The Barena philosophy derives from a genuine passion for the rediscovery of the Venetian tradition, and is inspired by the spirit of research that pervades you when you visit the islands of the Venice Lagoon interacting with such fascinating cultures and lifestyles.
The Barena collection is in fact inspired by the peculiar dress code created and used by the people who lived in these areas.
Many of the garments in the collection are the reinterpretation of unique pieces found in museums, antique markets or books that portray old images.
