Streetwear, hip-hop and Asian motifs were elements worked into Barbara Bui’s cool resort collection. She focused on lightweight technical fabrics such as lacquered parachute silk for a hooded top that could also be worn as a dress, and a crinkled satin nylon for an oversize golden yellow trenchcoat. Even the tailored pieces were given an activewear touch: Sharp jackets were worked in a 3-D nylon knit fabric, some worn with Indonesian wrapped pants. Prints were inspired by the Dong tribes in southern China, including an opulent tiger motif and a painterly brushstroked floral.
