Remedy to a Post-Print Hangover with Bally

by Lucia Barone

Bally may be mired in a lawsuit with Adidas over three white stripes but that did not stop Bally from producing another exquisite collection to showcase in the midst of a very packed Milan Fashion Week. The raw reds and the delicate whites are a good indication of Bally's commitment to provide collections in solid colors sans prints. Whether or not that is a rejection of a print movement is up to the historians but Bally does this better than all and it is a joy to behold.
