TOMME Studio’s Collabs With Space Jam: A New Legacy
The perfect bag for on and off the court
TOMME Studio’s is famously known for their basketball-shaped bags and now the brand has collaborated with Space Jam: A New Legacy, a match made in heaven. The collection consists of TOMME’s trademark basketballs featuring the characters from Space Jam with a splash of a “pop art” feel.
This collaboration couldn’t be more perfect for each other since both the iconic movie series and the brand are all about basketball and the culture surrounding the game.
While celebrating her love for basketball, designer and founder Kelly Gunner, wanted TOMME to blend the vision of masculinity and femininity in its range of handcrafted basketball bags. Transforming an item rooted in a male-dominated sport into an individual, unisex piece of art, each TOMME bag boldly and confidently expresses a fused male/female aesthetic.
“It’s a huge honor 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,” said Gunner.
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 – TOMME’s 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 of the brand is to try and connect feminine and masculine together and ultimately create items that make people feel empowered and confident when they wear them.
Gunner’s main source of inspiration for this special collection was taken from the new artwork she 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’ effect, 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.
