The handbags during the Chanel runway shows can be totally hit or miss – sometimes Uncle Karl equips his models with hardly any bags, sometimes they’re crazy-literal like spring’s sea shells, sometimes they’re just the same ol’ Chanel that we’re all used to. In the case of shows like Chanel Fall 2012, though, the bags get better and better as the show progresses and remind you why Chanel sells bags hand over fist in the first place. And if you’re a Boy Chanel fan, then boy, do I have a treat for you.

For Chanel, Fall 2012 is all about gemstones in their raw state. Perhaps predictably, that lead to lots of handbags in rich jewel tones, the best of which were the Boy Chanels finished in plush velvet. I’ve always been a fan of the Boy line, but after seeing the shape in vibrant purple and yellow, how much I’d like to make a Boy bag mine cannot be overstated. I need one, you guys. Maybe more than one.
