Bally and the Mountains of Consistency

by Veronica Duffour

With the introduction of vintage Everest motif sweaters to the cowled colored shearlings, Bally finds its inspiration from the Alpine Peaks to the vast Swiss mountain ranges and produces a collection steeped in retro charm. Bally remains a brand that is polished and always well groomed, but never really going outside it’s comfort zones and while that may seem too static for some brands, Bally’s confidence in the aesthetics it propagates suggests a brand that likes to hold the line. And within that line is excellent stitching, carefully constructed narrative and a certain sense of posh comfort. Bally is what Bally has always been and for that reason Bally’s consistency is so admired.
