As you lose yourself in facinating new cities and cultures, be dressed to take on adventure with the finest threads from Bally. Inspired by the urban, street culture of the Big Apple in the late 1970s, the collection embodies bold rebellion and understated chicness.
For the women’s collection, retro sportswear is reinterpreted, with a “contrasting mood of sophistication and varied proportions of juxtaposed fabrics.” Chains become a style statement on large leather accessories and shoes, playing up on the idea of overstated 1980s-style gold jewelry. Repetition of 1980s Bally logos, revived from archival typography and graphics, take prominence throughout, taking fashionistas back to an era of confident self-expression.
The men’s collection, on the other hand, mirrors the women’s, capturing the vibe of B-boys and B-girls and takes style cues from famed hip-hop artists of the day like Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Eric B., and Rakim to DJs Afrika Bambaataa. There is a definitive culture shift from disco to hip-hop.
In both collections, urban sportswear is elevated to a more modern look as seen in Bally’s retro sneakers, lightweight cagoules, trousers tucked into socks, zipped tops and canvas tote bags. Each piece becomes a stand-alone staple, inspiring you to wear it in your own way.
BALLY is located at Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-La Plaza and Newport Mall. Follow @ssilifeph on Instagram for more information.
