The first thing that comes to mind when you think of the famous Tiffany & Co. blue certainly isn’t a footy. But, the brand had a surprising history in sports, having made the trophies for many major sports for some of the world’s biggest competitions. The brand’s history dates back as far as 160-years, and this year, they’re taking things out of the trophy cabinet with a sports capsule at Tokyo’s Cat Street store.
When: July 2 to August 31
Where: Japan, 〒150-0001 Tokyo, Shibuya City, Jingumae, 6 Chome−14−5 Cat Street
Price: US$380 – $630
Offerings are extremely limited with a selection of key sporting goods. This includes American maple skateboard decks, Spalding basketball/soccer ball, and (our favourite) the Gilbert rugby ball. All pieces in the collection will feature the Cat Street Logo, representing the exclusive capsules pop-up location.
Unfortunately for us Aussie’s who can’t wait to get our hands on a Gilbert and give it a grubber, the collection has no signs of a release date Downunder. But, for those lucky enough to live in the land of the rising sun you’ll have the chance to purchase items from the collection from July 2 – August 31. It won’t be cheap, however, with prices ranging between US$380 – $630. Maybe the grubber kick might have to make room for a space in the trophy cabinet after all.
The brand itself actually mentions that while these items are certainly playable, they recommended retiring them to the trophy cabinet or using them as home decorations. We still reckon some loose head should do it for the gram and slide the Tiffany Gilbert in for a meat pie. That’s a ‘try’ for those of you who couldn’t hit a bull in the backside with a handful of wheat.
