Fashion and style icon, actor, and artist Adrien Brody will showcase his design skills as he hops behind the camera and designs a series of capsules for fashion house Bally.
The collection will feature several ready-to-wear items, as well as shoes, bags, and other accessories, all designed with support from Bally’s Creative Studio. The collection will celebrate Brody’s passion for travel while honouring the brand’s rich history and tradition. The actor-turned-designer will blend his artistic flair with his deep appreciation for refined goods.
“As an artist, I am extremely excited to explore a new form of creative expression,” Brody said. “I am honoured to partner with Bally in this special collaboration, allowing me to channel my creative energy in a new way. In my work, I have spent a lifetime on the road, inhabiting new lives in unusual places. Travelling and exploration have been a constant theme and great inspiration for me and will guide the narrative as I create capsules that capture and distils the beauty of a journey.”
This is not the first time that Bally will link up with an artist to create a capsule. The brand, through its Creative Studio, has long been inviting creatives, from architects and illustrators, to musicians and other artists, to work alongside the brand and create new and exciting capsule collections. These artists add their artistic flair while rendering their interpretation of the house’s codes in their collections.
“Since the early 20th century, Bally has partnered with the world’s leading creative talent, from illustrators to architects, musicians, and artists,” said Nicolas Girotto, CEO of Bally. “With that in mind, I am honoured to announce this special partnership with Adrien, who has a unique style and creative vision. I’ve always admired his work on screen and in the studio and am excited to see his interpretation of Bally’s artistic heritage through his unique, multicultural, and sophisticated lens.”
The artist and actor will be working on the collection which will be available through Bally’s site and select stores and multi-brand retailers worldwide.
