Etnia Barcelona was born from the mind of David Pellicer, a man who spent his childhood surrounded by glasses. David grew up playing in his parents’ factory while developing his knowledge and taste on the topic from an early age. David introduced color into an accessory that had always been brown or black. Red or yellow sunglasses didn’t exist before then, nor did glasses that combined two or three colors.
Etnia Barcelona’s creations are produced in natural acetate, a material made from cotton that is known for its comfort and malleability. The brand trusts its partners to design and manufacture the entire range of textures and colors for each season. The result is exhaustive control of the process from the start, with the materials, to the end, with the finished product.
All the colors are carefully selected, designed and produced by the brand. For the chromatic selection of each season Etnia Barcelona works with partners on trends and feeds off the world of fashion and art. Color studies are conducted twice a year to incorporate new tones into the designs and inspirational moods are generated to imbue the new collections with life, richness and content. Etnia Barcelona also recycles and renews trends from yesteryear for the collections that require them.
Etnia Barcelona is devoted to art, culture, travel, fashion. With new collections released twice a year, at Arbuthnots we aim to always stay stocked with the latest styles and colours from Etnia Barcelona.
