Chanel Boy Bag Size Guide

Categories:Other Brands

Ever since the debut of Chanel's Le Boy bag in Spring 2012, the bag has been an instant classic. To meet high demand, Chanel has released boy flaps in many different leathers, fabrics, colors, and sizes. The most common sizes include small, old medium, new medium and large. And, the most difficult decision when purchasing your first Chanel boy bag is what size to get!

How Much Will It Hold?

The first thing to consider when shopping for a classic boy bag is how much you'll need the bag to carry.

Small- 7.9 x 4.7 x 3.1 inches
This petite beauty will support all the essentials like a compact wallet, cellphone, keys and maybe a couple small pieces of makeup. In size, it is very similar to the classic mini bag.

Old Medium- 9.8 x 5.9 x 3.5 inches
This stunning size seems to look classic on everyone. It can hold a long wallet, cellphone, keys, charger, small tablet and several cosmetic pieces.

New Medium- 11 x 7 x 3.5 inches
The new medium can hold quite a lot and will meet most people's requirements for an everyday bag. An example of what can be contained in the new medium include: long wallet, small tablet, cellphone, keys, chargers, sunglasses, notebook, and several cosmetic pieces.

Large- 11.8 x 8.3 x 3.9 inches
The large boy is proportionally similar to the classic jumbo. For those who treat their bags like portable toolboxes, this is a great bag, because it can carry quite a bit! An example of what might be inside a large boy include: long wallet, lotions, sunglasses, notebook, small snacks, small umbrella, cellphone, keys, chargers, and many pieces of makeup.

Oh boy, oh boy, here we go again.

When Niala Conte made the picture of this brand-new Chanel Boy Bag, do you know what her initial reaction was? She said: ‘this is totally out of control’, and we know exactly what she was thinking – this is a jaw-dropping gorgeous studded boy bag.

Freshly stitched and available in store right now, from the latest Chanel Paris Dallas 2014 Collection, we know there was something more delicious than cowboy-inspired accessories and fringes. So do you want to know his true name? It’s called the Chanel Boy Studded Bag.

An irresistible piece, even if you’re not the rock-and-roll type. It has got the image of a bad-ass rock style look, perfect if you need to enhance your daring and courageous personality, show the world that you got a flawless taste in fashion and also an unstoppable feminine attitude.

Refined with vintage elements, it looks like used. And just like any Boy Bag, it comes with a strong and long ‘aged’ boy chain with a leather strap. The Boy CC signature on the front quilted in the center and finished with structured studs laying perfectly in line on the trimming.

We said it and we are going to say it again: ‘The Paris Dallas Boy Bag Collection is not a disappointment, it has more amazing bags than we’ve expected’. Check our previous post if you crave for more boys at Chanel Paris Dallas Boy Bag Collection.

Made from washed-out faded calfskin, which is strong and durable. The Chanel Boy Studded Bag is painted in black and white (exactly what you see on the pictures). The medium size is measured 6’ x 9.8’ x 3’ inches.

Okay now, tell me how you like =).

CHANEL METALLIZED CC BOY FLAP BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Hologram-CC-Boy-Flap-Bag

Here’s another boy from the Paris Dallas 2016 Collection.

I have already lost count of how many Boy Bags I’ve screened in my life. Each season Chanel drops another limited edition ‘Boy’ in new styles, colors and design. Like a few days ago, when we extensively talked about the new Chanel Boy Studded Bag, it was embellished with large vintage studs on the edges and totally-out-of-control beautiful.

And because some bags are not published on Chanel’s official website, you need to visit their physical store and ask. It’s like a surprise box, you never know what inside until you open it.

But perhaps that is why we love Chanel so much – we love surprises and they give us surprises, like ‘Surprise, price increase!’

The Chanel Metallized CC Boy Flap is purposely created to celebrate the love between Texas Dallas and Chanel Paris. That’s why they crafted a star and an oversized CC logo on the front. The bag is entirely metalized and adorned with strass in the center. The tiny studded pieces together, they ‘bling’ like a Swarovski stones. And of course, the can’t-miss Boy signature logo on the front to finalize the design.

If you don’t have a boy yet, you should head over to the ‘permanent collection’. But if you desire for something unique and different, this bag is in limited edition, only available for this season, therefore once you buy it and patiently wait for a year or so, you will be one of the few to own such gorgeous.

You can find the latest prices of the Boy Collection and the sizes at Chanel Bags Prices.

CHANEL VELVET BOY FLAP BAG FOR FALL WINTER COLLECTION

Chanel-Velvet-Boy-Flap-Bag

Okay one more time.

