BALLY AW20 Men
PURITY OF FORM
Featuring the new season collection, entitled Purity of Form; clean lines, organic materials and neutral tones reflect Bally’s long-standing respect for the environment and passion for design innovation, fusing Swiss heritage with a modern outlook. Soft shapes and sculptural silhouettes express the integrity and multitude of form.
Constructed from the shoe up, looks are built to endure, merging natural colorways with heritage craftsmanship, textured materials and fluid lines. One by one, classic, sartorial configurations reveal themselves, elegant, elemental and most of all free. Gestural, abstract prints, inspired by turn-of-the-century modernist art from Europe, marry archival Swiss textile patterns by Abraham Ltd., in a mélange that is effortlessly unexpected. Artful accessories and handbags own graphic dimensions and honor newfound signature house hardware.
With a sense of purpose, he elevates his every action and dares to be himself.

The Atlas collection of sporty backpacks and cross-body bags feature a linear stitch stripe and bi-color details, while Raise, the sporty nylon theme, is characterized by bold buckle details and a water-resistant finish. The new Vestige collection with sleek lines features the 1851 hardware in a range of functionalities.
