Last week we visited our favorite Italian brand, Barena Venezia, along with some of our dearest partners, Andreas Murkudis, Bungalow and Schwittenberg. During the 4-day-long trip, we had the opportunity to visit the family business' HQ in Mirano and take an exclusive preview of the Barena Tales capsule collection and its elegant silhouettes and soft materials. It's a homage to the earlier times and how people dressed up in sophisticated, chic, elegant and multi-functional pieces to spend glorious times in the Lido. P.S. We are showing Barena Venezia's newest collection in Paris, so make sure you book your appointment.“There is a cabane occupied by a lady that no one knows, although she is an habitué of the Lido and very rich”. - Vogue - September 28, 1929 - Barena Venezia
To enlighten our busy day at the Barena Atelier, we had an intimate dinner together and shared some traditional Italian dishes that we all love. It was a particular time for us in Venice, not only because of the hospitality of the Barena Family but also because the 59th Venice Biennale was still on, along with the 66th International Festival of Contemporary Music, in the Lido, Venice. The Lido and its lifestyle inspire the Barena Tales capsule collection and therefore, experiencing these events first-hand at Lido made the trip whole.
