The 3.0 Basketball bag was created in early 2016, paying homage to her own love of the game – both as a fan and player – TOMMEs founder sources unique basketballs from all over the world alongside her own brand and reinterprets each design as a statement-making accessory. Intricately constructed by her by hand, the curated range of bags present a forward-looking design.
The aim, to try and connect feminine and masculine together and ultimately create items that make people feel empowered and confident when they wear them

TOMME x Space Jam: A New Legacy
Price Point: Ranges from £185 up to £275
Collection Inspiration: Designer and founder Kelly Gunner’s main source of inspiration for the pieces was taken from the new artwork sheI was given the privilege of having access to at the beginning of the design process. Knowing that she wanted the pieces to have a ‘pop art’ feel, she took inspiration from brands like Moschino. As a huge fan of the original film also, she wanted something that had a retro 90s feel to it, yet felt fresh and captured the excitement of a new film. Who doesn’t love Lebron and Bugs Bunny!
Design Elements: All basketballs are composite leather with d-embossed logos. Basketball’s range from Size 6 (28.5′) to size 5 (27.5’) and size 3 (22’) and the handles are leather with satin linings.
“It’s a huge honour for a small brand such as mine to be involved in such a mainstream event. I’m a huge Lebron fan and loved the original film, and know that the combination will be a huge success. I’m just overwhelmed to be involved and excited to share these designs with the world.” – Kelly Gunner, TOMME Designer and Founder
