PARIS, Dec 13, 2010 / FW/ — Shorts and miniskirts have never gone out of style and come spring 2011, they are back in full force.

French designer Barbara Bui proposes them in refreshing khaki and functional black. Yet, color is only half of the story. Catering to the metro girl, Barbara Bui also gives these wardrobe staples a neo safari look that is expected to be one of the hottest styles in spring.
