Paris Fall 2013: Barbara Bui
FirstView View Gallery
(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.
