^Chanel do a wide variety of bizarre sports equipment, i find it really strange to be honest.
I feel like its taking away from the allure of the brand of Chanel, when you think fashion, luxury, Paris, Coco Chanel, exquisite, HC, high end... etc you can't fit in odd sports gear & other weird things in there
It's not really surprising really. Karl seems like he has pretty much used up his creative reservoirs and instead of selling the clothes, he is not stuck with selling the 'lifestyle'. Why do you think his shows are always themed with silly settings? There are exceptions of course, like the Bombay collection, which was truly a testimony of Chanel's creative legacy. But I generally miss Chanel pre- Fall 06, when it was just about fantastic clothes, drop dead gorgeous styling and Parisian sophistication.
