Barbara Bologna is an Italian artist and designer who founded her eponymous brand, strictly made in Italy, in 2001. Being a multi-disciplined artist herself, she takes care of the styling, print creations and other myriad details of her collections, which are presented in Milan and Paris, and distributed worldwide in high-end boutiques. Barbara puts a spotlight on experimental and exaggerated silhouettes; Voluminous trapeze designs embody decadent drama, while dynamic animal prints are reimagined with offbeat asymmetrical lines and flirty ruffles. Exaggerated shoulders and padded accents typify the label's theatrical aesthetic.