By now, you must already know that the CHANEL Fall Winter Collection is all about ‘Velvet’. And of course, we’ve mixed opinion about the materials, but oh gosh, how gorgeous the Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bags in Velvet are.

READ: Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag in Velvet

One of our members said: ‘When I wake up tomorrow, this bag will be in my wardrobe’. How I wish that to be true for myself.

But anyways, we’ve also written an extensive review about he Chanel Wallet on Chain in Velvet. And you know what? They are cheaper than in leather, obvious?

READ: Chanel Wallet on Chain in Velvet

And of course, we can’t live without the Chanel Classic Flap Bags, and now also in Velvet. By the way, these handbags are seasonal and will be removed from the catalogues when the season is over.

Now, one more Velvet to go before we dive into the Cruise Collection. Well, it’s not a real secret, but the Chanel Boy Flap Bags are also covered in Velvet for the Fall Winter Collection. And naturally, these handbags are cheaper than in leather. If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to purchase, perhaps now it’s the time.

There is a positive and negative thing about Velvet. Positive is that the colors pops out, the bag is as bright as the lights and that makes it stand out. (Besides that the price is also cheaper of course), then the negative thing is that the material is not as durable as leather (in our opinion). But then again, it also depends on how you use the bag, the more abuse, the quicker you can say goodbye to it.

The purpose of this post is to show you more different colors, check them out.

CHANEL BOY FLAP BAG MEDIUM PLUS

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Boy-Flap-Bag-Medium-Plus

You might have heard the news already, but a new Chanel Boy Flap Bag in medium size has been released. We’ve been informed about this for some time, but wanted to learn more before dropping a review.

Listen:

Monica: ‘Yes, the boy bag is in old medium size, the new medium they named it the medium plus’.

So, please meet Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium Plus.

And yes, they did it again. Some time ago, Chanel discontinued the Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag in single flap and then introduced the Jumbo in double flap. Of course, the new Jumbo is bigger and heavier. After that (in 2009), the Maxi Classic Flap Bag was born.

Is big and bigger the new trend?

Let’s compare the sizes first:

Chanel-Boy-Flap-Bag-Sizes-2

Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium
Size: 5.7’ x 9.8’ x 3.5’
Price: $4,700 USD

Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium Plus
Size: 7.1’ x 11’ x 3.5’
Price: $5,200 USD

As you can see, the Medium Plus is larger; I mean it’s really much bigger. Not only that, it comes with more interior pockets like a zip pocket and open pocket. And because of these extra features, the Chanel Boy Medium Plus Flap Bag is also heavier. Naturally, it also comes with a higher price tag, it’s $500 USD more expensive than the normal size.

Now, do you want to know what’s more interesting?

Let’s do another comparison. Let’s put the Medium next to the Medium Plus and add the Chanel Boy Large Flap Bag (In Metallic Calfskin for the Fall Winter 2014 Collection) too.

Chanel-Boy-Flap-Bag-Sizes

A real surprise huh? The Medium Plus is almost similar to the Large size. According to the dimension, it is, in some way, a bit bigger.

Let’s put the dimension together:
Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium: 5.7’ x 9.8’ x 3.5’
Chanel Boy Flap Bag Medium Plus: 7.1’ x 11’ x 3.5’
Chanel Boy Flap Bag Large Size: 6.5’ x 11’ x 3.3’

So which one would you choose? The normal ‘Medium Size’ or the ‘Medium Plus Size?’. Here are two opinions:

Monica:’im 5’0 so i prefer old medium’.

Winni: ‘Cz of my height n size, I Can’t carry large size bag. So last year when I decide to buy le boy, I had tried small and old medium. Small size suit me more while old medium only longer than small from mirror view. It’s the length of the bag kinda not match with the height of the bag’.

When to choose the Chanel Boy Medium Plus Flap Bag?
First, it’s a personal choice. If you love larger handbags, then why not? Then personal choice again, if you are the type of person that loves to store a lot of essentials, then the Medium Plus is perfect for you. Then it’s your height, if you are not that tall, like 5’0 or so (just like what Monica says), then bigger bags might not look good on you. Then you should just go for the medium size.

Now, a few more additional information before we let you digest the new information:

Kiki: ‘Help! My friend went to Germany Chanel store they said that the Boy bag in Black color has discontinued?! Is that true? Im desperate for a black boy bag, she’s going to France tomorrow, hope she can find something. Is that true that they discontinued?’

Kiki: ‘It’s the old medium Quilted Boy bag in black, my friend went to Paris she get the same respond. They say it seasonal and it has discontinued now they only have bright colors’.

And so, what do you think? Let us know =).
