At the turn of our current millennium, a certain spot in the Balearic Islands emerged as an epicenter of art, fashion and party-friendly lifestyle. Early on, independent eyewear label ETNIA BARCELONA was among the first to absorb this tremendous creative energy. In 2003, the island vibe manifested in the legendary IBIZA eyewear collection true to the label’s standout style. At a time when subtle, dark color palettes dominated eyewear design, ETNIA launched a range full of color pops and vibrant accents that have since become a calling card for the brand. As a special feature, the rich color hues of ETNIA’s frames really come to life under the blacklight ambiance of Ibiza’s nightclubs.
About 17 years have passed and ETNIA is doubling down with the IBIZA VOL.2 collection. As a tribute to the original, the line once again seeks to capture the spirit of the island and its festive ambiance in rich, energetic colorways. The models in the collection combine culture and tradition with an avantgarde approach, reflected in combinations such as classic Havana patterns applied onto layers of striking neon. The craftsmanship is also top-notch as always: While the frames are crafted from premium Mazzucchelli acetate, mineral lenses are provided by Barberini for that upscale finish. In an exclusive SPECTR collection shoot, photographer Rachel Jiam showcases select models from the current collection. The outcome? Looks amazing! Not just on the beaches of Ibiza.
