Referencing a Swiss mountain lifestyle, Bally has looked to its pioneering past with a contemporary proposition for Autumn Winter 2019.
The new Peak Outlook collection is inspired by the rich colours of Norwegian photographer Jarle Hagan’s portraits and illustrates Bally’s celebration of Swiss heritage and the mountains.
Under the theme ‘Journey to Switzerland’, the range of shoes, ready-to-wear and accessories was showcased at an exclusive event in Bally’s premier Sydney, Australia store in Pitt Street.
In this season’s collection, the luxury brand has recalled the sporty outdoor lifestyle of the 1990s and memories of winter weekend escapes with friends, while Swiss hearts adorn both clothes and accessories in a gentle ode to the mountains.
Bally has used fabrics including shearling, TPU, cashmere, wool, flannel, velvet and featherweight leather in the range.
At home in the environment she explores, the Bally woman is composed yet bold. With a nonchalant approach to getting dressed, her sense of adventure complements her romantic outlook.
The ready-to-wear collection is brimming with chunky knitted cardigans, thick winter coats and soft scarfs decorated with bold patterns and nostalgic Swiss motifs.
Suitable for city streets or mountain trails, Bally’s new range of hiking boots for women are a fashion-forward take on the traditional hiking boots of the 1930s and 1940s, with crochet lace and eyelets.
Bally’s signature half-moon Cecyle bag now includes a Mountain Peak mini-stud design and a diamond-quilted pattern with fringing, as well as seasonal novelties such as mini Swiss hearts and croco-stamp leather.
Exploring new terrain and the emotions it contains, the Bally man is a citizen of the world – expressing creativity through colourful and unexpected pairings.
At the core of the men’s range are sporty hiking sneakers and curling boots, including the Maloja boots which feature Wet Ice Technology soles by Vibram and continue the Zermatt and Lyskamm themes.
Dynamic outerwear makes a statement. The range includes everything from an angular cape and oversized blouson jacket, to a slim zip hoodie and sporty cargo trousers.
An archive drawing from a mountain expedition is intricately illustrated on several garments in Bally’s men’s collection, including a down-lined silk jacquard coat and ink-printed nappa tracksuit.
A 1970s-style Bally Polar logo is a feature on caps and sweatshirts and the Hawke backpack achieves a fine balance of being rugged yet fashionable.
