Born of mixed origin in Paris, Barbara Bui imbued her designs with a sense of duality and openness towards different cultures. Her love of beauty and aesthetics permeated through her work and she showcased her eponymous line in 1987 – initially using only leather, skins and suede, before branching out into other materials as her collections gained momentum. Her pieces reflect the intrinsic balance between a woman’s strength and sensitivity while exploring the blend between masculine and feminine codes. Outside of Paris Barbara Bui has opened boutiques in the cities of Milan, Tokyo and New York.
Barbara Bui’s figure-flattering designs and playful use of asymmetry has made her the go-to designer of A-List celebrities such as Beyonce, Emma Stone and Gwyneth Paltrow. Bui’s black flared stretch dress is the perfect outfit for any day or night event, accentuating a woman’s natural hourglass and striking the perfect balance between modernity and elegance. Simply add wedges for a day look or heel for an evening ensemble.
