Remember a few years ago when we talked about Vogue magazine making surfing high fashion? Well, things are getting ever surfier over at Chanel...



Yeah, sure, I guess. I must say, however, that that is possibly the prettiest man I have ever seen. I don't know what it means in terms of surfing, but Pete Bowes would probably have something to say about all of that, I imagine.
