Ballin, the Italian shoe specialist, has launched a complete handbag collection for autumn/winter 2016/17. The collection revolves around the two themes of “Fall in nature” and “Urban.” The rural inspired collection includes the Amal Bag line, dedicated to George Clooney's wife, Amal, while the Urban models recall elements from the urban environment. Ballin has 15 flagship stores in Russia and boutiques in Venice, Milan and in Kazakhstan, Poland and Dubai. The brand also has monobrand stores in China, where it has recently opened a new flagship store in Hangzhou, which adds to the ones in Bejing and Hong Kong. It is present in the Middle East through its partnership with Chalhoub Group.
