PARIS & DALLAS, May 13, 2010 / FW/ — Today’s women seek a more proactive stance with personal freedom foremost in their mind.

It is with this thought Barbara Bui revised male wardrobe with its characteristic “heavy” fabrics, sportive and practical style adapting the looks into feminine proportions and silhouettes.

Animal skin took center stage in this collection – bright blue leather pants, flared to the bottom, borrowed from the ski suit. Black aviator suits with shiny snakeskin make the female silhouette breathtaking.

Stand outs include a warm knee-length coat in tweed and leather with a luxurious fur collar; mini-skirt with wide pockets and a variety of shirts with intricate appliqués
