The history of Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel engaged in production of World’s most outrageous and high-priced sporting goods dates back to ages. Having witnessed the Chanel snowboard with trompe l’oeil “quilting” followed by £1,235 Chanel skis utilized by Victoria Beckham in 2004. And the latest falling in number is Chanel bicycle, a pink Chanel tennis racket fixed with tennis balls. And updating its profile today stands $20,000 fly fishing rod (thanks to Lagerfeld for keeping the forte up) inviting the richie-rich daddy. The Chanel rod is scrupulously tied with monochrome Chanel flies and renowned “double C” logo on its gossamer wings. The flying rod comes packed in a quilted black leather box.
P.S.: The seemingly budding relation of Chanel with the sport of fly fishing is ages old as the fashion house’s founder, Coco Chanel, was a devoted angler who whet her skills while dating the Duke of Westminster in the 20s.
