CHANEL J12 Marine Launch with Laird Hamilton

CHANEL J12 Marine Launch with Laird Hamilton

Over the weekend Chanel invited some fancy-pants people out to Montauk to celebrate the release of the lastest J12 Marine men’s watch.  Laird Hamilton, the new brand ambassador, is a professional surfer and married to professional volley ball player Gabrielle Reece.  “Like CHANEL’s newest brand ambassador, Laird Hamilton, CHANEL has allowed themselves to be swept away by the beauty of the waves, and has incorporated these elements into the design of the J12 Marine, the newest addition to CHANEL’s fine timepiece collection.”

The guests ““…dined on fresh seafood at wooden tables and then gathered around the fire pit for cocktails and smores.”  Can we say jealous?  And how about the surf boards?  I’ve always been to scared to try surfing but a Chanel surf board can easily sway me…

The event looks like it was awesome and though you may not think of Chanel when you think of surfing, Chanel always manages to have that magic touch that makes just about anything seem like it was meant to be paired with Chanel.  My only question is, where was my invitation to this? :)
