Barena X monocle

The Venetian lagoon provides a fittingly fetching backdrop to the HQ of this Italian tailoring firm. Its focus on craftsmanship, tactile materials and seemly silhouettes has made it a favourite since it started in 1961 but it caught our eye by being family-run, playful and perfectly conceived. Barena’s products, made with the best Italian textiles, may riff on traditional Venetian dress but the contemporary pieces will look elegant wherever your travels take you.
