BARBARA BUI

The decade that was:
High: “A look that is less retro, more contemporary, less backward-looking, more modern.”

Low: “Too much exaggerated means/power.”

Top trends: “The comeback of the rock ’n’ roll spirit. I have been working on it for 20 years. The trend has now met my tastes.”

Favorite muse: “Bianca Jagger. A mix of innate elegance and rock 
attitude.”

The decade to come:
New muses: “Maybe a woman of mixed race. Fashion needs to talk 
to women irrespective of race.”

Next fashion capital: “Paris. It will always be a fashion capital because it is open to stylists from all over the world.”

Styles to avoid: “Sadness and that Quaker austerity. In a crisis period, it is dangerous to go back to that.”

Hoping to see: “Sensitivity, humanism.”
