Looking for a collection that is smart, filled with luxury, wearable from head to toe, slightly "geeky" (in the coolest way possible), and can be pulled off with confidence whether you are 22 or 62? You are going to be very well served with Pablo Coppola's presentation for Bally Fall 2015.
Film director Wes Anderson is often a point of reference for designers whether they state it or not, but Coppola specifically noted that the famed directors classic, "The Royal Tenenbaums" was on his mind for Fall '15. You can see this throughout the presentation, but perhaps most notably in a look featuring a beautiful DB, khaki suit with shrunken pants styled with a beanie, tortoise shades, classic Bally low top sneakers, and fur. It is perfection, and screaming for a Wilson brother to put it on. From look to look, there isn't a piece out of place, and you'll surely covet most. Particularly a yellow ostrich Mac. Which brings you to the strong luxe statement made through every fabric that should be included in a presentation from such a venerable brand, including leathers, python, fur, angora and mohair. It's all there, and done to perfection.
Had I the means, the entire presentation would find its way into my closet. Coppola is transforming the Swiss brand beyond the images of our father's and grandfather's shoes, not to mention a decade of overuse of the red and white Trainspotting stripe, into a serious, fashion-forward menswear / lifestyle contender.
