Barbara Bui

Born in Paris to a Vietnamese father and a French mother, Barbara Bui first entered the world of fashion when she opened a studio-boutique in Paris circa 1983. Her designs evoke a laid-back elegance - a mix of rock energy and ultra-feminine sensitivity. Long lines and sensual silhouettes, incisive cuts and volumes without concession combine with luxurious silks, fur and leather, to shake up preconceptions of elegance.
