Jacquard Print Kicks

Barbara Bui Sneakers Make a Splash

— January 18, 2013 — Fashion
Barbara Bui sneakers are slick and chic. Her latest release, the ‘Jacquard,’ kicks are full of pizazz and decorative detail. These lovely flashy sneakers pack a lot of color and fuse different textures. The main body of the shoe is a thick, rich-hued jacquard print and the heels show a horizontal stripe of metallic silver.

The color-blocked contrast is vibrant and makes the shoes have impact when you strut down the street. These funky shoes also boast intricate details, including a ribbed high-rise tongue, a leather horizontal closure with pegs, beige suede front toes and matching laces.

This flirty footwear is kooky, cool and cohesively binds unconventional materials. Barbara Bui sneakers are flashy, fun and meant to be seen.
Trend Themes
1. Textured Sneakers - The trend of using unconventional materials and colors for sneaker design opens up opportunities for innovative variations in all types of footwear products.

3. Intricate Details - Adding intricate and unique details to footwear designs provides an opportunity for companies to differentiate their products and create a strong brand identity.
Industry Implications

2. Fashion Retail - Sneakers that feature unconventional materials and textures could be marketed to fashion-forward consumers, changing the way people view sneaker design and reshaping the industry.
3. Textile Production - Trends in shoe design such as Jacquard print sneakers with metallic accents could be translated into new fabric designs, paving the way for more options for textile manufacturers and innovative partnerships with shoe companies.
