Paris Fall 2013: Barbara Bui

By  |  0 Comments

(PARIS) Barbara Bui 
Proportions, proportions, proportions. Designers have been playing around with it throughout the Fall shows. At Barbara Bui, it was all about those ’60-apropos, cropped and flared trou. One reason the look appeals? It’s a trend we haven’t been too overloaded with already. Bui also played around with the midriff (as did Guy Laroche), dabbling with a cropped dickie avec elastic detailing, say, or a cropped black zippered shirt with white cuffs and a short lacey shirt dress worn under a cape. Sexy, but a bit froid for Fall, non? We doubt that will stop the style obsessed from giving it a go. A black leather button down paired with skinny black leather pants contrasted with a chic white cape coat (which conveniently had both armholes and sleeves!). A black leather peacoat worn over knee-high black leather boots gave off a sense of edgy elegance. Also, an oversized shiny latex-looking leather coat was a hit. Bui’s street savvy, sure, but sophisticated devotees alike will likely catch the covet bug on this spate of looks.
