Chanel Bocce Ball Set for Summer
In time for the lazy days of summer, Chanel is offering a vintage-inspired bocce ball set in a braided wicker and leather case. The set, priced at about at about $2,800, includes eight stainless steel bocce balls engraved with the Chanel logos and a wooden "jack" or target ball. The case is finished in two-tone brown and natural woven wicker with Chanel's trademark interlocking C's done in braided rope on top, and brown saddle leather straps and handle. The set resembles a vintage picnic case and is no doubt meant to be used on the lawn of a gracious country house. Given that Chanel is a French fashion house we're not sure why this isn't called a Pétanque set, but there you have it. Meanwhile, British model-turned-TV star Alexa Chung, who has gotten her hands on one of the sets in advance of their public offering, has been using the stylish case as a handbag.
