The retro sneakers are the core of the SS18 collection – for both men’s and women’s. These four sneakers are the birthplace of inspiration that led to the creation of a narrative that authentically forms the DNA of this collection and the Bally brand. Bringing back Bally’s best sneaker styles over the past decades, the collection includes four replications of its most successful lace ups, from hip-hop era classics to smashing tennis shoes and sporty runners.

The vintage design, function and feel, sparks nostalgia to the Bally patrons back in the days, as much as it captures the attention of the younger generation.

These sneakers take you back in the 80’s fluid dance moves and effortless hiphop beats. It is reminiscent of the time when everyone just wants to be in a Bally sneakers.

Ode to 70’s: Bally SS18

When we say we history repeats itself, we meant it literally.

Following our generation’s obsession with everything retro qnd vintage, here we see Bally’s SS18 collection in full 70’s glory – and we’re in love!

This season, Bally has taken its decades of legacy from history books to the racks. The look and feel of the visuals are taken from Bally’s 1908 showroom in Kursaal, rebuilt in full glory for the vintage-thirsty generation of today.

The Look

The muted colors popping from neutral bases gives us an intense  style satisfaction. The soft palettes are balanced out with edgy feel-good sporty aesthetic.

The Textures

Adding to the flavour are the textures. Bally didn’t fall short in giving us variety, from curduroys, cagoules, oversized trench, to puffa jackets.

The silhouettes are rather simple, yet striking. The tucking and layering added a classic twist to the flavorful collection.

We Believe: Bershka SS18

This year, Bershka celebrates the artists, the free spirits, the era definers; the self-expressors; the boundary pushers; and the rule breakers who defy expectations.

Bershka’s 2018 Spring/Summer presentation is all about making music, moments, and memories. 

Bershka travelled to London’s coolest boroughs and beyond to find the up-and-comers: the new talent shaping the future of culture in the UK. The artists. Style breakers. Rhymers. Dancers. Thought provokers. The darers.

13 movers and shakers join together to tell a story of uniqueness, of self-expression. 

Through their art, music, style, and social influence they are speaking up, shouting out, sparking passion, prompting others to do the same. They are taking cues from those who inspire them, and turning their inspiration into new forms of creativity. And by igniting their generation, they are shaping the future.

Bershka believes in the power of self-expression. Sure, it’s a way to set trends. But it’s also a way to influence what happens next in the world. 

The future belongs to those who dare. To them – and to all young-minded people – Bershka says: We believe in you.

–Benji, Dancer

“We believe people should have the right to love whoever they want.”
