Bally leans on its mountain heritage inspired by nostalgic Swiss motifs. The décor of the Swiss Hearts accessories is based on the brass hearts found on traditional colourfully painted cowbells which have become a favourite souvenir take away from an Alpine visit.
The design appears on Bally’s new season handbags including the half-moon shaped Harryet and slouchy Kyrah, Bally’s new supple construction styles, and the popular Cecyle and Suzy bags. Other styles include belt bags, a tote style, camera bag, backpack and pouch bag. A sandal in flat and heeled versions also bears the mountain lifestyle inspired theme.
The brass hearts are reinterpreted in a sleek gold finish, bearing the Bally logo, and displayed stand alone or grouped in trios. With precision laser-cut leather, floral lace (typical of traditional Swiss dress) is recreated as trims on the leather goods with an engraved and painted whipstitch border. Purse straps feature striped fringe trims in a subtle nod to the Bally Stripe and recall the colourful trim on leather straps that hold the decorative cow bells.
Available in three colourful combinations based on black, tan and stone plain calf leather launching in April at Bally stores worldwide and Bally.com
