Etnia Barcelona // Candy for the Eyes

Elise is wearing model “Einstein” from the limited Euforia collection by Etnia Barcelona. This unique sunglass with its rounded and daring design gets its unique look by milling the upper part of the front revealing the neon-colored lines hidden behind, emphasizing the geometry.

All three models in this collection all come with HD colour mineral lenses that offer a truly unique visual experience in colour and quality. The temples are built in layers of acetate, superimposed to create a “see thru” effect. They end in a splendid blade bearing the exclusive motif created for each of the three models: an eye with rays of light, an eye with lashes or an eye and a pyramid.


Etnia Barcelona, true to its rebellious, non-conformist stance, presents a new capsule collection bursting with contrast and inspired by a range of fluorescent colours. The capsule, created “in a state of Euphoria”, transports us to a psychedelic, sophisticated world. Brimming with the vibrant hues ever-present in the colour palette of the Barcelona eyewear firm which has stood as a lighthouse for the study and application of colour. Colours which take the capsule by storm to create vitality-packed icons.

Eufluouria – Capsule collection by Entia Barcelona

Eufluoria is a ray of light, an explosion of life and colour. A painstakingly crafted, optimistic collection with an eye to the details that are the hallmark of the collection. Etnia turned to the Moroccan photographer Mous Lamrabat for the artwork for the campaign. Their creative team had been just itching to work with the artist, who shot the campaign in Belgium. Mous Lamrabat adds the finishing touches to the project with pictures flooded with an ethnic identity which transports us anew to the very roots of the firm. With this new limited-edition capsule, Etnia Barcelona further consolidates its standing as an innovative brand, bringing differential value to the optical, art and fashion sectors.
