It is fair to say that Luciano Barbera became famous as an early star of street style in the 1960s, promoting his own fashion designs. The final breakthrough was prompted by an image published in L’Uomo Vogue that led to an unexpectedly strong demand for his creations. The fact that his father owned a textiles factory was certainly helpful for Luciano Barbera’s fashion career. He used extremely precious yarns that were produced in his father’s factory and that were unrivalled at the time, in terms of touch and wearing comfort. Ever since, and for more than 40 years by now, Luciano Barbera has been producing classy and timeless collections under his own name in Biella, Italy. The style is characterised by effortless elegance that reflects a typically Italian style. The commitment to quality stretches across all levels of production – from yarn selection through to perfect hand finishing.
