Barena are a brand who have put their roots down in Italian culture, building their philosophy around a genuine desire to rediscover Venetian tradition, inspired by the spirit of research that pervades one when visiting the Venetian lagoons. Characterised by the use and reinterpretation of high quality natural textiles, the collections look to the unique styles and dress codes of the people of Venice, often taking inspiration from past eras. With specific focus given to construction details, each garment is unique in its simplicity. Recently, Contemporary Standard visited the Barena atelier to see what constituted their rich brand heritage. Check out some of their photos above.
