The Barbara Bui boutique at South Coast Plaza.
Barbara Bui, the luxe French designer who already has a store on Rodeo Drive, recently opened her third American boutique in Orange County’s South Coast Plaza shopping center. The new store features tall ceilings with a black-and-white motif throughout, showcasing Bui’s signature styles in ready-to-wear clothing, bags, and shoes, as well as other accessories. The Barbara Bui boutique marks the most recent addition to the luxury shopping destination; it joins the likes of Gucci, Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Hermès, and many more.
Bui’s been making waves in the luxury market for her combination of femininity and hard edges. Her spring and summer 2013 collections feature an array of leather looks, both in bright colors and black, as well as tops that play with shapes but are chic enough to wear from the office to a night on the town. Meanwhile, her accessories are equally covetable, including leather handbags with Bui’s signature metal detailing, as well as scarves, belts, and bracelets in unique materials like python and crocodile. 3333 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, 714-641-3770
