Luxury fashion house Bally appoints new artistic director

Bally, the Swiss luxury house, announced on Wednesday the appointment of a new artistic director. Simone Bellotti, whose role will be to rejuvenate the brand’s codes.


On Wednesday, luxury leather accessories house Bally announced the appointment of Simone Bellotti as Artistic Director. After sixteen years with Gucci, Bellotti joined the prestigious Swiss brand last October. Simone Bellotti has also held senior design positions at Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta and Gianfranco Ferré.


This promotion follows the unexpected departure of Rhuigi Villaseñor, who recently left his position as Artistic Director at Bally after spending just one year there. The JAB Holding group, to which Bally belongs, as well as the designer himself, said it was a “mutual decision“.


“Simone Bellotti’s eye is inhabited by a freedom of spirit and a passion for research. He draws inspiration from art, photography and music”, says a press release.
