Bally’s latest collection is an ode to mountaineering — of the luxe sort — with silhouettes and fabrics inspired by Sir Edmund Hillary who, with his Nepalese Sherpa, was the first climber to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The brand’s creative directors, Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz, offered up water-repellent suede jackets with cashmere linings — some inspired by the blouson style that Hillary wore for his ascent — ultra-chunky hand knit cashmere sweaters, and leather mittens and hats covered or trimmed with shaggy marmot fur. The collection also features lightweight but durable deerskin for bomber jackets, shoes, and bags. Other looks include a down-filled parka made from weathered loden leather, and another one lined with resin-coated storm cotton. Both have hoods trimmed in detachable marmot fur.
