Back in October, Barbara Bui came in for the spring and summer 2016 styles with a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll, a little bit of sexy, and a little bit of boyish designs for a rather intriguing collection. Today, she comes on to the Paris Fashion Week stage with some rather similar features, made specifically to match with the fall and winter, and perhaps hinting that 2017 will be all about colors. We have sea greens and amethyst purples, lots of black and lots of plaid in red and black and white features.
We see transparency and shiny body hugging pants, mini hems to the skirts and boots that come over to the knees in the Barbara Bui fall/winter 2016-2017 collection. We have strappy sandals in the mix, along with coats that feature slits for carrying on back with free arms, as well as the thick sleeves for warding off the cold. There are asymmetrical skirts and some pretty fringes, plaid suits with pants and blazers, as well as plaid voluminous sleeve jackets over leather miniskirts.
We also see some way-too-thin models on the set that rather ruin some of the pieces. While many designers have opted for fit and slim ladies, Barbara Bui still goes for the anorexic. Then again, wasn’t that now illegal in France? Some of these ladies look to have not the right count for their BMIs. Then again, we so see some women on set with some strong thighs and stronger cores, balancing out the looks portrayed.
At first glance, the colors that dominate are a sea green, the stark amethyst color, the red on the plaid that looks slightly washed out, and the black. While small bits of yellow and white appear, the ladies are generally clad in those four hues. The Scottish checkered look is what intrigues us most, appearing on pants, and jackets, skirts and suits, sets and separates, all made lovingly by Barbara Bui for the fall and winter shows presented on the Paris Fashion Week runway.
Barbara Bui is an up and coming star in the fashion industry herself, newly gaining speed and a good fan base within that realm. She has a bright future before her and it appears that Barbara Bui will definitely become a household name to shop from soon enough. Now, we might just opt for those lovely boots, especially in the artificially colored suede designs that reach up to and encompass the knees.
In the meantime, the Barbara Bui ladies have some darling hairstyles that we so very much want to emulate, from the side sweeps of the bangs to the naturally waving tresses, the short boyish knockoff and the straight fringes in platinum blonde hair, these are only a few of the top looks to choose from. Just know that even the laziest of us who have long hair we love to let loose and walk out with some calming formula in there only, nature taking care of the look itself.
