BARBARA BUI SPRING SUMMER 2016

French designer Barbara Bui took inspiration from Bianca Jagger for her Spring/Summer 2016 collection. She describes it as “a surprising blend of elegance, provocation, sensuality and a rock attitude”.

Bianca Jagger was a socialite and model who rose to fame in the 80’s. Married to Rolling Stone Mick Jagger, Bianca’s style was a mix of rock and glam, with a touch of the exotic.

Barbara Bui’s collection reminded me of a modern squaw when I first saw it: fringing in leather, suede and “night owl” embroidery. Glamorous long mesh dresses that reveal the back and legs. Extremely feminine lightweight dresses with high slits, worn over bikinis. Rock chic suits worn next to the skin or wide trousers worn with bras. Rock forever, pure and strong.

Accessories, belts, shoulder harnesses and saddlebags with interwoven lacing and tassels are the signature of the South American « caballero ». sandals with «tube» heels create a determined silhouette. Sexy toes reveal the foot, a very «couture» drapé on the instep. The artisanal style of the « caballero » belts is echoed by ankle bracelets.
