How I love the Boy Chanel Collection, let me count the ways…

Seriously, you guys. I’ve always admired the Chanel aesthetic but have never felt the need to acquire one of the brand’s bags; I was simply content to appreciate the look on other women. Until the Boy Chanel bags made their debut, at least. Ever since that fateful runway shoes when Chanel took its well-known flap shape and turned it both a little bit more modern and a tad more industrial, I’ve been hooked.

I finally got the chance to fondle some of the Spring 2012 line in person over the weekend, and I was not disappointed. In fact, I put my name down for one of the stellar Fall 2012 Boy runway bags, but until that shows up in August, I’ll be enjoying the images of the spring bags that I’ve assembled after the jump. Whether you’re a Boy convert or you’re still on the fence, check out the bags after the jump – they’re too good to miss.

    Nice. I love the sparkly/crackly look on some of them.

  • Alexandra Davidoff

    I’m not normally a fan of Chanel (I have to admit, Karl’s persona puts me off) but the pink one with the contrasting strap detail is quite pretty. 

  • Marie Martell

    I don’t usually like pink, but the pink bags are very very pretty!

  • gpc

    I like the looks of them, but after seeing IRL, I was very disappointed with the quality and they are way over-priced.  Not even lined in leather – the interior was a cheap canvas, in my opinion. I’ll stick with my lambskin maxi flap…

  • Sandra Rowley

    I am going to pass…I want to carry my wallet, cosmetic case, sunglasses, etc…non of which will fit into this bag.

  • Stacy Popham Fitting

    I may of just found a reason to like Chanel for the very first time.  These ARE NOT my grandmother’s bags. (I’m ignoring the two quilted bags – lol).   I believe I will be buying myself one as well.  My husband will be sooo thrilled to hear this news.  Thank you Amanda! :)

  • monpetitsecret

  • Rashida

    I prefer the look of the classic bags better… but they are nice…

  • Jane Lister-Korwan Doherty

    I couldn’t agree with you more.  I was content to look at Chanel bag’s from afar but the new boy bags are gorgeous.  I want them all especially the pink ones with the crackled leather.  Wow simply gorgeous.  Of course I will never be able to afford one, but if I could you bet I would buy one the boy bags.

    via this is so cute. I am still trying to find out who the author of this blog is

    • Margie

       Wait does that pig have on the Chanel boy flap? that is just too cute! Out of all of the bags the pink one is somewhat nice. However, I am noticing that these Chanel bags have been a tad bit lack luster.

  • Sil G

    i don’t like quilt anything, except for Chanel
    and the boy chanel would definitely be my pick if i could afford one of these bags. are they as ridiculously expensive as i think they are?

  • Labels of Lust
