as we explore the line's Venetian roots, its
ethos and the inspiration behind the
FW20 collection.

This photo from the past are the Inspiration for FW20. Workers are portrayed in Barena, the Venetian lagoon area between the mainland and the sea

Rooted in tradition, Barena
continues to pay homage to
Venezia and to the rural
lands of Veneto, the places
they call home.

High quality materials based on classical heritage, modernized for functional, daily use. A mixed of stylistic trends such as tailoring, activewear, utilitarian wear, workwear and loungewear are re-styled in a modern way to give life to a contemporary and smart wardrobe.
