Cycling in all its forms was the inspiration behind the Bally Men’s spring/summer 2014 collection. The looks ride round three distinct themes of the road: the city biker, the cross-country, and the racer. These three moods created a series of sophisticated, yet functional pieces that take you from work to weekend without a second thought.
The collection was filled with water-resistant “techno-suede” used on a series of jackets, capes, sweatshirts, drawstring trousers, and weekender bags.
The Bally “Flex Tech” Shoes were also introduced, constructed to allow for a hollowed out foot bed fitted with deerskin for maximum flexibility, while still retaining shape.
The color palette represents sights and sensations experienced while cycling in the Tour de Suisse. Shades include asphalt grey, racing red, sprint blue with off-white, hill green, mountain mud, and buff sand.
A standout piece of the collection was the Bally travel jacket. A soft, ultra-lightweight jacket created in techno suede, the jacket can be packed and unpacked without creasing.
