Handle Your Scandal: Chanel’s “Hot” Couture – The Fashion House Recalls Flammable Clothing
It’s rare that clothing gets recalled, especially from high-end designers. But that’s exactly what’s happening to Chanel.
It’s rumored that the Paris-based fashion house has recalled 120 scarves and 34 garment styles after the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found that they failed to meet the federal flammabilty standard.
According to the CPSC all the garments were 100 percent silk and were sold at Chanel Boutiques, Neiman Marcus, and Maxfield stores.
The silk garments were sold in March and April of last year for $430-$3,650. CPSC reported that most of the pieces were returned to Chanel in May of last year, but if there is anyone else out there who has a Chanel silk garment they haven’t worn yet “immediately stop using the garments and contact the firm to receive a full refund.”
Wow. Thank God for safety measures on clothing.
What do you make of Chanel’s very public clothing recall?
