Though the brand has traditionally drawn inspiration from technical sportswear designs, the Spring/Summer 2014 collection from BAL seems to harbor a distinctive worldly, artistic attitude. From crisp waffle knit fisherman’s sweaters to the slick, dapper cuts of pastel-hued trousers, this offering from the brand is assertive, yet airy. Boxy patterns are reiterated throughout the collection, from bold checker boxes to more intricate geometrical motifs that echo stucco patterns in ancient architecture. Pale, rustic colors meet vibrant greens, blues and whites in the color palette, altogether making for a unique offering from BAL. Pick up these pieces at select retailers in the coming weeks.
