Barena Venezia, a small family-run business, has significantly influenced the way men and women dress over the past 27 years. Even before the terms “studied carelessness” and “soft tailoring” became go-to terms for fashion journalists, Barena was showing men how to dress casually with class, using sartorial fabrics for sporty workwear-inspired clothes. Barena maintains the fabric-first ethos it was founded on, each collection, whether for men or women, is built from the ground up, starting with the search for interesting materials, often using original early 20th century patterns from the brand’s now extensive archives.
