Moving right along... If you're among my instagram followers (as you should be), you must have seen that i took a little field trip to the Bally of Switzerland headquarters last week. I was invited to tour the showroom to preview some of their beautiful, luxurious fall pieces. It certainly did not disappoint -- the Swiss brand is masterful in crafting understated, refined leather goods and a true lesson in elegance. I spotted so many items that would fit in seamlessly with my downtown wardrobe, which brings me to the following conclusion: Bally is one of those labels that immaculately crosses the very divisive line drawn between two extremely different worlds-- the ladies who lunch uptown and young art galleristas and free spirits gallivanting the more urban city parts.
I fell head over heels for their Duffy bag (right below): the petite square, simple shape feels ideally fresh. What i love about it most is that it feels both classic and current -- the perfect marriage, in my humble opinion. And that leather is completely irreproachable. I meannnn.
Some other of my favorite accessories for fall/winter 2013-2014:
Completely obsessed with this men's backpack weekender called the Everest Elison (first below)
I made away with one of the following ponchos -- can you guess which one i went for?? Orange or cream?
You can see the entire fall/winter 13-14 collection right here. Do you guys have any favorites??
And last but not least, a HUGE thanks to Bally for having me!
