Bally Women's Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection

  • PDF

Inspired by a young women's visit to a Bally store with her diplomat father in the 1970s, at the time when Bally first launched ready-to-wear, Bally's Autumn/Winter Women's collection captures the romance of a high life lived around the world in dazzling locations with exacting standards.

This is a journey that leads us into 'The Bally Store' where we encounter and are immersed in the brand's nostalgia re-created from an early Bally archive poster in Kodachrome kitsch.

Bearing the understated yet chic urban design hallmarks of Bally Creative Directors Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler, this sophisticated lifestyle collection offers a panorama of luxury and elegance. With leather very much to the fore, desirable leather statement coats create razor sharp silhouettes that once taken off, reveal an alluring indoor look for the modern style-conscious woman.

The chic simplicity of a jersey dress with a leather neckline is romantically softened by the skirt's unexpected volume to temper the architectural silhouette. Trimmed with lustrous sheared mink and soft shearling , an exquisitely crafted multi-faceted guard's coat in sumptuous bonded plonge leather sets a new benchmark in craftsmanship excellence.

Tapping directly into Bally's DNA, the impeccable finish of a Diplomat's hand-made Bally Scribe has been transformed into beautifully elegant shoes and accessories worthy of his daughter; the stacked heel of over-the-knee boots, booties and pumps, and the elegant simplicity of a diplomatic case shrunk to a classic clutch in matte French calf with ostrich trim are signature pieces of this beautifully nuanced collection.
