Would you buy a 'Chanel' brand helmet or crop?

My sister has recently pointed out that the 'high fashion' brand Chanel has created a whole Equestrian line, helmets, crops, show jackets, boots, etc. probably at disgustingly high prices considering you have to call for pricing details

They don't look too fancy to me...

I would buy the helmets if I was filthy rich.

A horse of course!

I read somewhere those Helmets were 10,000.00

Someone fell of their Horse without a helmet when the came up with that price

I can't imagine anybody paying that kind of money for a brand name

I keep picturing a $10K helmet with a $500 dollar horse...which reminds me of the southern saying when referring to expensive accouterments on something cheap..."that's like putting designer jeans on a K-mart a$$"...

I think a Chanel crop would be kinda cute, but I've got more important things to spend my money on. Like hay.

ETA: BLEH! That first helmet is awful! I kinda like the second one though.

Maybe if I was filthy rich and had nothing better to spend my money on. ;)

Honestly though, they don't look 'high fashion'. Pull off the Chanel logo and you have your basic helmets and crops.
