BARBARA BUI FALL WINTER 2016 the Key Pieces
Black PVC pants are back time to suck it in ladies and get punk rock with BARBARA BUI FALL WINTER 2016 collection. BARBARA BUI is a french designer who keeps surprising us with her collections. For her FALL WINTER 2016 collection, the designer sent down the runway ,shiny, black, tighter-than-leather trousers that stomped past their roomy (by comparison) leather counterparts topstitched in a houndstooth pattern and bastard cousin, the reverse-skort—which has to be Bui’s most peculiar new garment, appearing to be a floor-length skirt when viewed from behind, and wide-leg trousers from the front.
The new skorts—are a key piece from the collection. The designer went sexy and a little Italian sassy for fall. . There were kelly green ponyskin shirtdresses, too; and skinny bright tartan suiting with shiny black patent accents; and a smattering of quite good shearling jackets, the exterior black leather and the lining done in emerald. One shearling-lined mink coat with a red and black intarsia houndstooth pattern on the outside was an exercise in luxuriousness, very punk rock meets ghetto fabulous. I predict that this will be in the wardrobe of Cookie from Empire when she has to make an apperance in the hoods of Brooklyn to do business call it her “lumberjack-chic”attire”
Capes ruled too, and the trend is not going anywhere this fall. The collection gave us beaded numbers with a gilded phoenix; some were fringed in a trompe l’oeil manner to look like a different type of ensemble from a distance; some tartan coats featured slits just so that they might be worn as capes. A leather jacket basket-woven in a tartan pattern was unraveled so that the fringe was thick and layered at the hem, like a cheerleader’s pompom, while a leather car coat had pony-hair panels in an allover houndstooth print which gave the collection that English punk vibe.
The designer also cast the collection well, the big girls came out. They were lean and mean ready to hit the streets like a warrior.
