Chanel makes a last­ing im­pres­sion with its latest Boy.Friend watch that is just as rav­ish­ing as it is ver­sa­tile. By Amy Yas­mine.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - THE JEWELS -

We’ve all been there be­fore. Steal­ing our boyfriend’s jeans, T-shirts … and some­times, even their watches. But what’s not to like about that whole over­sized look? Af­ter all, it’s that non­cha­lant Left Bank Parisian-cool vibe that made us fall in love with style stars such as Caro­line de Mai­gret and Lou Doil­lon. But here’s another crush to add to our list. By mar­ry­ing the fem­i­nine with the mas­cu­line, Chanel presents the Boy.Friend watch — a time­piece that calls upon the mod­ern el­e­gance and clas­sic sil­hou­ettes of the French mai­son. A trib­ute to the iconic N°5 bot­tle and the Place VendÔme, the time­piece echoes the em­blem­atic Pre­mière watch through its re­fined de­sign, strong lines, and sig­na­ture shape.

Rein­vented with Coco Chanel’s pen­chant for menswear in mind, the mas­cu­line el­e­ments echo through the time­piece’s sleek oc­tag­o­nal de­sign, fur­ther ac­cen­tu­ated by an 18-karat beige or white gold case and a lux­u­ri­ous semi-matt Mis­sis­sip­pi­en­sis al­li­ga­tor strap. Quite like that time­piece you’ve been eye­ing on your boyfriend’s night­stand (we know what you’ve been think­ing). But we don’t blame you. There’s some­thing quite al­lur­ing about a ca­sual sense of care­less­ness, but not in a scruff y way. It’s the im­agery of a crisp white shirt, over­sized jeans, and a hand­some watch that some­how pulls you in, al­beit in the sim­plest and most sub­tle of ways.

Here’s a boyfriend you wouldn’t be hes­i­tant to in­tro­duce to your par­ents.
