Inspired by Bally's long-standing heritage of shoemaking and design excellence, the 1851 hardware is our contemporary brand signature and celebrates the brand's founding year with interlocking "B" details.
"My work is an attempt to crystallize a sense of the ephemeral that is constantly present in daily life."
To honor this new house signature, Bally has collaborated with Italian artist Alessandro Piangiamore on a commissioned artwork, blending the artist's unique creative medium and process with the 1851 hardware and thematic inspirations from the Autumn/Winter 2020 collection.
Entitled "Set in Stone," Piangiamore's artwork crystallizes the ephemeral beauty of nature within textural concrete to create a harmonic synergy between the natural and the man-made. The 1851 hardware subtly features across the piece and is preserved in perpetuity, alongside flower petals, leaves and foliage.
