First there was the Chanel snowboard with trompe l’oeil “quilting”; then $2,5000 Chanel skis. More recently the fashion house has produced a Chanel’s $12,000 bike, a pink Chanel tennis racket complete with tennis balls and a Chanel boomerang.
And now, here is the luxurious fly-fishing rod from the latest Chanel sports collection, priced at just under $20,000. It seems to be a Karl Lagerfeld’s personal tribute to Coco Chanel and her love of the relaxing sport !
For a mere Â£9,170 the ponciest angler on the planet can kit himself out with a Chanel rod and a set of meticulously tied, monochrome Chanel flies, complete with the famous “double C” logo on the gossamer wings, presented in a rather fetching, quilted black leather box.
