The Split-Second Preview: Barbara Bui


The Fall ’13 womenswear collections draw to a close next week in Paris. Prior to the last shows, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Naturally, it’s a busy time for everyone—designers and fashion watchers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length previews at 140 characters or less. To view all of our Fall ’13 previews, click here.

WHO: Barbara Bui

WHERE: Paris

WHEN: Thursday, February 28

WHAT: “Light within black. I mixed 3 opposites—ruggedness, technicality & Baudelairean delicacy—all in black on black contrasting w/ brass & white.” —Barbara Bui. The designer sent us a Fall 2013 sketch, left.

    THe way she illustrated the design is very well done. She shows texture very well and it all flows. I like how she keeps the hair and facial features to a minimum. SOmething to aspire to!
