Chanel Boyfriend Black Dial Steel Watch Collection

Jewelry & Watches

There aren’t many real reasons in today’s world one would actually wear a watch, I mean, even for me, my iPhone is my immediate go-to if I need to check on the time whenever I’m not wearing a timepiece on my wrist. But strangely (and I tried this a couple of times) when there’s a watch on me, I would inadvertently glance at my wrist if I need to check on what time it is. In other words, it’s instinctive, like my brain is pre-conditioned to do it almost naturally.

Maybe I’m old-school that way (ok, ok, just old), but I would think most of you out there would agree with me (and be doing the same thing most of the time). And if that’s truly so, I’m also pretty sure most of you would agree that what we wear on the wrist is important too, a watch that’s at the very least a) aesthetically-pleasing, b) tells time accurately and of course c) must have a backstory that we all can relate to.

Which brings me to Chanel Horlogerie‘s new timepiece offering, the Boyfriend. The watch itself isn’t new, but for 2016 it’s offered for the first time in steel. Yes, the bezel is all steel, a material that’s not only hardwearing but extremely sleek as well. Shaped like an octagon, it’s also an iconic shape that’s familiar to fans of Chanel, a masculine take on the Première watch, the stopper on the fragrance No.5 and a tribute to the layout of Place Vendôme in Paris.

A beautifully elegant timepiece, this particular incarnation of Chanel’s Boyfriend is also perfect for the independent woman of today, and one who appreciates its strong lines, refined design and of course, that signature shape. Available in two variations: one’s simply in steel (SGD6150) while the other comes bejewelled with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds (price on application). Guaranteed to give you that extra spring in your step, you can skip on down to Chanel’s Fine Jewellery & Watches boutique at Ngee Ann City for a closer look at your potential new Boyfriend.

CHANEL MULTICOLOR TWEED FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Multicolor-Tweed-Flap-Bag

Just when you thought the tweed flap bag couldn’t get any better and more gorgeous, suddenly Chanel released it in a multicolor design. Stylish, functional and up-to-date, the Multicolor Tweed Flap Bag is everything you might wish for in a flap bag. And why is that? Instead of seeing the usual classic flap bag that Chanel is known for, this one comes in a material made of tweed.

And the multicolor effect of dark blue, red and white just makes it more captivating in our eyes. What about the black chain? Oh, we totally fell in love with it because it’s unlike the other signature Chanel chains. The CC logo also completed the look of this multicolor tweed flap bag thus giving it the opulence and elegance for which Chanel bags stand for.

CHANEL PAGODA QUILTED FLAP BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Quilted-CC-Plated-Flap-Bag

We have plenty of surprises for you in 2016, but let’s start from the beginning, shall we? Before we start, allow us to remind you of something, something beautiful obvious. For the Cruise 2016 Collection, Chanel released the Squared Suede Flap Bag in mini squared, mini rectangular and medium size.

READ: Chanel Cruise 2016 Classic and Boy Bag Collection

Now what is very unusual about these bags is the new front clasp. The clasp is like this: squared, in gold with two studs on both sides and an elegant CC logo in the center. Let’s take a look at it:

Chanel-CC-Squared-Plated-Flap-Bag

The bags they’ve introduced however, are made from Suede Calfskin and Lambskin. But the bag really feels like suede, so you need to love it or leave it. If you have always bought in full-leather, then it’s not an option for you.

However, we have found something remarkable and we’re sure it’s from the Cruise 2016 Collection, so you still have enough time to run to the store and demand this bag. It’s a brand-new flap bag with the same new clasp, but not in suede, in fact it is full-leather.

Here are more surprises; it’s quilted just like the Classic Flap Bag that you love, it’s made with interwoven chain and it will make fall in love over and over again. We’re talking about the red Quilted Flap Bag in the center.

Take a look at the clasp; it’s the exact same bag. Now, we do not know the style code, nor the prices. The size should be medium and should be the same as the one in Suede. For more information, check the Chanel boutique.

Bag Battles: The Chanel Classic Flap Bag vs. The Chanel Boy Bag

Other Brands

Few brands are as deeply tied to a particular bag structure as Chanel. The legendary Coco Chanel made shoulder bags acceptably chic for upper-crust ladies over half a century ago, and the brand has been closely tied to chain straps, quilted leather and flap closures ever since. A few years ago, the Chanel Boy Bag was introduced to advance the legacy that the 2.55 Flap Bag started and the Classic Flap Bag continued.

Although the Boy Bag is a newcomer compared to the Classic Flap, it’s become so popular with customers that we have no doubt it will eventually enter into the pantheon of Chanel classics. It has the most important elements of Chanel’s signature handbag style (the aforementioned chain strap, quilted texture and flap structure), but assembled in a way that’s less delicate and formal than the flap bags that came before it. If you ever felt like the Classic Flap was too fancy or grown-up for your everyday life, the Boy Bag is a more casual, modern alternative.

On the other hand, the Boy Bag doesn’t have quite as much going for it, structure-wise. Its interior is just a single compartment lined in woven fabric, while the Classic Flap’s is lined in sumptuous burgundy leather and features several pockets and a hidden compartment for love letters. (I’m not joking–check out my roundup of fun facts about Chanel’s flap bags for more trivia.) I’ve held both, and the Classic Flap Bag just feels more luxurious to me, even though the Boy Bag is much more in line with my personal style.

The Boy Bag is less expensive than the Classic Flap, but not drastically so–the small Boy is $4,300, while the small Classic Flap is $4,900. With all those things in mind, whether I would pick the Boy or the Classic Flap comes down to which version of each I’m considering. In a hypothetical world where I’m choosing between my ideals of both, I’d probably go with a Classic Flap, but it’s a narrow win.

Now we want to hear what you think–tell us which Chanel icon you prefer in the comments!

Other Brands

Chanel-Boy-Stingray-Flap-Bag-gold

Hello there, please meet the Chanel Boy Stringray Flap Bag from the Pre-Fall 2014 Collection, also known as the Métiers D’art Paris Dallas Collection.
Oh gosh, what a beautiful ‘new’ boy bag!
Nope, it’s not a new style.
You see, Chanel dropped the Boy Stingray Flap Bag in the Fall 2012 Collection, which is exactly two years ago. Then, we haven’t heard much about it. Not until today, it seems like CHANEL is bringing this classic ‘fancy’ style back to its store. But then, in a fresh new color.Chanel-Boy-Stingray-Flap-Bag-gold-2
The Chanel Boy Stingray Flap Bag in the Fall 2012 Collection was not in gold, it was embellished in silver with ruthenium hardware. But exclusively for the Pre-Fall 2014 Collection, Chanel redo the style and painted it in vintage gold, which is basically – more timeless and more love.
This boy bag is impressive and certainly a statement-maker. Carrying this beauty, in no matter what style, will leave a permanent mark to those who see you. It’s shining and the gold is embellished from the back to the front, even the hardware is in gold, it’s the ultimate luxury bag if you ask me.
The fashionista that bought this bag, wore it together with a long black evening dress, and she enriched her arms with golden accessories including this beautiful watch. If you love the color gold, then this is a must have for your wardrobe.
Surprisingly, the Chanel Boy Stingray Flap Bag in the Fall 2012 Collection was bit more expensive, it retailed for $5,100 USD. But this one is a bit cheaper, here are the details:
Chanel Boy Stingray Flap Bag
Price: $4,800 USD
Colors: Black and in silver hardware or gold in vintage gold hardware.
