WE Chronicle: Hermès Basketball

hermes_basketball_00

Everyone seems to be a collector of something, whether it is a deck of game cards, or an extravagant pair of shoes that the owner has meticulously preserved under layers of tissue paper.

To commemorate the re-opening of their lavish Beverly Hills boutique, iconic French label Hermés came up with the idea of fusing pop culture into luxury, by creating this only-two in the world edition of a bright blue calfskin basketball.

You can most certainly play with it on a court, but the focus tends more towards the symbol of power, to have ownership of something so grand. According to the brand, the rather unique item, which was produced under the special ateliers in Paris, speaks “the sky, the ocean and all the beautiful pools that are a way of life in L.A. and Southern California”.

We can definitely see anyone who is someone in the hop-hop music business getting their hands on this, or probably bid by a city dweller that is in ‘need’ to be recognised.
