Trust Hermès To Come Out With A $13,000 Basketball

Hermes_basketball_a_pWhen it comes to creating uber expensive products, nobody can beat Hermès. To celebrate the reopening of its 12,000-square-foot Beverly Hills boutique on September 4th Hermès has created two bright blue basketballs, each priced at $ 12,900. The regular Spalding one costs $ 169.95.

Hermès, which has turned out footballs and soccer balls in the past, opted for California-chic, cool blue instead of their signature orange for the bull calfskin ball that’s made using the same hand-stitched technique as Hermes’ coveted Birkin.

The two basketballs were produced at special-orders atelier in Paris under the creative direction of Pierre-Alexis Dumas.
