The aviator is a classic to be sure, but what has Etnia done with this great shape of the ages? The shape that was originally designed for our grandfathers and great-grandfathers to wear in fighter planes. They did what they always do. They splashed some color on it. Ok, they splashed a lot of color on it. When I count up all the blue frames I own it is safe to say that blue is my favorite color in eyewear, but it is also safe to say I have nothing like this. Perhaps that is why I had so much fun on this shoot. It's hard not to smile while wearing a color so vibrant as this.
It's not just the color, but the construction of this frame is particularly interesting because it is a combination of acetate and metal. The designers in Spain, where Etnia Barcelona originates, utilized their nano-flex metal core material in the front and temples. This makes it super light weight and comfy to wear, while simultaneously creating a big and bold look.
