>> Not a week after Bally confirmed that creative director Brian Atwood has shown his final collection for the label and longterm designers Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler resigned from Aquascutum, word comes that Herz and Fidler are expected to be take over creative directorship at Bally.
A Bally representative did not respond to requests for comment, but Fashion Week Daily cites sources saying that the decision came from Bally management's desire to focus more on ready-to-wear; Atwood's ready-to-wear allegedly didn't sell as well as accessories for the brand. Herz and Fidler are finishing up at Aquascutum, but will supposedly present their first Bally collection in Milan for Spring 2011.
