Here’s Beyonce, Queen of the Universe, shopping for art (and showing off those headline-making new hipster bangs) in the Mayfair section of London with hubby Jay-Z. Bey’s bag is, of course, a Chanel Boy Bag, which makes her yet another celeb VIP in Club Chanel Boy Bag.

For a moment, I thought about pairing this gallery of Chanel Spring 2015 runway bags with only the following text: “Below, you will find a series of photos of Chanel bags that you will not like. Don’t shoot the messenger.” Part of me still thinks that might suffice.
Chanel’s Fall 2014 show, set in an ultra-luxury supermarket constructed inside the Grand Palais in Paris, was perhaps the biggest spectacle ever for a brand that loves a spectacle. With bags styled like packaged steaks inside of stuff chain grocery baskets, it was easy to get lost in the absurdist tableau and miss the fact that, among the novelty, there were plenty of wearable, covetable bags and accessories to be found.
Here’s country music starlet Kacey Musgraves, signing autographs outside BBC Radio in London. Kacey is wearing a Chanel Boy Bag from the Dallas-inspired 2014 Metiers d’Art collection, which is pretty much a perfect choice for a young, successful country star; hand-tooled leather is particularly popular with the country-western set.
The Chanel Boy Bag continues to sell briskly and inspire lust in consumers all over the world, and in response to the demand, Chanel has produced the bag in a wide variety of colors, sizes and materials. You immediately get classic Chanel vibes when you see the Boy Bag, but it’s more casual and approachable than some of the brand’s more traditional offerings.
Bella Thorne was recently spotted checking in at the Empire Hotel in NYC (which is right across from Lincoln Center) and carrying a Chanel Graffiti Backpack. Although this backpack is supposedly a seasonal runway piece, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if Chanel kept making and selling them in some form for a few more seasons.
