To celebrate the re-opening of its 12,000-square-foot Beverly Hills boutique on Rodeo Drive, fashion brand Hermès is offering its first-ever basketball – at a cost of $12,900.
Only two of the unique, blue basketballs have been produced. The Hermès basketball is hand-stitched in the same manner as a Birkin handbag, and is made out of bull calfskin.
Hermès says the blue basketball represents the sky, ocean and pools that are a way of life in southern California.
