    BOY CHANEL: THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME

    “Chanel had this attitude, it's the very spirit of Chanel. She'd picked it up from Boy Capel, the great love of her life... Indeed, the bag's called Boy Chanel”, explains Karl Lagerfeld.

    THE STORY OF THE ICONIC HANDBAG

    THE STORY OF THE ICONIC HANDBAG

    Initiator of a new, liberating and modern gesture, Gabrielle Chanel created a bag that she needed herself, an accessory which freed up the hands: the iconic bag of the House is born.
    Even today, the classic design still follows the first partitions dictated by Gabrielle: a chain interwoven with leather ribbon that allows to carry it on the shoulder, quilting inspired by the equestrian universe that Gabrielle Chanel loved so much, garnet leather that reminds one of the color of the uniform which Gabrielle had to wear at the Aubazine orphanage, and the regular twist clasp called the "Mademoiselle".
    Every season, Karl Lagerfeld metamorphoses the iconic bag: different materials, clasps transformed into jewels and chevron quilting enriches the legendary Chanel bag family. The iconic bag is part of an heritage that is transmitted from mother to daughter. As Chanel used to say: "Fashion becomes unfashionable, style never".
