Bally – Swiss Shoes Since 1851

14 Mar - 11 Aug 2019 / Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, CH

Whether on the first ascent of Mount Everest or on the streets of Paris and London, Bally, founded in Switzerland, achieved worldwide fame with top-class shoes. The company is considered to have pioneered combining craftsmanship, industrial innovation and fashion design. The exhibition follows shoe production from the patronal corporate culture of the 19th century to the networked working world of today.
