Milan: In their second season for Bally, designers Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz (formerly of Aquascutum) chose to honor the brand’s Swiss heritage with a chic twist on all things aprés ski.  True to the brand’s reputation, outerwear, leather accessories and shoes were highlights. Items like a fur-trimmed anorak and platform hiking boots exhibited a skillful balance between the rugged Alpine slopes and big-city luxury. Similarly, a geometric eyelet motif (on punched out leathers and in used as a photo-print) and an Edelweiss jacquard recolored in punchy hues paid homage to and modernized the traditional textiles of the region. While most of the hemlines skirted around mid-thigh, a pair of diaphanous broom skirts were a welcome reference to the long and languid silhouette that is so much a part of the designers’ own heritage.
