The Chanel rugby ball is a unique commemorative piece of sports gear from the French couture fashion house. Released in celebration of the Rugby World Cup, the Chanel rugby ball comes in black, burgundy, navy and white and features the prestigious brand's name embroidered into the leather.

While the brand's image is much unlike the rough and tumble sport, the ball is a unique collectors item that would look great in any rugby fan's living room. The Chanel rugby ball features the fashion house's signature quilted leather, while it's pricing is available upon request.

Although seemingly arbitrary, the Chanel Rugby World Cup tribute comes in a long line of designers who have created their own takes on professional sports equipment.
In 2014, Alexander Wang released boxing gloves in his H&M capsule collection.
