2013 was the year the French fashion empire Chanel launched a few equestrian accessoires and although our love for Chanel is infinite, the branded wips and helmets cannot tempt us.
But did you know there’s also a saddler and luxury-leather goods maker called Chanel? French designer and restorer Guy Chanel gained his experience at the Hermès house in Paris and opened his own atelier in 1989. There is no connection with the dubble CC brand, but you can see the fashion influences in his creations. We love this chestnut alligator jumping saddle!
The hand-made saddles and leather goods are on individual order. If you are looking for something special, let your imagination guide you and plan a visit to Guy Chanel’s atelier.
