I didn't know Bally had a makeover until last week when hubby practically dragged me inside a store in ION, Orchard. I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of pieces that I like. I don't know where I was when Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler took over Brian Atwood's reign as Creative Director of the Swiss brand, but they sure have done a damn great job so far.

And the Bally piece that got me to write this entry is this.
Bally Pina Tote. I want. It also comes in a smaller size (but not in this perfect combination!).
Most of the pieces are reminiscent of Phoebe Philo's for Celine, which is probably why I like them. It's still, nonetheless, refreshing to see the brand going the architectural, minimalist, contemporary route. At least now, I don't just associate it with my mum's shoes circa 1980.
In other news, our first ever blog giveaway has ended and tabulation should begin soon! I'm just waiting for my little assistant to wake up. Big thanks to all who joined!
