The Berlin Fashion Diary: A Definition of an Urban Bally Classic

My dear travellers and fashionistas, how are you today? I hope you doing well and that this month has started in a good mood for you. When I was younger, I didn’t like September so much because we all know that school starts. On the other hand, I still love the beginning of September because then I celebrate my birthday.

On this day, around half past nine in the evening, one Marko was born. Thus begins my story that turns less than thirty years old today. Today I got up with a pain in my back and said to myself: “Well, Marko, good luck to us! We are getting old!”

Whether we want to admit it or not, we are all like little children when we celebrate a birthday. We look forward to gifts, whether they are small things or something more valuable, someone’s attention is always appreciated. Today, it is most difficult to get the most expensive gift from people – dedication and attention.

While on the one hand I think about aging, there are gifts to rejuvenate me and take me back to my childhood for a moment. It is a great pleasure for me when people in my environment remember my birthday, especially when these people do not have social networks that remind them of other people’s important dates, which means that you are important to someone and that is the best gift you can get from life.

Yesterday, I decided to make the photos of the gifts I got from fashion house Bally. I’m sure you’ve heard of this famous fashion brand that comes from Switzerland, and we all know that the Switzerland is more than a country of elegant and incredible clocks and interesting cuisine, but I would also add that they are quite fashion-friendly. In addition to exceptional precision, comfort and elegance, this incredible Swiss brand is adorned with the epithet – urban elegance.

The Bally brand was founded by Karl Franz Bally and his brother Fritz Bally in the basement of their family home in the town of Schonenverd, Switzerland. Their original products were elastic bands. During a business trip to Paris in 1849, Carl Franz wanted to buy his wife lace-up boots. Unfortunately, he was unable to remember the size his wife was wearing, he decided to buy that model of boots in all available sizes, knowing that one pair would surely be the right one. This is what I call the love!

During a visit to one Paris factory where boots were made, he noticed that each shoe had buttons with elastic bands similar to those produced by his family in Switzerland. Carl Franz got the idea to create something new, so he decided to expand his business to the production of footwear.

Together with his brother Fritz, Carl Franz hired designers to help them, and so they started hand-making shoes in the basement of his house.

The Bally company was founded in the basement of one family house in 1851, and only three years later the first factory was built, which was located in the center of the town. Unfortunately, in 1854, Karl’s brother Fritz Bally retired and left this job.

By the 1870s, the Bally brand was already recognized as a leader in the footwear industry. The company name changed to CF Bally and then to CF Bally & Sons when Karl handed over the business to his sons in 1892 and passed away a few years later. The fact is that Karl passed on his tireless creative and visionary pioneering spirit to his sons. Bally as a brand has grown and thrived by opening its stores in Geneva, Buenos Aires, Paris and London.

In the 1980s, Bally was also one of the first European luxury goods brands to open in post-reforms and opening borders to China. The brand has also expanded its range to include clothing, bags and leather goods for men and women. In the 1990s, Bally became a global brand, opening its stores in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Lebanon and Turkey.

I was inspired by this story and I am very pleased to have received gifts from this exceptional brand from Switzerland for my birthday. I hope that we will celebrate beautiful moments together for many years to come, and I hope that the situation will significantly improve after this pandemic caused by the COVID-19 situation.

How did you like my today’s birthday combination? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! Something new, something old and a unique balance is created.

Time does not pass, it continues…

Hi everyone, how are you today? September is perhaps the most boring month of the year because people are returning from vacation, and it is not also very lucky for the pupils, because the new school year begins. I did not particularly like this period in my life, but when all this goes on then realize that it was all the funniest period and that all these worries were the easiest because the world of adults is much different. I always had one very good reason to love September. The answer is simple – my birthday! It’s always easier for me to go to school because I knew that next day I would get gifts and then I’ll forget all my troubles in my school life.

 

 

We are now coming to that other most important topic – ageing and how to survive first crisis… To be understood, none of us like to be old and I’m sure that each of us wants to simply remain “frozen” in some year of life just to be refresh and young. Before, I was constantly wondering why the elderly people hide their years, and then I come to the age of 26, and I realize that everything has passed so fast. Today, I was really thinking about some of the things that I managed to accomplish so far.

I wish I could get up tomorrow to celebrate my 22nd birthday, but that’s impossible. I can make it easier for me, so instead of a candle in the shape of numbers, I simply put a small “pile” of candles on a cake and maybe it will be easier for me, unless I cause a fire in the house! 😀

I wanted to try it a couple of days ago when it was my mom’s birthday, but when we realized how many packages of candles we should buy, we decided that it was best to buy a cupcake and one small simple candle.

 

 

It’s still a couple of hours left to summarize my impressions and to make some good wish for this birthday. Every year I have the same wishes: happiness, health, and to fill my suitcase with memories from the journeys. This year was full of adventure. I managed to get into my “online” diary only the nicest thing the world can offer. Asia, Africa, Europe… Three continents that I visited this year, but my spirit wants to explore more, to go further. Perhaps by the next birthday I will visit other continents! “Everything is possible to those who believe” is the famous Jesus quote, which has helped me a lot.

 

 

I will make sure that I am going to celebrate this 26th birthday with a smile on my face and with great hope that this 26th year of my life will be the most successful year with a lot of new adventures. Pictures for this post were made in a city that certainly marked this year in my monotone blogging life – Milan. Milan is not only a cool and modern city in where everything is just too fashionable. There’s a lot more to do and see when you walk through those lovely streets, these are not just shops, it’s true artwork, it’s just a question of how your eye will recognize it.

 

 

Italy is a country where hedonism is preserved on its invisible throne, and all your senses will have only one simple task, which is to ENJOY! It’s an adventure you can not miss, a story that will have many sequels, nice things to remember. Rome, Milan, Venice, Naples… should I continue to enumerate? A country that you will always be happy to return again and again for another extra dose of excitement and an adventurous adrenaline that will make your entire journey more interesting.

Yes, that is Italy, it’s much more than the famous “Made in Italy” label. I honestly believe that the most beautiful dreams are tailored in the land of eternal classics. I could write to you much more, but I’m in hurry because I need to iron stuff which I will wear tomorrow for my special meeting with my Belgrade. Special rituals are involved in my life so I love to enjoy on the streets of Belgrade with an ice cream in my hands and of course as always with the smile on my face.

 

 

This post is a clear evidence that once in life for certain things it is necessary to believe that everything will be better and a lot of people claim that it has helped them a lot in some situations in life. That is the power of positive thinking, which has never left me for my 26 years.

Best,

Mr.M
