PFW: BARBARA BUI Fall Winter 2022/23

After collaborating with director Rosalie Charrier last season, Barbara Bui decided to pursue her artistic film writing with choreographer, dancer, and director Blanca Li. For AW 22/23, the two artists united their vision to create a joyous film engulfed by the bright colours of the collection.

The collection was inspired by the seventies and the nineties fashion, and it fuses chic couture spirit with oversized volumes, and pronounced shoulders. For the session designer playfully switches between masculine and feminine, structure and movement, sharp lines and street style comfort.

We had our own walkthrough with the designer where she tells us about the collection. We both love metallic, rock and roll with Parisienne inspired Hollywood Glam.

The tailoring is bursting with hyper-femininity, perfectly fitted jackets worn over tie neck blouses, pants transformed into pleated Bermuda shorts, extended by square toe boots. Sleeveless parkas with undulating quilting, worn over suits, breathe new life into the look in a single stroke. The looks are brought to life by a gentle orange glow. An intense colorama that oscillates between cream and tan tones, shades of red and beige, as if ignited by a golden glimmer. Deep brown, vague and jarring, flashed with ultraviolet rays. Really bright black, as if polished, displayed on the tapered silhouettes, on leggings finished with stilettos. Electric blue makes an unexpected appearance in the form of an oversized puffer jacket. Ivory blends into ebony in blurred print, evoking animal motifs and textures of bark. Applied to pleats, the design becomes yet more elusive, pixelated, almost evanescent. It adorns ultra-chic blouses worn with flared pants, with nineties accents. The look is poised on a knife-edge. The style is striking, with straight, frontal lines. The movement is sharp, as if captured in action.” – from Barbara Bui
