I’m normally a fan of all the products of Karl Lagerfeld’s acute insanity, but I’m not sure how I feel about My New Friend “Boy”, the new short film (read: commercial) that Lagerfeld directed, starring Alice Dellal (little sister of Charlotte Olympia designer Charlotte Dellal) and Chanel‘s new Boy Chanel bag line. Does Instagram have a new video app that I don’t know about?

I’m not sure that Dellal is much of an actress, and stomping around a mansion with a beautiful handbag just a little too far out of frame for it to be properly seen doesn’t do much to make me interested in the bag, even though I adore the Boy Chanel line. If Lagerfeld had dialed back the vintage filtering just a bit, I think the video (and its audience) would have benefited immensely, but I’ll reserve final judgment until the still shots emerge; Chanel’s have been beautiful recently. What say you? Take a look at the video above and sound off in the comments.

    They got a little too caught up in the “art” and forgot about the bag. Unless the point of this video wasn’t to showcase the bag, in which case I’m a bit puzzled. I shouldn’t really have to work that hard to see a bag I probably can’t afford anyway.

    The video is ok, the bag is ok.  The smallest bag that I ever carry is a Balenciaga City Bag, so I have no idea how so many of you carry around these tiny boxish bags.

    I don’t like the video (where is the product?). I don’t like the bag. I don’t like Della (her hair cut is out since… I don’t know when, she is really ugly I do not know why Lagerfeld wanted her…), this was, for me, a wrong choice.
