Hello My Lovelies;
Karl Lagerfeld is launching a new collection of exquisitely enticing bags for Autumn/Winter 2011, named the Boy Bag. Lagerfeld was inspired by Coco Chanel who used to carry a similar style of bag.
Lagerfeld commented on the new androgynous design range:
“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.”
The sleek bags come in a range of shades which are subdued yet still give a powerful presence; from intense black, deepest grey, lacklustre red to brilliant ivory. With crisp industrial hardware in silver or bronze, it gives off a very masculine charm, unlike the signature sleek feminine clasp we are so familiar with. It is produced in various styles, from totes, slide handle clutches to large chain-strap shoulder bags.
Its sheer simplicity and fineness has managed to strike an almost impossible balance between masculine and feminine delicacy, perfectly embodying the androgynous charm the designer, Coco Chanel was renowned for.
I have a feeling this new collection will reach the iconic status similar to that of the 2.55 very quickly!
Much love, Glam Girl x
