Remember when Lagerfeld had the crazy idea of staging a couture show at a supermarket? While you were busy spotting clothes and accessories, the more tech-savvy subset of the fashion world had their eyes on the headphones that bore the maison’s famous interlocking Cs.
As early as then, people started speculating that the brand might be venturing into a co-branded product. It wasn’t such a wild idea, because Alexander Wang collaborated with beats to release his own set of luxe brushed gold and leather headphones.
And the Chanel headphones idea has really, actually happened – quilt and logo and all. What’s wild about this whole thing is the price: £4,170 or over Dh 25,000 a pop!
Designed in partnership with Monster, the headphones and matching carry case feature some of Chanel’s most iconic design elements. The cans are set to hit Chanel boutiques worldwide this month, so keep an eye out for them while making sure you’ve got enough balance on your account!
