Take it to the courts if you dare.

If you thought Louis Vuitton’s insanely pricey volleyball and ping pong set were rare lapses in the fashion world’s sanity, we regret to inform you that you thought wrong.

Gucci has dropped an updated version of its super fancy branded basketball, which retails for a casual $3,320.

The ball previewed as part of the label’s 2019 Métiers d’Art collection, and maintains the line’s luxe, metallic colour palette.

An all-black ball features double branding in either silver or gold. It also comes with a practical chain bag to carry your equipment around in, so it never has to touch the dirty ground if you don’t want it to.

Now available in limited quantities across Australia, you can get your presumably rich hands on the ball at select Chanel boutiques.
