Etnia Barcelona, as always inspired by the world of art and cultural movements, presents a limited- edition capsule collection in collaboration with Ignasi Montreal, the “enfant terrible” of Spanish art, famous for his works with high fashion brands and artists like Dua Lipa or Fka Twigs.

Together, Etnia Barcelona and the Spanish Rome-based artist have designed a line of eyewear, with details that make it a true collector’s item. The line of eyewear includes a single model of sunglasses in three different colors, crafted in natural Mazzucchelli acetate and Barberini mineral glass lenses, with an extra eyes on the temples, which is the particular sign of this capsule. 

In addition to the frames, Ignasi Monreal has also created two eye-shaped masks for the collection campaign, destined to travel around Rome, the artist’s second home and the scenario chosen by him for the campaign, made in collaboration with the photographer Paolo Zerbini. It shows the tour that the eyes took around Rome and it is a celebration of the artist’s memories of the city.
