FC BARCELONA and ETNIA BARCELONA release capsule
FC Barcelona and Etnia Barcelona have released a new capsule collection designed to “merge art and sport”, paying homage to the city where they were born and raised: Barcelona.
The Catalan city stands as the epicenter of collaboration between FC Barcelona and Etnia Barcelona. Both brands highlight the city’s cultural and artistic tradition and, the passion for its football team. Art and sport intertwine in this collaboration to celebrate the sense of belonging to a city and shared values.
The campaign revisits the format of illustration to capture the epic nature of sports as an artistic expression that, in addition to reflecting the passion for one of the world’s best clubs, also embodies the essence of this collection. This second half of the match between FC Barcelona and Etnia Barcelona consists of two product drops.
‘EINDHOVEN’ joins the “Colors of our history” collection, celebrating historic moments of the Club, from Wembley 1992 and Paris 2006 to Rome 2009, Wembley 2011, Berlin 2015, Gothenburg 2021, and now also Eindhoven. The feminine sunglass design, that values the empowerment of women and champions their role in the world of sports, is inspired by the outfit worn by FC Barcelona’s Women’s team when they won the final of the Women’s Champions League 2023.
‘1899 PREMIUM GOLD 24K’ is a re-edition of the previous ‘1899 Gold’ model, now in its premium version. An exclusive limited edition sunglass design paying tribute to the Club’s founding year, recreating the anatomy of Barça’s crest and playing with deconstructing it to embed it in 24-karat gold. The FC Barcelona collection designed by Etnia Barcelona will be available starting from January 2nd on the Etnia Barcelona website, at their flagship store, and in selected optical retail outlets worldwide. It will also be available in selected Barça retail outlets.
