We all know that the first real sign of winter’s arrival is when there’s a shearling cowboy hat on the market. With this in mind, Rhuigi Villaseñor, creative director of Bally, has officially just launched winter with his first capsule for the house: Bally Curling.

Following his debut collection in the form of Bally Spring/Summer 2023, which showed in Milan earlier this year, Villaseñor keeps his foot on the gas for winter. Bally Curling finds its inspiration in the niche sport of curling which arrived in Switzerland in the late 19th century. The sport, which can be described as a giant game of boules on ice, is a favorite winter pastime in Switzerland, and it just so happens that the Bally curling boot is an icon of the sport, even outfitting the Swiss Olympic team in 1956.

Building on this typically Swiss tradition, Villaseñor stamps the Bally Curling capsule with his own distinctive Americana codes. Shearling meets cowboy hats while winter boots are treated to American-West embroidery. Beyond these visual tentpoles, though, the collection is based on Bally’s long traditions of refinement and utility, all informed by cold climates. Cashmere and merino wool sweaters perfectly exemplify this trusty base.

Below, we’ve picked out our favorite pieces from the Bally Curling capsule collection.
