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