Alice Dellal is the Face of Chanel Boy Bags Again

Alice Dellal made her Chanel debut in the first Chanel Boy Bag ad campaign last spring and now Chanel has unveiled the second Chanel Boy Bag campaign starring Alice Dellal as the face of Boy Bag again.  The campaign features black and white images of Alice Dellal on horseback  – these photos are reminiscent of an image I’ve seen of Coco Chanel on horseback (with Boy Capel) and were probably inspired by that image (see below).  The campaign was photographed at La ferme de la Chapelle, Fontaine-Chaalis.

Boy Chanel: Chanel Boy Bag Spring-Summer 2012

Chanel Boy Bag Alice Dellal
I’ve been covering the behind-the-scenes making of the Chanel Boy Bag spring-summer 2012 campaign, and even saw a short film by Karl Lagerfeld (“My New Friend Boy”) and now we finally get to see the campaign images and collection. The Chanel Boy Bag spring-summer 2012 collection features Alice Dellal and was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.

I LOVE this campaign. I have to say that I wasn’t that excited about Alice Dellal being chosen as the face of the Boy Bag campaign but I think these images are stunning. Karl Lagerfeld has managed to balance Alice Dellal’s edgy look with a sexy femininity. I love the styling – the bows, pearls, fishnets, the bangles (I NEED) and of course the bags!  Chanel is really expanding the Boy Bag offering with different colors and textures. I love the addition of quilting and caviar leather to the center panel of the Boy Bag and it looks like more strap options and sizes are available now.  Chanel has developed a micro-site devoted to the Chanel Boy Bag and you can view the whole collection below.

Behind the Scenes Photos of the New Boy Bag Ad Campaign

The new Chanel Boy Bag ad campaign featuring Alice Dellal and shot by Karl Lagerfeld should be surfacing soon but until then we can get a sneak peek by checking out the behind-the-scenes images of the photo shoot.  You can see from the photos that the Chanel team did a great job of balancing Alice Dellal’s edgy look and giving it a feminine Chanel sheen.  It’s the best I’ve ever seen her look.  What do you think?

For more on what the ads will look like, also check out the mini film My New Friend Boy.
