Barbara Bui's meticulously tailored jackets and curvaceous blazers might bring in the crowds, but the perfect-fitting pants have got her loyal clientele hooked. Clean, classic and timeless, Bui's effortlessly cool pieces can be worn season after season—lucky, since with four-figure price tags for a linen jacket or a silk dress, Bui's fashions are as much investment as pleasure. Minimalist, ultrachic, and borderline-intimidating, the boutique features all of the designer's lines.
