At Bally, Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz presented a striking collection, which combined severe architectural shapes with feminine details. A sensual silk see-through top with leather details inspired by leaves, for example, was paired with a knee-length leather skirt that helped balance the stiffness of a leather biker jacket with a shearling collar. Leather was also teamed with stretch wool on a sophisticated, draped and fitted dress with a napa ruffle at the waist. The mostly sober palette of black, deep blue and slate was given a jolt of bright red on a leather trenchcoat, also with a shearling collar, worn over a matching ladylike cropped jacket and a fitted dress with an asymmetric edge.
For the footwear, the design duo went back to the Swiss company’s archive, reworking styles from 1969. The result was a range of leather lace-up heeled boots, booties and spectator pumps.
