Louis Vuitton’s new $4,500 handbag looks like a basketball


After dropping a $39,000 airplane-inspired handbag earlier in the year, Louis Vuitton is all set to continue the quirk with its latest edition. Shaped like a basketball, we’re talking about the marquee’s novel ‘Ball in Basket’ bag that it has recently launched in collaboration with NBA.


Previewed earlier in its joint lookbook with the NBA, the bag is part of SEASON 2 of the collaborative collection. It is made from full ball grain leather and features gold-colored hardware, internal LV lining, and a strap with a built-in luggage tag design. The surface of the bag further comes with a debossed LV Monogram pattern with NBA’s classic red, white, and blue logo stitched in the middle of the purse.

Extremely versatile, the bag can be equipped with its detachable basketball netting or worn alone. It is the same size as an official NBA basketball and could make a mighty gift for a fan of the game. The luxe edition is big enough for headphones, protein bars, and other game-day essentials and can be donned on a match day for added oomph.
