Barbara Bui’s main pre-fall motif was the check. It appeared in different scales, in bright red-and-blue or graphic black-and white combinations, on voluminous, wool knit capes over houndstooth sweaters and matching wool jacquard miniskirts. Tartan, too, was used to project Bui’s urban sexy rock sensibility on a tailored coat with biker-jacket leather sleeves, and a zipped coat with fur shoulders paired with cropped, flared pants. As a counterpoint to the checks, she worked a couple of monochrome blue silhouettes and a segment of evening tuxedo styles in black or white, all done with her beloved glam-rock touch of fringed tops and rhinestone trim details to spice things up.
