Vogue Magazine Presents The Chanel Bicycle, Because Coco Loved Sports

chanel bike 01 Vogue Magazine Presents The Chanel Bicycle, Because Coco Loved Sports

Despite my acute phobia of helmet hair, riding a bike suddenly seems like an attractive proposition… and I swear it has nothing to do with the new Chanel bicycle, which will be sold exclusively at Chanel boutiques next month. The eight-speed ergonomic bike is part of the luxury brand’s spring/summer 2008 collection and is an ode to Coco Chanel, who had a strong passion for sports.

In his 1996 book L’Allure de Chanel, Paul Morland quotes the legendary designer as claiming to have invented the female sport suit. Before that, she says, “They had very low waistlines, and were constrained at the hips, the legs, everywhere. By inventing the jersey, I liberated the body, I got rid of the waistline, I created a new silhouette.”

Now 11 years later, the company’s trying to do the same with the bike. Like the rest of Chanel’s line, the bicycle is destined to become an instant modern classic and a must-have for any socially conscious fashionista. It’s hand finished in refined black and of course is emblazoned with the obligatory double C logo. So what if it costs $12,400? Think of the all gasoline you’ll be saving and greenhouse gases you won’t be emitting. Well that is the the 2 hours your not jetting around the world in your private airplane, of course. Now, if only Chanel would design a bike helmet to match.(Spotted in Vogue Magazine)

Cameron Diaz is one of those Actresses, who just makes you feel happy. Maybe it’s because she always seems to be in the best mood. She lives in some magical happy place. I wish I could bottle her happiness and spray it on all the grumpy people of the world. Would that be great. So, you have to ask yourself, what makes this woman so happy? She isn’t married to Brad Pitt, she doesn’t have an Oscar and she isn’t married to Brad Pitt. Well, I think I now know the answer, she is living “G”! In the video above, she is on location in Palm Desert California, modeling for a new Vogue cover and she tells the camera guy, how green she really is. How she loves green fashion and her life. Check it out and if one of you out there, know Cameron, tell her to give us a call or email. We would love to make her a G Living cover girl. Are you reading this CAA?
