Fashion: There's still fire in the Bally

Some would say that fashion is a fickle mistress, so you don't get to celebrate 160 years in the business without knowing how to give your customers what they want. Enter Bally, purveyor of chic accessories to generations of the stealthily wealthy, which has launched a capsule collection to celebrate its landmark birthday. Bally-Rina, a refined selection of ballet flats and tote bags, is touched with whimsy while still providing the fit and comfort associated with the brand. All the shoes and bags are £175 and are available from bally.com
