The clothing, likewise, had a spare sensibility—precise but still sensual. Streamlined outerwear married natural linen canvas to bonded leather in black or caramel, which was also used for sleek apron-style, to-the-floor evening dresses. The duo's take on the designer sweatshirt, shown in off-white and color-blocked shades of red, yellow, and green, was slightly shrunken, almost waxy. Color also came through in easy, bare cotton day dresses with a tie-dye-style print. This was a small, tightly edited ready-to-wear collection destined only for the company's shops, but it had an of-the-moment sportif minimalism that could make Bally stores busier places next spring.
