It’s A Stick Up!

chanel gun heelsI don’t like guns.  I don’t think anyone should have them.  But what about a Chanel gun?  No, Chanel isn’t making guns but that doesn’t mean other people aren’t taking liberties and interpreting what a Chanel gun would look like.  Of course, Karl Laferfeld gave us a little hint when he let loose Chanel gun heels on the runway in Miami for the Chanel Cruise 2009 Collection.  But of the guns pictured below I can say for certain that 2 of the 3 are not made by Chanel – the third remains a mystery but I’m betting that it’s not authentic.  Either way, they are clever in their own way…

1.  Chanel 001 Cosmetic Gun by Ted Norton -Dutch jewelry designer Ted Norton created a gun that cleverly stows 7 “essential” items a lady may need upon leaving her home:  “[Chanel] lip gloss, antique hairpin, 18 carat gold toothpick, a vile of perfume, a 50 gram 24 carat gold bar, a USB stick and a Viagra pill.”  The gun costs $17,000.  Source.

2.  Chanel Gold Pistol

I don’t know anything about this gun other than a friend owns it and she emailed me a photo to ask me if I knew anything about it.  My hunch that it isn’t real but you never know…

  1. Very cool bloggy blog, love it and totally get the obsession with Chanel :)

    I have a pair of vintage Chanel gun dangle earrings that are likely from the 1960′s and they are gorgeous! They are super rare and hard to find now but I have them on consignment. If you’d like to post a photo of them, I’d be happy to send a pic to you!
