Summer has definitely arrived and we're ready to hit all the beautiful beaches in the world. We can't imagine a better beach companion than a great designer towel. And while we have previously feasted our eyes on versions from Missoni or Hermès, we can't help but think that Chanel has outdone any other fashion house with their new beach set.
Is this Chanel madness?
Like many other outrageous articles, such as surfboards and tennis paddles, this is something only a brand like Chanel can pull off. Any other smaller label would probably be ridiculed if they would sell similar products, especially with these crazy-high price tags. But the house of Chanel just seems make our hearts flutter with every design they launch, and this beach set is no exception.
Perfect for a Chanel getaway
The new Chanel beach set, as it comes with a bag too, is part of the Metiers d’Art 2016 Paris in Rome collection that's hitting the Chanel shops right now. The set consists of a large double-handed tote and a totally matching beach towel, with the a very similar kind of detail used for their exclusive jackets. The set is made from a terrycloth cotton, that is made to look like the famous Chanel boucle fabric. And if you're wondering about that steep price tag, the set can be yours for €1480.
