Etnia Barcelona Presents The UNDERWATER Campaign

Etnia Barcelona presents its new UNDERWATER campaign, transporting us to a surreal and hypnotic universe that evokes the mystery of the deep sea. Once again, the Barcelona-based brand’s campaign is an exercise in creativity, experimentation, and attention to detail.

In the unexplored depths of the ocean, where even rays of sunlight dare not penetrate, there exists an unknown realm. Etnia Barcelona seeks to unravel the mysteries of the deep sea through a journey of creative and surreal exploration. UNDERWATER recreates an underwater universe inhabited by mystical beings, where flora and fauna mesmerize with the beauty and richness of their colors. Ethereal forms that replicate corals and other marine creatures merge and intertwine with mystical beings that inhabit the depths. Their gentle, undulating movements can be felt enveloping bodies and faces, submerged in the silence of the ocean floor.

Moreover, UNDERWATER is a universe created through artificial intelligence. An artificial intelligence that, however, moves us away from a cold and robotic image to bring us closer to a world where technology merges with nature to create a magical and harmonious environment, respecting every detail. Etnia Barcelona’s new campaign invites us to explore the mysteries of the underwater world while reflecting on the coexistence of human creativity with artificial intelligence to create a surprising world.

This surreal universe is also reflected in the designs of the new collection. UNDERWATER includes 22 new models, 18 for prescription and 4 for sunglasses, with variations in color. The collection, inspired by the underwater world, combines a palette of translucent tones, evoking reflections of light in the water, with solid colors inspired by underwater flora and fauna. Furthermore, the glasses bear names related to marine imagery such as Arrecife, Posidonia, Anemona, or Coral, among many others.
