During Paul's years as visual director for Chanel, we collected various “novelty” pieces from each season's collection. We were always tickled by the idea of an iconic brand like Chanel making basketballs, kites, surfboards and the like, wondering if people actually used them once they bought them. Truthfully, we almost never did, but we appreciated their camp value, and like all collectors, their scarcity!
