Where the runway meets the street

Japanese label Bal presents Autumn/Winter 2012. The theme ‘Winter Morning’, heavily influenced by classic American work and casual wear (checks, 50s shirts, thermal vests), the collection has enough offbeat touches to keep the range fresh, case in point the above print hoodie and embroidered jacket. Plenty of decent knitwear and a nice line in heavy outerwear make this a label to watch closely. (ES)
