A casual, easy-going finish to a classic Chanel bag.

Blue denim BOY CHANEL bag

For Spring Summer 2013, Karl Lagerfeld kept things carefree and elegant at Chanel, and that attitude has filtered down into the accessories. Take a look at the Denim Boy bag, an updated version of a shape we first saw a few seasons back; boxy and androgynous, it was inspired by a cartridge bag carried by Coco Chanel herself and now sees a contemporary denim finish applied.

The shoulder bag features Chanel’s signature quilting in contrasting white stitching on the fold-over front flap and back, finished off with a thick trim and a heavy-duty gunmetal double C clasp. The adjustable chain strap flashes cobalt blue leather inserts and is completely detachable, allowing you to carry the bag as a clutch, which is totally possible given the size of the bag; a modest 25cm long by 14cm high.

Inside it’s lined in familiar burgundy with a hidden zip-pocket and a small compartment helping to keep everything in its right place. The reverse of the front-flap pops in the same cobalt as the strap, adding to the fact that this is an eye-catching bag however you look at it. This is quite possibly as casual as a Chanel handbag can get; wear it for a day out shopping or a laid-back rooftop drink.
