Segway Is Chic – The Chanel Segway!

  • Pin it

Der Kaiser thinks Segway is chic! So chic, he decided to make a Chanel one! It’s maybe his way to say that even he’s using a Hummer, he wishes we use a Segway!

Now let me explain what a Segway is: it’s the adult, lazy version of the good’ol tricycle, a kind of Moto-Tricycle for those who aren’t yet sure they want to leave the childhood playground but they really want a motorcycle (ah, and they’re eco-friendly because the Segway runs on battery!). (the story continues right after the jump!)

Black Chanel Segway

While Segway still looks like a toy to me (and to many more, if we’re to believe the inventors of the Segway who seriously struggles to change the toy-name they’ve been labeled with) I’ll try to take a serious approach because of the Chanel Segway.

I’ve seen Chanel declining itself into so many sports-related products, I’m really convinced that comes from the Kaiser’s overwhelming sense of humor. While he’s absolutely anti-sportive, Karl Lagerfeld takes the Chanel name and associates it with Ski, Tennis, Fishing, Cycling, Fitness. Now the Segway. While the Segway is more of a locomotive attitude than a sportive one, because of the special technique allowing the rider to control his direction by leaning towards where he wants to go it involves the user in an active way.

Chanel 2.55 Segway

The Segway is largely used by security firms and even Police patrols so it’s really taking a hold of population. What you may not know is when you buy a Chanel Segway, you also receive the legendary Chanel 2.55 bag! Ironically, it comes attached to the Segway! The price of the new Segway Chanel isn’t public yet for the chic thing itself is available on order, but now I really have to balance things thoroughly – a Chanel 2.55 or a Chanel 2.55 AND a Chanel Segway?

Kpriss you do know that the Kaiser rides around on his Segway in his home and in the Salon? : )
And the wee Kaiser (his bear alike) sits in the Chanel bag in the front issuing orders to the staff and the creative team. : )
I fell in love with the Segway while watching GOB ride around on one on “Arrested Development”. I would never want on myself but I do find them rather comical. : )

In my head it’s indissolubly tied to The Mall Cop so it’s fun-related for me too! I guess we’re really far from taking the Segway seriously, let alone chic! ohhh, my Chanel 2.55! And to think I was that close to receiving a Segway with that marvelous bag!

Another Segway riding comic king!
