Re-centering its ready-to-wear collection on leather — its core expertise — Bally produced a lineup rich in luxurious outerwear, ranging from a sporty shaved shearling cape to an ultra-sophisticated white mink hoodie. The brand’s creative directors, Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz, were inspired by the boyish elegance of photojournalist Lee Miller, thus a shearling bomber jacket was paired with tweed trousers and ultra-cozy marmot boots with rabbit fur lining for a chic update on Fifties après-ski style. Other highlights included a coat made from strips of white mink and black napa leather, set off by graphic two-tone brogues, made for the first time in the Bally men’s shoe factory. “The emphasis is to ensure that the ready-to-wear is really in keeping with the beautiful quality and craftsmanship within the shoes,” Fidler said, noting that Bally’s rtw currently makes up 10 percent of the brand’s total business.


The bags borrowed heavily from Miller’s Forties camera bags and featured round tubular styles and a “secret” compartment on top, designed to fit today’s camera of choice, the iPhone. Meanwhile, the Papillon bag, introduced for spring, was reworked in a new “cable” pattern in striking black-and-white combos.
