Iconic French fashion label Chanel is celebrating the launch of its
Spring-Summer pre-collection with the sale of a chic Chanel-branded boomerang.
Followers of high-fashion can now purchase the latest in vogue indigenous
hunting weapons for only $1,930 each.
The luxury haute couture brand describes the boomerangs as ‘black with wood
and resin’ and each have the distinctive Chanel symbol emblazoned in the middle.
Chanel also sells other sport-related paraphernalia for exorbitant prices
including tennis rackets for $2,200, beach rackets and balls for $4,860
and a pack of four tennis balls for $570.
The interesting choice for Chanel’s luxury sport collection has sparked
complaints from confused shoppers and the indigenous community who claim
it is cultural appropriation.
