10 luxury designer buys you didn’t know you needed
From Chanel tennis racquets to Louis Vuitton boxing gloves
Skate culture, sport, and leisure in general is constantly influencing fashion. High-fashion designers are injecting sport-luxe pieces into their collections and collaborating with street-wear brands on lifestyle products, so everything from your headband to your tennis racquet can reflect your style. The latest designer lifestyle range to join our wishlist is the Hermès collection of skateboards and long boards.
The range will consist of three styles, all designed by Henri d’Origny, and to be honest, we’re not sure we’d ever want to take them outside the lounge-room. They truly are works of art.
Here, ten luxury sporting items adorned with the iconic logos and signature designs we’ll always be coveting.
