Proving that his first season's success at Bally wasn't just beginner's luck, Brian Atwood followed it up with a fall collection that again combined the brand's signature luxury with a modern, relaxed elegance. Atwood struck a chord of bohemian cool with a paisley chiffon dress worn under a soft coyote coat and ribbed cashmere leggings. Ethnic touches were laced throughout the collection, with embroidery on fox-trimmed felted cashmere jackets and vests reminiscent of the traditional dress of Eastern European peasants. Moving further east, Atwood topped his looks with colorful brocade coats and ombré Tibetan-print fringed scarves. The accessories, while more muted, complemented the eclectic ready-to-wear and reflected a quiet luxury. Buttery crocodile hobos and ostrich patent pieces came in rich browns and grays, while shoes featured buckles and covered platforms. Since last season's shoe case did very well, a full luggage collection has been added. The company said that last season's sales exceeded expectations, so it looks as if Bally and Atwood are a good combo.
