We already had the opportunity to see famous brands to flaunt with their signatures on such trivial things, but with a whopping price. Chanel is also one of them with its luxury monogrammed boomerang, priced at €1,260 ($1,500).
Boomerang is well known as a weapon used by Indigenous Australians for hunting. Boomerangs have been historically used for hunting, as well as a sport, and entertainment. They are commonly thought of as an Australian icon, and come in various shapes and sizes.
Now, Chanel has caused controversy because turned the traditional hunting weapon into a status symbol.
The indigenous community in Australia says this is yet another example of crass cultural appropriation.
The item is listed on Chanel’s website under Other Accessories in the 2017 Spring-Summer pre-collection, along with other gadgets like $1,600 tennis racket, a beach set for $3,600 and a $422 pack of tennis balls.
