Unlike the Boomerang – the cash won’t be back.

Meet the Chanel boomerang. It’s the Chanel of boomerangs apparently.

It’s available online for purchase right now for just $1930 (AUD) YES! It comes with nothing else. The Spartan display page gives away very little detail other than it is “black” and made of “wood and resin”. Nothing says Indigenous cultural heritage more than a French designer label.

What better way to kick off fashion week than with a throwback to the the sort of product you would have found on sale during the 80s heyday of overseas interest in Australiana.

Based on the picture – whatever it does, it’s doing it now.

So, if you’d love to throw away a couple of grand – buy the Chanel boomerang RIGHT NOW!

Fabulous fashion people like stylist Jeffree Star are already totally all over it.

It also looks as if Chanel has made boomerangs in the past with a number of online retail stores offering different coloured ones for resale.

This yummy steamy racy silver one is just $295.

It's not clear if any Indigenous artists were involved in the production of this fabulous piece of taste.

Chanel has told NITV News in a statement the company is "extremely committed to respecting all cultures, and regrets that some may have felt offended."
