Milan, Italy was beautiful and spring certainly happens earlier there then in our Canadian West. I am just returning to our Canadian spring now from my yearly excursion to my homeland of Italy where I attended the Milan Vision Expo to scout out the European trends for eye-bar.
Etnia, made in Barcelona, is still one of my favorite European eyewear designers. This spring they have softened the look with curves and waves, reminiscent of the ocean, even naming one of their frames "Honolulu." Mixing materials such as acetates which resemble mother of pearl and tortoise shell with minimalist metal eyewires give a soft feminine appeal to the ladies frames. In the frames made for women and men, brilliant splashes of turquoise blue and aqua green bring to mind a tropical shore, and soft browns liken the sand underfoot. Enjoy exploring the warmth of Etnia's spring collection on your next visit to eye-bar.
Color is a major 2013 trend, and not just in eyewear. This Spanish collection puts a spin on color by incorporating it into clear acetate. The results are jewelry-like as shown in this modified cateye frame whose top portion is striped and bottom portion is pixelated. These would look stunning on someone with light brown hair and blue eyes.
To see how you look in these cat-eye glasses, visit eye-bar in Sherwood Park. eye-bar’s opticians and eyewear specialists can help you select your perfect frames.
To ensure optimal vision with your eyewear from eye-bar, always keep your prescription lenses up to date. You can schedule your next appointment with an eye-bar optometrist using our online booking system.
The Etnia Barcelona line seems to have found that delicate balance between classic appeal and trendy style. The ophthalmic collection contains both plastic and metal pieces, and the quality and workmanship of the product line has been phenomenal.
Exciting for this summer was the release of the Etnia Barcelona Sunglass Collection. These bold sunglass pieces have been a huge hit in our optical.
A cool fun fact to know about the Etnia Barcelona line is that all their frames are named after international cities such as: Abu Dhabi, Budapest, London, Moscow, and Edmonton. Just don’t tell the people in the south, apparently their city didn’t make the cut!
