Luxuy French brand Hermés recently launched a blue ball. No, no that kind of a blue ball but a blue basketball using calfskin and the same hand-stitching technique found in its iconic Birkin bag. And while the Birkin bag is priced at $65,000, you’ll most likely need an NBA players salary to get your hands on this sporty piece de resistance. What’s the cost like? Well, it’s going for $12,900. Hey, that sure seems like a reasonable price for a basketball. And totally worth it huh? Um, you know, for reasons.
There’s only two such basketballs that has been produced at the special-orders atelier in Paris under the creative direction of Pierre-Alexis Dumas. Being such a unique masterpiece, thieves should have no problem identifying the filthy rich douchebag who would be obnoxious enough to bring this out to play.
