Officially, Chanel doesn’t make anything for the boys, well save for some RTW pieces that have to be specially ordered, or the tiniest of necktie selections that doesn’t really count. But that hasn’t stopped the more fashion-forward of men amongst us to buy what we have deemed fit for our own use, from the shoes (remember those espadrilles and runway sneakers that were all the rage?) to zip clutches and even selected wallets, especially the long zipped ones.
Well, here’s something else from Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2016 collection that I think both the boys (and the girls) can love, the Large Boy Chanel Flap Bag, which is not exactly as the name describes. More a tote bag than anything else, this roomy grained calfskin leather beauty measures a good 33 cm across by 30 cm, with extra long handles that will allow one to carry it over the shoulders with ease. Great for work (can you imagine this as a briefcase instead?), it also helps that it comes in Black with gorgeous gunmetal hardware, both on part of the handles and on the now-iconic Boy Chanel crest. Its price? Well, SGD5700 if you want to be exact, but with Christmas just around the corner, why not, right?
