing a beautiful attention to detail the six letters of the legendary Chanel name appear in subtle relief on the top of the glazed calfskin bag, whilst a double C forms in the centre circle of the bag’s clasp.
