Vogue commissions designer tennis balls for the US Open

American Vogue helped celebrate the launch of the U.S. Open in the most interesting way this season. They commissioned 11 designers to create customized tennis balls. Designers include Tory Burch, Peter Som, Maria Sharapova, Fenton, Pamela Love, Erickson Beamon, Warby Parker, Creatures of The Wind, Rag & Bone, Eddie Borgo, Monique Lhuillier and Diane von Furstenberg.

We all know Anna Wintour is a big fan of tennis so this collaboration should come as no great surprise. When I first heard this was happening I sort of rolled my eyes and thought, “what on earth?”. However, the end result is fantastic. We have here nearly a dozen tennis balls that are each worthy of a their own display cabinet. No word yet on where these will go, ie. charity auction or a Vogue desktop. We’ll keep you in the loop once we hear. {Vogue}
