Chanel to Launch New 'Boy Bag' Collection for A/W 2011

 For Autumn/Winter 2011, Karl Lagerfeld in launching a whole new collection of bags - the 'boy' bag. According to him, he took his inspiration from Coco Chanel who used to carry a similar style of bag. She also took much of her inspiration from men's clothes, even crafting some of her dresses from men's underwear. Karl commented on the new design range:

“Chanel used men’s underwear to make dresses; she had this boyish attitude, in fact it is the very spirit of Chanel. She got it from Boy Capel, the great love of her life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel.”

The bags come in a variety of neutral shades from black to grey, while the range has everything from totes, clutches and chain-strap shoulder bags. Ranging in price from  $2500 to $4300, this collection will hit Chanel stores in September - will this be the new 2.55 that everyone will be carrying? While it may have a similar vibe, it seems like a fresh update on the classic design, complete with the usual signature chain handles and lock-close.
