Get to Know Luciano Barbera
In the late 1960s acclaimed photographer Ugo Mulas captured Luciano Barbera wearing a Saxony windowpane suit he had created for himself using fine fabrics from his family’s textile mill just outside Milan. The stunning black-and-white image appeared in L’Uomo Vogue, and Barbera’s fate as a designer was sealed.
Today, just as in 1971, when the brand was born, the Luciano Barbera name stands for quality, made-entirely-in-Italy craftsmanship and that uniquely Italian quality of sprezzatura—described by Barbera as “knotting your tie or wearing your jacket in a natural way, leaving behind an effortless impression. The most forceful statement is understatement.”
Indeed Luciano Barbera designs are a study in unobtrusive elegance—a direct reflection of the man himself. Try out the brand at the Woodbury Mens Shop.
