The name Bally has been synonymous with venerable Swiss shoemaking since brothers Carl Franz and Fritz Bally established their iconic company in 1851. Exceptional quality is one of Bally’s key principles, as exemplified by its iconic Scribe shoe: a handcrafted men’s oxford with a 200-step production process. Footwear isn’t Bally’s only bag: Its collections of refined ready-to-wear clothing and luxurious accessories have helped put it on the apparel map as well. Since taking over Bally's menswear and womenswear lines in 2010, creative directors Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz have imbued the apparel brand with what Herz calls "a contemporary heritage" — a blend of modernism and classic design. Bally's chic, vintage-inspired belts, gloves, hats and travel bags — not to mention those delicious shoes and boots — top off your outfits with timeless glamour.
