Etnia Barcelona's Warriors Campaign SS20 Collection

ETNIA BARCELONA’S 2020 WARRIORS CAMPAIGN – SS20 COLLECTION

Forward-thinking Etnia Barcelona releases the 2020 WARRIORS Campaign for the SS20 Collection inviting us all to seek out our inner strength and act now to keep hope alive.

2020 WARRIORS from Etnia Barcelona invokes inner strength, confidence, achievement and struggle—the struggle to identify what we stand for and unabashedly defend our right to a beautiful future. In times of global anxiety about climate change and inequality, the campaign powerfully represents a new type of warrior, an activist for our age, defending the natural beauty that we too often take for granted. With this philosophy in mind, Etnia Barcelona’s SS20 collection brings us bold shapes with patterned acetates inspired by tropical palettes and deep greens that represent evergreen forests, the deep jungle and camouflage aesthetics. Dare to define and defend what is true and right and become a 2020 Warrior with Etnia Barcelona.

A DAVID BOWIE TRIBUTE BY ETNIA BARCELONA
A limited edition capsule inspired by the inimitable style and personality of David Bowie.

Way ahead of his time, David Bowie singlehandedly transformed culture with his music and fashion. For decades he remained a symbol of pioneering attitudes toward gender and style. An all-new limited edition series from Etnia Barcelona introduces two new sunglasses that represent the indelible style sensation from two of David Bowie’s most memorable and daring stage personas: Ziggy Stardust and The Thin White Duke.

Ziggy Stardust picks up on the glam side of Bowie—bold colors and patterns on a unisex style are a tribute to the message that unique is chic. A sleek metal silhouette in the Thin White Duke comes in three colorways with unique lenses that each have a secret in store: breath on the lenses and David Bowie’s famous lightning bolt will appear.

For style that has both attitude and meaning there is none other than David Bowie, and Etnia Barcelona has done his legacy proud with a tribute collection to this trailblazing cultural icon.

Etnia Barcelona, always inspired by cultural trends, is revealing a year-end limited edition sunglasses collection that pays tribute to the immortal David Bowie and his lasting influence on fashion and style. Introducing two brand new sunglasses models: Ziggy Stardust and The Thin White Duke.

David Bowie shares the free spirit and Anartist attitude that is so representative of the Barcelona-based brand. Not only has Bowie been an icon for several decades, he remains a champion of artists, outsiders and free thinkers of all stripes, exemplifying unapologetic individuality and fearless self-expression. Bowie never ceased to surprise and captivate with his array of personas and ever changing musical styles, but he made one thing crystal clear, beyond the makeup, costumes, and elaborate staging: he always remained true to who he really was, unmistakably David Bowie.

This year, the brand has a very clear message for us: take control of what makes you unique and authentic, and show it to the world with pride. It’s a message that we heard loud and clear in their fall/winter 2019 I’MPERFECT campaign. Bringing together all of Bowie’s influences, Etnia Barcelona has designed an exclusive collection of glasses including two sunglasses models with a Glam and cutting-edge feel, full of little details and secrets inspired by the two most significant alter egos of the singer’s career: Ziggy Stardust and The Thin White Duke.

ZIGGY STARDUST, is the more audacious model of the collection, inspired by the costumes Bowie wore during his Glam period. The Etnia Barcelona design team has developed a unisex style out of natural acetate in 3 colors: mottled using a mix of colors reminiscent of his iconic stripes and the shoulder padded “spacesuit” that he wore on The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust Tour; black with silver stripes, inspired by the patent leather bodysuit he wore on the Aladdin Sane Tour and, last but not least, white and blue translucent acetate reminiscent of Bowie’s own glasses from this period. As with all of their collections, the brand continues to use natural Mazzucchelli acetate and mineral lenses by Barberini.

THE THIN WHITE DUKE, is the more sophisticated and classic model. It is inspired by the glasses that Bowie wore
in the film The Man Who Fell to Earth and on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in 1976. An elegant metal design with mineral crystal lenses by Barberini available in 3 colors: pink, blue, and black.

Something new about both models is that Etnia Barcelona is introducing special lenses that reveal a star and David Bowie’s iconic Aladdin Sane lightning bolt when you exhale on them.

