Are you sick and tired of the classic flap? It's everywhere now and it's becoming somewhat mainstream if you want to call it that way. Anyway I'm so excited for this 'Boy'. Very excited. According to Telegraph, Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld explains: "Chanel used men's underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact, it is the very spirit of Chanel. She got it from Boy Capel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel."
It's revolutionary. I mean not everyone is ready and wanting to spend so much on less-'typical' or contemporary brands or whatever non-LV, Gucci and Prada, and by that I'm also referring to you girls that still ask for mommy to sponsor you bags. Generally she'll go, 'You can get a Louis Vuitton'. What I'm trying to say is that she might not accept Proenza Schouler or Philip Lim. But this Boy is still Chanel, of course with a more androgynous vibe. That thing the PS1 has. This, I believe, is a brilliant option for something edgier, "far removed from the conventional feminine clichés" for the daring fashion trend-setters and self-proclaimed Chanel girls out there. It's really cool! You know you want to have it before everyone else does.
Are you ready to save up for this? Anyway they're launching it in September so you have more or less two months to starve.
