An unexpected combination of 1970s California youth culture and refined French equestrianism, Hermès’s take on the skateboard is as whimsical as it is luxurious. Handcrafted in the house’s French Sur-Mesure atelier, the board’s maple deck features a mandala-esque pattern of Hermès’s signature bridles. Printed using a special sublimation technique, the bridles’ bright pigments will remain in place for years to come—even if the recipient is brave enough to take it out for a spin or two.
Available as both a shortboard and a longboard, the skateboard makes the ideal gift for the art-savvy adrenaline junkie in your life. And since it is made in the same workshop where all of Hermès’s special orders are completed, the design of the deck, wheels, and hardware can be customized to suit the particular tastes of the recipient. Moreover, the vibrant, slightly psychedelic design dreamed up by Hermès artistic director Henri d’Origny is sure to make a stylish statement in just about any space.
The board can be ordered at Hermès boutiques throughout the United States.
