I’m not a Chanel person. I write about Chanel Replica a lot because a lot of handbag people are Chanel people, and because I respect the brand’s storied history in the market and the staggering breadth of its current output, but in my personal taste, the brand’s bags often skew too traditionally feminine to feel natural in my wardrobe.
That changed significantly when the brand debuted the Chanel Le Boy Bag a few years ago—it felt a little tougher and more modern than the Chanel’s other flap bags, with harder corners and a bolder chain. I wanted one immediately, and even put my name on a wait list for an amethyst velvet version at one of New York’s Chanel boutiques.
I never pulled the trigger, though—sometimes life gets in the way of bag-acquiring—and eventually, my wishlist moved elsewhere. That was years ago, but now, I find myself drawn to the Chanel Replica Handbags all over again because of the strength of the Le Boy Bags included in Chanel’s spring pre-collection and collection. They’re just so…pretty. And despite the fact that I’m not a person who commonly values traditional notions of feminine beauty in her wardrobe, I’m having a hard time resisting them.
