The Most Expensive Boomerang

Chanel’s expensive boomerang has a price tag that could very well come back to haunt the fashion company. Chanel’s $1,325 wood and resin boomerang is the most expensive ever. French fashion label Chanel has been accused of appropriating Indigenous Australian culture by selling a $1,325 boomerang.

The Indigenous project officer at the Australian Museum notes the Chanel boomerang costs nearly 10% the average annual income of Indigenous Australians. Chanel is celebrating the launch of its Spring-Summer pre-collection with the sale of a chic Chanel-branded boomerang.
