Olympic Sprint

In just a few weeks,the biggest international sporting event of the year will roll out. Matching the mood of the season is Swiss label Bally,which has introduced Olympics-inspired designs in women’s sneakers and totes. Creatively styled,the red stitched Athena high-top sneakers feature back zips that reveal a ‘Bally-rina’ whimsically waving a gymnastics ribbon in the Olympic colours. The imagery looks recreated on the Hanoe fabric tote as well. Finished with soft leather handles,the Hanoe also showcases Bally’s iconic style through the subtle inclusion of the signature red-and-white stripe on the handles.
