I had the pleasure to be invited to Bally AW 2014 Women's Collection presentation in Milan during Fashionweek.
Bally is a brand with such a rich heritage , is 162 years old and has become the leading Swiss luxury accessory brand.
The luxury fashion house now has a new creative director: Pablo Coppola.
A graduate of Paris' Institut Francais de la Mode , he was head of accessories at Tom Ford and previoisly senior accessories designer at Alexander Mc Queen , Christian Dior , Burberry and Celine.
Certainly the new creative director has infused glamour and excitement and the products speak for themselves!
The three principles of Bally : Innovation, Functionality and Elegance as well as cutting-edge techniques and world-class craftmanship are all part of Bally's passion for perfection.
Details are never neglected: the punctuation of a brogue, the soft touch of a bag's leather, the classic silhouette of a sartorial jacket, the elegant contour of a Bally heel.
BALLY AW14 Women's Collection has the sophisticated approach of a perfect wardrobe for the real woman.
The collection marks a clear new direction that redifines the brand's heritage.
This is a collection of confident, easy going silhouettes perfect for the modern woman!
A perfect shoe wardrobe is the key factor and Bally has a design for every need: from work to dinner, high luxe to off duty occasions.
The heel is stacked and rounded this season, matched with pointed or rounded toe in pumps , ankle boots and knie-high boots.
The finish is highly polished in shades of burgundy, military green and black.
Stiletto pumps are also in shades of stone and neon yellow.
Bags have clean lines, minimal hardware but contemporary heritage signatures.
The quality of the leather is superb!
Bally's updated crest motif , a reference to Switzerland's mountain peaks is embossed near the handles of the "Bloom" Bag.
The "Gentlewoman" Bag structured and square-shaped has a levelled angle on its base inspired by a century old Bally design detail of a Gentlemen's corner.
The ready-to-wear is perfect for a modern dynamic woman.
Men's tailoring are found in the outerwear collection and suiting but proportions are precisely balanced: a shortened cashmere-bonded leather blouson, Prince of Wales black and white check coats are perfectly paired with wide-legged high-waist trousers and cashmere knits.
The predominant colours are Bally Red, navy, black, blush , military , stone and citrus yellow.
The collection is ideal for the modern woman 's wardrobe made of ultra luxe separates that are fresh and authentic.
