    This bag is part of the Boy Chanel Collection, originally released in 2011. This is a new and fresh look for Chanel. The boy bag's shape in supposedly inspired by a hunter's cartridge bag. Karl Lagerfeld is quoted referring to the original boyish spirit of Chanel herself. He makes a reference to the fact that Chanel used men's clothing to make women's dresses and had a boyish attitude. Lagerfeld says that she got it from the love of her life, Boy Capel, alluding to the reason for the bag's name, Boy Chanel. This is a very special and sought after bag. The exterior is dark green velvet with diamond stitching and matching leather accents. This bag features antiqued silver hardware and a lego style CC pushlock closure add to the modern feel of the bag. The strap is also antiqued silver chain and dark green leather. The interior is gray canvas with one slip pocket.

    This bag is in Excellent Condition. There is very light wear to the base corners and light stray scuffing to the reverse side of the flap top. This bag comes with a Chanel dustbag, authenticity card, care card, and original Chanel tag.
