Etnia Barcelona Africa 09 prescription glasses - HVBL 54x17
This is the story of a journey.
From Barcelona to South Africa.
From the Wild to Love.
This is a story of Love for the Wild.
A love story for Africa.
This is how we present our new sun collection for this season. A collection inspired by wild Africa; for its colors, for its fauna, for its intensity, for its immutable love. With these models we present the entire new range of acetates with animal prints and organic prints such as leopards, zebras, horns, wood... always combined with the touch of color that characterizes us.
The acetate of the collection is designed by Etnia Barcelona and manufactured by Mazzuccheli (Milan); the most important acetate factory in Europe. A 100% eco-friendly acetate, made with natural organic compounds (cotton and cellulose pulp) 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
All models are equipped with mineral lenses from the Italian manufacturer Barberini; much higher quality lenses among which we find HD, polarized, gradient, photogrchomic and mirroed.
For this project we have collaborated with the collaboration of the excellent photographer Steve McCurry for the campaign. Following the concept of the collection, we embarked on an adventure in the heart of Africa to find that face that would inspire us. We met Johannes, a painter and resident of a small town 4 hours north of Johannesburg. Delighted with the experience and wisdom that was reflected in his face, we let Steve, with total freedom, be able to express his art. An incredible experience that is transmitted in the collection and that we love to share with you!
In this project we collaborate with the NGO Africa Rising Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Ndaba and Kweku Mandela at the end of 2009 with the aim of contributing to the development of the African continent.
We hope you enjoy the collection as much as we did releasing it; with much love we present you the WILD LOVE in AFRICA collection!
