Barbara Bui Fall 2009PARIS, Jul 23, 2009 / FW/ — Get ready to shatter your preconception of luxury, says Barbara Bui. And it’s not ‘affordable luxury’ either, the much maligned phrase of the Great Recession. Rather, its LAID-BACK luxury as the quintessential French designer put a modern twist on mink and denim.

Yes, you got it right, mink and denim. Keeping the silhouette simple, sexy and super modern, denim becomes ultra chic as it is matched with mix.

“Inside out” mink; traditional fur is reinvented for Fall 2009 with the inside out concept. Get set to welcome a new fashion classic.

Barbara Bui denim: Think precise cuts combined with that authentic denim vibe.

Luxe égoïste: The mink is not showy but subtle. Nurturing, sensual and super light, it is a welcome accomplice for any urban stylista who knows the importance of being a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and chic.

“The mink is a fresh approach to this season’s desire for laid back luxury: wearing magnificent fabrics everyday combined with must-have items, like denim jeans…” comments Barbara Bui.

The allure of denim: Due to their unparalleled quality of cut and perfect fit, Barbara Bui trousers have become every season must-have. The quality of the cut is ideal for denim as it is designed to fit and flatter.

A pioneer of stretch denim, Barbara Bui punctuates her line with must-haves. The star piece is a pair of dark slim jeans in supple canvas, decorated with gold-plated rivets.

“I love that jeans can be sexy and elegant – and that they can be worn from day to night,” says Barbara Bui.
