Just when we thought designer gear was limited to clothes, handbags and shoes, Chanel decided to prove us all wrong with collections for sports lovers who didn't want to sacrifice glamour while out on the field. First there was ski wear, then golf bags, followed by a tennis collection. This season, Chanel wows the crowd again with a range designed especially for its horse-loving customers. Equestrian fans can choose from items including a lambskin riding helmet ($7,900), leather whip ($2,100) and, for the ultimate indulgence, leather riding boots with the famous double-C logo ($16,900). The collection will be available next month at all Chanel boutiques, including the Prince's Building, Central, tel: 2810 0978.