A David Bowie Tribute by Etnia Barcelona is a collection filled with symbolism in honor of the London-born singer. A limited edition collection that conveys the transgression, and power that was so characteristic of Bowie. His innovation in music, theater, and fashion, and his unmistakable style resonate with today’s visual culture and can be found everywhere in this unique collection.

A David Bowie Tribute by Etnia Barcelona will be available as of October 28th at the brand’s Flagship Store (C/Espaseria 1–3, 08003 Barcelona), and as of November 14th in the online store and selected points of sale worldwide. For more information, please see www.etniabarcelona.com.

ETNIA BARCELONA’S “I’MPERFECT” CAMPAIGN – FW19 COLLECTION

I’MPERFECT is the playful yet meaningful name for the new campaign from Etnia Barcelona announcing their latest collection—a provocative call to action, urging us to unite in our differences and unapologetically celebrate our imperfections. Colorful, glitzy, and glamorous, the extravagant new collection reinvents the concept of perfection for a different take on what it means to take a stand by standing out.

Etnia Barcelona presents the “I’MPERFECT” campaign to launch its FW19 collection. An imperfect campaign that re-examines the idea of perfection itself and champions what is unique in us all. No approval, no permission, no apologies required.

We are reclaiming the kind of imperfection that breaks the mold and challenges stereotypes. It is the same imperfection that makes us unique and authentic. We are truly convinced that we need to embrace our differences rather than hide them, proudly turning them into a mark of our identity. Always loyal to ourselves, and feeling comfortable even in the discomfort of looks. Because it’s only when you stop searching for perfection that the truth appears.

That is I’MPERFECT. Reclaiming our uniqueness is more important than being perfect. Imperfect models whose beauty doesn’t fit the con- ventional standards. People who have stories to tell, in front the camera but also, more importantly, behind it.

These are real stories from real people who are imperfect, just like you, and just like all of us. People who are happy just as they are, with- out inhibitions or trying to fit a certain stereotype.

They are Liliya, Kokie, Pau, Kaine, Xueli and Jordi, seen through the lens of photographer Biel Capllonch to launch the pieces from the new, Glam-inspired Etnia Barcelona FW collection.

Discover the full story

The fall/winter 2019 collection from Etnia Barcelona is imperfect as well as authentic each pair of glasses is different to the next. Unique textures and colors achieved thanks to the artisanal production process and the savoir-faire of our partners Mazzucchelli, who create the natural acetate of our frames, and Barberini who help us develop our mineral lenses.

A collection inspired by the Glam esthetic of the 70s, whose icons still thrill us. Glam was all about unique beauty and not being afraid to stand out, the freedom to express or reinvent yourself every step of the way, celebrating and valuing individual personality.

So we present new designs including metallics, acetates, sprinklings of glitter and gleaming havana patterns, along with extravagant and provocative shapes. A collection that aims to turn heads while staying true to our DNA and unmistakable style.

The new Etnia Barcelona collection is available in the online store, the Flagship Store in Barcelona and at your usual outlets (check the shopfinder on www.etniabarcelona.com).

ETNIA BARCELONA’S ALL NEW JAPAN-INSPIRED TITANIUM COLLECTION

Best of Both Worlds – Etnia Barcelona Takes on Titanium in their All New Titanium Collection for Spring/Summer 2019

For their first collection in titanium, colorful, creative, and super-stylish Etnia Barcelona went all in with 100% pure titanium, 100% made in Japan. Etnia Barcelona has a reputation for bringing an exceptional level of creativity to their design approach and this collection is no exception. Taking Japanese traditions as their starting point, they take us on a journey that picks up on the minimalist and detail-oriented tendencies of this ancient culture, while remaining true to their own cutting edge identity.

A total of ten new models round out the collection, 6 optical frames and 4 new sunglasses, which represents the companies first foray into titanium. The collection, which became available in January 2019, boldly presents their signature take on what a titanium frame can be. Daring combinations of pure titanium with colorful patterns and colors on acetate rims showcase Etnia Barcelona’s creative verve and flare for design while keeping in mind the lightweight and refined features that titanium brings to the table.
