Bally unveils its Spring/Summer 2023 campaign featuring Creative Director Rhuigi Villaseñor’s debut collection. Shot by photographer Harley Weir, and styled by Emmanuelle Alt, the campaign is an evocative and fresh play on his vision of modern luxury, which Villaseñor says he expressed through “a mix of bold sophistication and sensuality”.
The collection also explores the “power of nature”, which has always been intrinsic to Bally. Captured in the natural elements overlooking a windswept, rocky coastline, models are the protagonists of the scene, projecting the innate sense of confidence imbued in the collection.
Saturated blue skies and the light and shade of water are used to amplify metallic leathers, gold-toned Bally emblem hardware, washed denim and cutaway forms. The result is a dichotomy between sophisticated silhouettes with rich materials such as velvet and snake-printed leather against a rugged terrain as a backdrop. The introduction of jewelry, a new category for Bally, underlines the lifestyle energy curated by Villaseñor.
