Chanel Boy

Designed by Karl Lagerfeld, this edgier Chanel Flap was inspired by cartridge bags used for hunting - embodying Coco Chanel's boyish attitude. 

About Chanel

Founded by Gabrielle Chanel at the beginning of the last century, CHANEL offers a broad range of high-end creations, including Ready-to-Wear, Leather Goods, Fashion Accessories, Eyewear, Fragrances, Makeup, Skincare, Jewelry and Watches. CHANEL is also renowned for its Haute Couture collections, presented twice yearly in Paris, and for having acquired a large number of specialized suppliers, collectively known as the Métiers d’Art. Chanel is dedicated to ultimate luxury and to the highest level of craftsmanship.

Leather, Skins, & Material

Like other Chanel bags, the Deauville is available in both Calfskin and Caviar Leather. However, materials such as Canvas, Denim and mixed fibres including Viscose, Lurex and Cotton are more typically more popular, and give off that beachy vibe. Other materials include Raffia - a natural fibre derived from palm leaves. 

History of the Boy

Launched in 2011 as part of Chanel's Fall/Winter collection, the Chanel Boy Bag pays homage to Boy Capel - the love of Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's life. 

Featuring a boxier silhouette, a channel-quilted border, a wider chain-link strap and a geometric squeeze-lock clasp, the Chanel Boy Bag puts a modern, utilitarian twist on the Chanel Classic Flap perfectly fusing elegant timelessness with contemporary boldness.
