Carl Franz Bally originally founded his footwear-originated company after facing the dilemma of having to buy shoes for his wife; it seems it was this troublesome task that evoked an enthusiasm within Bally and resulted in the creation of his label back in 1851.
By the 70s Bally had become a well respected name within the footwear industry and had numerous celebrities endorsing his range – even NASA chose to use his tailored shoes for their moon expedition.
Its fair to say that the quality and individuality of this distinguished brand is what you would expect to see in classic English brands – perhaps it’s the element of traditionalism that the brand and Switzerland themselves both carry.
History aside, this one hundred and sixty one year old label is still releasing a full range of attire and accessories, all of which are designed and constructed to the highest calibre. This Weekender Hatten-LG bag [shown below] is an archetypal example of exactly what Bally is all about.
Its minimalistic style radiates class yet it manages to avoid looking flash or over the top. It’s the subtle detailing, courtesy of the logo on the zip tag and internal zip pocket, which exposes the quality of bag that you are carrying.
You could undoubtedly utilise this bag for all occasions – whether on a business trip or simply holidaying with the family – so if you are looking for a versatile holdall, this bag will certainly deliver.
