Barena’s approach to the summer season is fairly interesting. A lot of what they do revolves around knitted fabrics, and as I’ve mentioned before, working knits into a summer wardrobe sounds like an exercise in misery. It’s to Barena’s credit that their Pitti 86 booth didn’t seem like a throwaway or an afterthought (brands are required to rent a booth for both winter and summer shows to prevent a mass exodus as of July), but was pleasant and cohesive in its own right.
Spoopoker, one of our members, runs Luxeswap, a very successful high end clothing and accessories consignment business. No idea how he can work while dressed this way. When I am taking photos, or packing boxes, the best I can do is not to sweat out my tee.
