BALLY x ANDRÉ SARAIVA Collaboration
BALLY design director Pablo Coppola teams up with artist André Saraiva on an exclusive capsule collection. As well as the capsule collection, André has designed a poster for Bally. The collection includes men’s and women’s boots, a makeup bag, travel wallets, a credit-card holder, key-ring, belt and silk scarf – beautifully illustrated with the poster print.
While packing for a trip, André rediscovered a pair of Bally boots he had bought at a vintage sale. The boots, originally from 1973, had such charm they have since become a distinctive part of his everyday look. Wanting to create a replica pair of boots for his girlfriend, the idea for a collaboration took shape. Pablo Coppola and André sat together studying and redesigning the charismatic boots, which led to a dynamic assortment of small leather goods, embossed with Andre’s distinctive stick figure character ‘Mr. A’ – commonly seen in his street art from Paris to New York. – from Bally
