Chanel designs Fashion Bicycle for $12,000

Did you know that renowned fashion houses are also playing their part in helping us save our planet apart from creating designer clothes, jewelry, leather stuff, and other accessories? Just now I came across this news about Chanel launching a specially designed bicycle as part of their latest collection. The limited-edition bike has been designed as part of Chanel’s spring/summer 2008 collection to celebrate the heritage of the house and Coco Chanel’s love of the sport. Exclusively hand-crafted, it is bedecked with Chanel’s signature quilted leather and double-C logo as well as a utility saddlebag. Weighing about 16.5 kilos, it comes with an attached 8-speed gear.

Undeniably, it is the chicest mode of green transport for this festive season. However, it will rip you off your greens as it can be bought from Chanel boutiques, December onwards for £6,200 ($ 12,400).
