All Victor Solomon wants to do is elevate the game of basketball, an intention that shines through across all of his art. Infamous for his intricate NBA trophies and crystal “Vessel” basketball sculptures, the multidisciplinary artist is taking his Literally Balling label to new heights; for the first time, Solomon is introducing a fully-fledged Literally Balling merchandise capsule – entitled the Maison Capsule – which consists of apparel, accessories and court-regulated balls, all sure to elevate your game both on and off the courts.
The Maison Capsule is led by five pieces of apparel: a Maison Sweatshirt and matching Maison Sweatpants, two t-shirts and a pair of mesh shorts. The Maison Sweatshirt is lined with gold Literally Balling-domed seam buttons and gold Literally Balling embroidery along the upper chest, complemented by Solomon’s signature net motif puff paint along the wristbands. The Maison Sweatpants mirror the crewneck in design, also boasting the same gold detailing and net-inspired puff paint.
However, it’s Maison Capsule’s jewelry that might stand out the most, with a striking gold Stone Seam Pendant ($500 USD), boasting 18k gold vermeil over 925 silver and synthetic diamonds, leading the pack; the Stone Seam Pendant is also available in silver for $400 USD. Other offerings span a Wraparound Ball Ring (available in both silver and gold), as well as a Starting Five ID Bracelet, also available in both silver and gold.

A white synthetic Gator Ball is regulation size, of course, and comes equipped with an acrylic ring display stand. Additional accessories include a Seam Playbook – a gold foiled notebook complete with the signature seam line pattern – as well as the “Ball Responsibly” flask and seam-lined phone case. Take a closer look at the pieces in the gallery below.1 of 14
