Bally Multi Zip HoboBally isn’t a brand that we often mention here. Sure, they make nice handbags. But so do a lot of people, and in the past, I’ve had a hard time finding Bally handbags that I have something to say about either way. Sometimes ugliness isn’t the worst sin; sometimes, it’s worse to be utterly unremarkable.

What isn’t ugly or unremarkable, though, is the Bally Multi Zip Hobo. In fact, this bag is quite well-done and executed nicely. We’ve seen plenty of bags over the past few months that use zippers as a decorative feature instead of just a functional attribute of necessity. The idea is particularly brilliant – not only is it visually stimulating, but it’s a fun play on the expected structure and construction of a handbag and the role that all the parts play. This Bally hobo pulls it off in a particularly sophisticated way – smooth, rich-looking strips of black leather separated by industrial silver zippers. Perfect. Buy through Luisa Via Roma for $1774.

    beautiful! now if they would just take $500 off the price, it would actually be affordable.

    Who would have thought? It’s quite a find!

    I love it when a design house known for something else (perfrume (Ungaro), shoes (Jimmy Choo), or jewelry (Cartier)) pulls out a surprisingly sharp purse. But this one it doesn’t have me jumping out of my chair to buy it.

    It’s nice, but it doesn’t wow me. In fact it kinda reminds me of a black croissant shape heh

    Its nice to see Bally making a break from their structured conservative style for a change. I like the bag but Bally should start realizing that they are Bally not Balenciaga and charge accordingly.
