Lets Get Physical

Spring is coming, and with it so are new season resolutions of getting fit in time for summer. While the idea of getting fit might ring the alarm bells that sound just before an American Apparel blow out, (neon leotards and legwarmers anyone?), getting fit doesn't have to mean getting funky, especially if Chanel has anything to do with it. For the park avenue princess desperate to tone up but wouldn't been seen dead in spandex, there is light at the end of the tunnel, with Chanel's line of sports accessories that promise to keep you looking Parisian chic even when you're breaking a sweat.

We all love Chanel, but aren't CC logo tennis rackets, dumbbells and, wait for it, fishing rods taking it a bit far? Well, if Chanel can make sport look this appealing, obviously not. This super cute pink racket is even more appealing than a sexy tennis coach, and was styled by Vogue with tennis superstar Maria Sharaprova last year, and if it's good enough for her ...
While I can't imagine many Chanel devotees getting down and dirty in a game of American football too often, Chanel gives a nod to all the couture tom-boys, and metrosexual jocks out there with a pig skin American football, adorned with the brand's iconic logo. Created in limited supply in 2007, these babies might be oldies, but as far as brand mania goes, they're goldies.

I taken by the kitch but chic feel of all these sporting pieces, but my personal favourite from the collection has to be Chanel bike, the perfect way for the pearl laden eco warrior to travel from shop to shop. This is the transportation equivalent of a 2.55, as understated as a Bentley and as luxurious as a Porshe, only without the carbon footprint and with considerably more quilting. Right now all I can say is , does anyone know where I can get a Chanel bowling ball?

These are all so unjustifiably absurd, I can't help but love them. Maybe if someone got me an entire Chanel gym set, I'd finally start working out. At least I think that's safe to say because I know no one will ever get me an entire Chanel gym set.
