DREAMING OF IMPOSSIBLY BLUE OCEAN AND SKIES
Pioneers, indeed, in the study of color and the psyche, ETNIA BARCELONA’s Klein Blue (KB) collection had 4SEE dreaming of Barcelona’s impossibly blue ocean and skies.
LABEL PROFILER – ETNIA BARCELONA: The retro-cool collection features gentle shapes that are big on personality and Barberini lenses – arguably the most technologically advanced lenses in the world. Not only do they provide 70% better vision than plastic lenses, they last longer and are healthier for your eyes.
ETNIA BARCELONA is a brand that melds art, color and light, and this is especially evident with their Wild Love in Africa (WLA) handcrafted, limited edition sunglass collection. We loved the classic silhouettes and textures inspired by the African Savanna, like wood, zebra hair, giraffe skin, and horn. We especially loved their select frames accented with blue metal and blue lenses, which had us longing for the Serengeti skies. WLA frames are made from 100% eco-friendly acetate and Barberini mineral glass lenses that are also HD vision manufactured so that the colors you see through your lenses are as intense as the one on your frames. Royalties from KB will be donated to The Orphanaid NGO, while 2% from WLA global sales will go towards funding the Africa Rising Foundation.
