With its Fall/Winter 2021 collection unveiled during Milan Fashion Week, Bally celebrated its 170th anniversary by increasing its focus on sustainability and paying tribute to its artisans.

The collection included aspirational and attractive pieces whose aesthetic reflected the Alpine identity of the house – the brand is based in Switzerland.
For Fall/Winter 2021, the brand raised the bar on eco-friendly materials. A signatory of the Fashion Pact, the brand has increasingly invested in protecting the environment, including the creation last year of the Bally Peak Outlook Foundation to help preserve mountains around the world.
Thus, many pieces in this collection were made, for example, with thermoplastic polyurethane, which replaces polyvinyl chloride, and regenerated leather, while the plastics used are 100% recycled.
Robe coats for men and women in alpaca shearling were patterned by jacquard in the house B monogram, while handsome bags including 48-hour grips for men and buckets for women were determinedly but discreetly branded with monotone house Trainspotting striping and B lettering. The color palette hinged on warm, earthy tones that included moss, stone, ebony and clay.
And for the anniversary, Bally reinterpreted the Bally Stripe, streamlined through an embossing technique, while the 1851 symmetric hardware ran across footwear and accessories.
