Skis by Chanel

A few years ago there were Chanel rainboots-white rubberized jobs with 60-point, ebony, intertwined CC logos on the heels-and then there were Chanel snowboots-also appropriately labeled for the uninformed to quickly acknowledge that the weatherproof footgear was Chanel footwear, not just mukluks gone fashionista. Then there were the Chanel snowboards. (Could you resist?) And now there are the Chanel skis, tagged at $4,055.
From the winter Chanel Sport Collection, these lightweight, sleek skis come with either a black lacquered-looking finish or a natural wooden finish. Both styles have the word "Chanel" emblazoned on the backs (and sides) and the classic intertwined alphabet logo on the tips, so everyone will know whence your equipment hails. Be forewarned, with skis like this, you really better know how to schuss down a slope.
