Barbara Bui Pre-Fall 2013 Collection

Barbara Bui has always been one of my favourite fashion designers. With this pre-fall 2013 collection, she has just made me love her/her designs even more. Black, gold and beige are three main colors in this collection. Still the same familiar elegant yet so chic elements from Barbara. I love the deep cut which shows such a strong careful handmade tailored feature. This seems to be still on trend next season and might be even bigger, greater than last Fall. Minimalism is surely a big thing without a doubt. Less is more which will be right for colors/patterns but layering would be remained. Menswear features are still being applied quite a lot but in a more elegant form, rather than the 80s' tomboyish style. The printing pattern which looks like over-laced surface is heavily graphic/illustrated. This also reminds me of beautiful illustration works done by Rob Ryan. (*little fact: I'm in the same class with his daughter who is also brilliant, especially at making zines!).

I know I haven't been updating for quite a while but I hope I'll get back on track soon. Lots of things have been happening lately, mostly fun/good things. Looking forward to busy yet exciting days ahead.

Happy New Year 2013

To be honest, winter is not really my favourite season of the year. However, I love the idea of layering and being a bit messy/ too much/ over the top. And winter is probably the only time I could actually do this. Even though sometimes I feel like it shouldn't be this cold so I could wear less and still feel nice, I guess winter has its own charm. All I have to do is to have fun with it, I mean, both layering and winter. And as you see, this is the first post of 2013! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Let's wish this shall be the best year so far for everyone! Health, luck and happiness for us all. Exactly one more week til I have to hand in my portfolio, so I'll try to pay real good time on it now. Wish me luck. Cheers!
