Etnia Barcelona, an independent eyewear brand known for its commitment to art, quality, and color, launches ‘Casa Batlló x Etnia Barcelona’, a limited-edition capsule of sunglasses inspired by the most significant symbols of Antoni Gaudí’s work. With this new capsule, the brand elevates the look with a unique, creative, and sophisticated vision.

‘Casa Batlló x Etnia Barcelona’ is inspired by one of the most emblematic buildings in the city of Barcelona, a World Heritage Site, and one of the greatest examples of Modernism, an artistic movement transformative for the Catalan capital due to its decorative exuberance, explosion of color, and characteristic sinuous and undulating lines. A living and free art inspired by the organic forms of nature, breaking with previous norms.
