I was reading the Sunday Times this morning when I saw an article that made me chuckle. Chanel is celebrating its sporting heritage by launching a new, limited edition, bicycle. It comes in a stylish black, has eight gears, a chain protector with their logo splashed across it, and is thoughtfully fitted with mudguards to keep your Jimmy Choos dry. It also comes complete with leather handbags, sorry panniers, fixed to the rear rack, for those epic expeditions to Brown Thomas.
Although, at around nine grand a pop I couldn’t imagine anyone leaving it unattended for long. Yes, nine grand for a granny bike!
If its the black colour scheme that’s putting you off don’t worry, Gucci also do a limited edition bike(see below) in silver and tope.
Both are in shops from December and are only available in limited numbers , so hurry to avoid disappointment.
