Vogue's Custom-made US Open Tennis Balls
Catherine Piercy, Vogue
In honor of the U.S. Open, which begins today, eleven designers-and one tennis legend-embarked on trademark customizations that hit the classic tennis ball into a new and glamorous realm. And as tradition would have it (remember our designer-decorated Easter eggs and Halloween pumpkins?), the results aced expectations. Let's just say pearls, rhinestones, spikes, lace, and a ruby-red pout were some of the techniques in play this season. Click through our slideshow above and meet us at match point.
