For the longest time, the Boy Chanel came in a boxy format with a rigid structure and defined corners that made it stand out from amongst the other bags at Chanel. Its boyish allure was further enhanced with its thick gourmette chain and lego-inspired clasp, making this the standard style for all sizes (from mini to large) under the Boy Chanel range.
Part of the upcoming #CHANELMetiersdArt collection, it is now curves galore for the new Small Boy Chanel Messenger Bag, with a curved base that makes it a first for this icon. Looking like the lovechild of the Coco Curve and Boy Chanel, she has all the curves of the former but the finishes of the latter.
The diamond quilted motif is featured prominently across both versions in grained calfskin leather and velvet, and the CC logo on the chunky gold-tone clasp remains as well. The length of the gourmette chain also keeps the bag versatile, perfect for wearing it long across the body or looping it twice for a casual over-the-shoulder format.
The small size measures 18 cm wide and 12.5 cm high, and it will come in colours like dark grey for grained calfskin (SGD7290), as well as beige and navy for the velvet ones (SGD6970).
Get ready to embrace the sensual curves on this Small Boy Chanel Messenger Bag, but would it be the one in grained calfskin or a lush velvet for you?
