Effortless lux French style is abound in Parisian designer Barbara Bui’s summer collection. Among the structured and romantic pieces is her take on the gladiator shoes so popular this year. The braided pump by Barbara Bui is sexy and refined. I love the braided ankle strap and cutouts. In with the stacked heels and out with the pencil heels. This is a must have for your summer wardrobe. This shoe would be very chic with a brightly colored knee-length eyelet dress in white or notice me yellow. For the summer rock and roll concert goers, colored cigarette jeans and a flowy top will also compliment these shoes perfectly.
