Bally selects an eclectic group of models to showcase an equally eclectic collection.
Bally’s FW16 collection proves that the brand isn’t one to skimp on their influences or their resources. For this collection Bally has embraced the looks of the teddy boy and rocker along with a healthy dose of opulent colour. The collection features every colour under the sun and a bundle of different patterns including check, paisley and some vintage style prints, although they all remain tastefully muted, no neons to be seen here. The clothes and cuts themselves are simple, no elongation or crazy proportions, but it’s the strong colours and fabrics that make this collection so rich. In particular a turquoise puffer jacket paired with a mustard turtleneck and brown suit makes a particularly striking ensemble.
Bally have selected their models to make a group as eclectic as the collection itself for their AW16 advertising campaign, featuring newcomers Ina Maribo Jensen and seasoned model Wang Chenming front and center of the promos. Bally’s choice of photographer, newcomer Jack Davison was explained by design director, Pablo Cappola. Cappola stated that “What drew me to Jack’s work was his ability to capture intimacy in his portraits, there is real emotion there. For the AW ’16 campaign, I wanted to take a new approach [a diverse cast of multiple models] by highlighting the personality of a group.”
