But can you ride it with 6-inch heels?
Channel has released a limited addition, $13,000 vintage commuter bike with Chanel’s signature quilted leather touches. It will be available in Chanel boutiques in time for Christmas..
The guys over at the Goat say "Steal this bike. It’s likely that the person who buys the Chanel commuter bike lives in a money-insulated bubble where nothing bad ever happens. It’s this feeling of safety that will cause them to buy a cheap bike lock for their $13000 cruiser. If you see this bike with a cable lock and you are a cyclist, then you are morally obliged to break the cable lock and ride the bike away as fast as possible. Donate it to a kid or just ghostride it off the monkey bars in the park. At that point it only matters that you’ve taken this limited-edition 8-speed bike off the streets and out of the hands of someone who can’t appreciate the economic and social importance of cycling."
