Opening its doors inside the high-end mall August 2, the Swiss luxury brand joins fellow international brands such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Dior, and Giorgio Armani.

The launch of Bally’s brick and mortar store comes after twelve months worth of talks with Reliance Brands, part of Reliance Retail and the Reliance Group.

Founded in 1851 in Switzerland, Bally rose to fame in 1890 for inventing the Zurich pump, before launching its ready-to-wear and accessories lines in 1976.
