Etnia

2001: ETNIA BARCELONA IS BORN

An Independent Eyewear Brand

David brought color to a product that, up until that point, had only been brown or black. If there was one thing he knew, it was that he did not want to dedicate his efforts to just manufacturing glasses; he wanted something more. That something was creating a brand. A brand that embodied the idea of being free, human and respectful towards all ethnicities. He wanted a brand that thought of all people and forms of expression through color and art. That’s how Etnia Barcelona was born.

BARCELONA

The city that inspires us

Barcelona plays an important role in our history as it has witnessed the birth and growth of our company. It’s a city that is open to the world, innovative, rebellious and visionary. It’s a dynamic city that evolves at the speed of light, but that never forgets where it came from. Barcelona has forged our character and our way of doing things. A brand that always looks forward without forgetting its roots.

Etnia Barcelona offers exclusive sun and eyeglass designs with color featuring as the key element. The brand, with a clear concept of breaking boundaries, is closely linked to art and culture, and all its campaigns revolve around these two concepts.

Face a Face

FACE A FACE

Launched in 1995, FACE A FACE is a contemporary eyewear brand founded in France by Pascal Jaulent, Nadine Roth and Alyson Magee. After joining the DESIGN EYEWEAR GROUP in 2015, FACE A FACE moved its headquarters to Denmark. Today, FACE A FACE has offices around the world - from Aarhus to Paris and San Francisco. The design team remains based in Paris and frames are crafted in France, Italy or Japan, depending on the expertise required.

FACE A FACE is an audacious, non-conformist eyewear brand. It was born from Parisian artistic culture more than 25 years ago and has been evolving with it ever since. The collections draw inspiration from modern art, architecture, contemporary design and fashion trends.

With exquisite combinations of materials, unique shapes and vibrant colour palettes, FACE A FACE collections strike a perfect balance between quality, function and design. From sophisticated to playful, each collection has a distinctive character and emotion, making the eyewear as unique as the face wearing it.

"FACE A FACE is more than just a brand. It's a reflection of the best the world has to offer. Each frame is a handcrafted work of art. There is luxury in every detail. And each new collection is evolution by cultural selection. It's about audacity and aesthetic frontiers. It's style and attitude. And after a quarter of a century, FACE A FACE is still at the cutting edge."
Pascal Jaulent

Offering the best in optical care and sun protection, FACE A FACE has established itself at the pinnacle of luxury eyewear.

Maui Jim

Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Maui. Seeing a need in the market for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colours of the island to life, they engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus2® lens. 

What began as a collection of seven styles, has evolved into over 725 styles of sunglasses, all of which are polarized and protect from 700% of UVA and UVB rays.
