ETNIA BARCELONA // DOLORES COLLECTION
Spanish Brand Etnia Barcelona introduce a Limited Capsule Edition inspired by Kubrick’s Movie LOLITA.
DOLORES: the adult representation of Lolita – the girl with a provocative attitude hidden behind a sweet and innocent gaze; the girl invented by the writer Vladimir Nabokov and who Kubrick dared to bring to the big screen in the 1960s.
Etnia’s DOLORES still shows traces of that little girl, visible in her pastel colors, naïf and candy-like style, and soft, rounded shape. However, in this reinterpretation, she has grown up and her experience proves that she is no longer those plastic glasses that were so fashionable in the 1960s. Because today, DOLORES is much stronger and resistant thanks to our high-quality finishing touches. The iconic and timeless shape of these glasses has evolved over time, marking a before and an after. It was Nirvana’s lead singer Kurt Cobain, who brought Lolita back to life in the 1990s, making her eyewear popular once again in an act of transgression that marked the beginnings of grunge.
