Etnia Barcelona presents new eyewear models inspired in the splendor of 18th-century French gardens. This spring, the Barcelona-based firm is adding six new eyewear models to its nature-inspired SS20 collection.
Etnia Barcelona’s Le Jardin collection is an ode to the floral displays of the earliest French private gardens, such as that of the fabulous Palace of Versailles. These new designs take inspiration from the textures and colors of flowers such as daisies, lilies, roses and peonies. This spring, the brand transports us to a delicate natural world, where these designs are the perfect accessory.
Over-the-top and colorful frames reflect carefully-pruned vegetation, arranged according to rules steeped in classic beauty. Oversized models, light ones that seek out symmetry by playing with double ultra-thin laminations and transparent colors that imitate light and water
passing through flower petals. Unique textures and colors that strike a balance, thanks to the artisanal production process used by the brand for its collections, with the highest-quality materials such as cotton and wood for the frames and mineral glass for the lenses.
The new Etnia Barcelona collection is available in its Flagship Store in Barcelona and at select points of sale (check the shopfinder to learn more about its network of optical stores).
