FALL WINTER 2023.24 WOMENSWEAR COLLECTIONS
“A duality of strength and sensuality is evoked across menswear and womenswear through the rich hand of leather, metallics and knitwear with lashings of lace creating a heightened sense of everyday, everywhere feel-good drama. Exquisitely crafted tailoring evokes an entrepreneurial spirit, an ambitious mood matched by the après-ski aesthetic that takes its cue from the timeless alpine glamour of icons of the silver screen. Statement outerwear includes oversized faux fur coats and puffers quilted in archival diamond matelassé which serve as a highlight. Completing the opulent full wardrobe, handbags, footwear, and jewelry both complement and demand main-character attention. The Tilt Bag for women and Arkle Tote for men are multidisciplinary, mirrored in the versatility of the collection’s thigh-high and ankle boots. Jewelry is bold and original, both a decoration and confident declaration. Confidently demonstrating a collision of heritage with the brand’s new language, the graphism of all-over logomania is celebrated with the Bally emblem, respectfully reinforcing the brand’s new era.” – from Bally
