Hermes release $12900 Basketball

Nothing says douchebag baller quite like showing up to your local basketball court with a $12 900 blue calf skin designer basketball which US Hermes CEO Robert Chavez insists is sturdy enough to be used saying “…why not make such a unique item come to life on the court?”. Riiiiight.

The ball was released by Hermes to mark the re-opening of their Beverley Hills boutique following renovation. The luxury brand responsible for one of the most famous purses ever made, the Birkin, have previously made footballs and soccer balls, but always in the traditional Hermes orange. Chavez explained the use of the blue as representing “…the sky, the ocean and the beautiful pools that are a way of life in LA”.

Imagine having to knock on your neighbour’s door to get that off the roof.
