Etnia Barcelona // Independent style

Mariam is wearing Josette, a pure elegant sunglass by Etnia Barcelona, for women with a natural independent style. With its hexagon rim design and topline brow details, this unique design combines several upcoming trends, as we can expect from their Barcelona-based design team.

This frame features a comfortable modern geometrical profile that is perfect for all types of faces and made in premium metal. Its natural mineral photochromic HD lenses are manufactured with high-quality shock-resistant crystals with anti-scratch and anti-static electricity treatment. Available in different original colour combinations.


Josette is part of their “TERRA  Still I Rise” collection, which depicts an unexpected awakening, a reconciliation with ourselves and our surroundings. The realization that we are nature and have become nature once again.

Terra marks an inverted exodus, one leading from the city to the country. A return to our roots, a journey inwards allowing us to realize that what is most simple is also most necessary.

About Etnia Barcelona

Etnia Barcelona is an independent eyewear brand that was founded in 2001. All collections are created from start to finish by the brand’s design team, who monitor every step of the production process. What sets Etnia Barcelona apart is the use of color in each design, making it the eyewear industry’s most colorful brand. What’s more, every pair of glasses is crafted with the highest quality natural materials, such as natural acetate by Mazzucchelli and mineral crystal lenses by Barberini.

The company has offices in Barcelona, Miami, Vancouver, and Hong Kong and can be found in over 60 countries with 14,000 points of sale throughout the world. They now have their first Flagship Store, located in the iconic Born neighborhood of Barcelona. This is a space devoted to eyewear culture that brings together the best the brand has to offer under one roof.

Etnia Barcelona’s tagline #BeAnartist dares everyone to express themselves freely with their designs, without holding back. Ever since, they have been so much more than just an eyewear brand. Etnia Barcelona is color, art, and culture, but above all, they symbolize the city that has watched them thrive: Barcelona. Barcelona is a whole way of life, a place that’s open to the world: it’s all simply a question of attitude.
