With his first collection for Bally, newly appointed design director Pablo Coppola nailed his mission: Bring the 163-year-old Swiss brand into the present day and design accessories for a strong, modern woman.

Coppola called this lineup a “palette cleanser,” and he took a simple and streamlined approach. Hardware was minimal on all the bags, including a satchel with a leather appliqué based on the Bally crest; an oversize sueded croc tote with a simple buckle, and a structured square shoulder bag, one of its corners cut so that it rested on an angle.

The footwear featured a rounded-toe ankle boot set on a chunky stacked heel, and pointy pumps done in velvet, calf hair and a smooth shiny leather in neutrals as well as the recently revived Bally red.

The ready-to-wear, designed by Alexandre Mattiussi, worked a similar minimal vibe. Done in luxurious fabrics, the chic daywear staples included a leather bomber jacket bonded with cashmere and worn with a feminine pencil skirt, and a boxy double-breasted blazer over a cashmere sweater and ample masculine pants.
