In anticipation of the NBA All-Star Weekend, luxury fashion house Gucci launched a psychedelic looking GG basketball -- retailing for $1,980 USD -- that will be available at the West Loop pop-up shop. Alongside this unique ball, attendees will also get a chance to check out the brand's soon-to-launch rainbow-colored GG Psychedelic Collection that will debut in Gucci retailers and online later this month.
The West Loop pop-up shop will also include players from the NBA and WNBA who will celebrate the two Chicago-based recipients of the Gucci North America Changemakers Impact Fund: After School Matters -- a nonprofit that strives to provide after-school programs and opportunities to almost 20,000 high school teens annually.
