Stay Away From The Tennis Aisle, Chanel

September 23, 2009

I was flicking through the ‘much-easier-to-handle-than-the-September-issue,’ October issue of Vogue… and I found THIS…

You probably don’t recognise it. I had to look at the caption as it appeared to be some kind of hat. It was described as, ‘chic chanel tennis racquet’. I know what you all are thinking, you cannot possibly of been looking at the right picture, Kait. This is clearly not an object made for tennis and instead perhaps a glorified wedding veil, or fly trap. I can assure you I too thought it looked better suited to straining Kava than playing tennis and absolutely scoured the page for a picture that better fits the caption, but alas, this appears to be it.

Which brings me to my next point.

Chanel, clearly thinking Roger Federer is going to be first in line for this piece of sporting architecture, has retailed ‘it’ at AU$720.

Seven Hundred And Twenty.

For a raquet that has a giant flower in the middle for what exactly? Increasing air resistance? Bringing the weight balance closer to the frame? Causing your opponent to curl over laughing?

Stop embarassing yourself, Chanel. If you do want someone to give this monstrosity a go, the only person I can think of is Novak Djokovic. He clearly hates his current one.
