The rumours are true, model Alice Dellal (known for her punky part-shaven hairstyle) is the new face of Chanel’s Boy handbag collection.
The super-brand told WWD: “[Karl Lagerfeld] had a crush on this unique, charismatic young lady, who is both a model and musician, during a photo shoot several months ago. This previously unforeseen alliance finally became self-evident. Alice Dellal represents the perfect incarnation of all that is unique about the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives [to be] far from conformist notions of femininity.” So there you have it.
You might have seen Dellal modelling for Mango and Agent Provocateur but this is definitely the biggest brand yet.
Oh and have you seen the Boy bag? J’adore!
