Chanel decided selling a $1,325 boomerang was a good ideaby Circa News

Well, someone thinks that there's a market for a couture boomerang.

Chanel is under fire after including a $1,325 boomerang in its collection of new spring and summer accessories, the BBC reports

 The product, described as a black wood-and-resin, sports the brand's iconic double C logo.

Members of Australia's Indigenous community are accusing the luxury brand of cultural appropriation. "It's simply a misappropriation of aboriginal culture," the chief executive of the Indigenous Arts Code says.

And it's no surprise it picked up the attention of the Twittersphere. 

The boomerang is a cultural artifact of Indigenous Australians.

Makeup mogul Jeffree Star tweeted a photo showing off the Chanel boomerang.

The designer house apologized, saying respect is one of the company's core values. But the company would not say whether it would be withdrawn from sale. 

"Chanel is extremely committed to respecting all cultures, and deeply regrets that some may have felt offended," read the fashion house's statement.

But not everyone finds it offensive.

The 2017 sporswear collection also includes a tennis racket ($1,550), black-and-white tennis balls ($475), beach racket and balls ($3,350).

We're betting the boomerang is one designer fashion the company may not want to come back.
