Brera by Etnia Barcelona

Etnia Barcelona Brera Sun Vintage Collection Blog Hicks Brunson Eyewear

For those of you looking for an aviator with bit of an edge on the old traditional tear drop design, then look no further than Brera by Etnia Barcelona.  This black and gold color is hot with the gold mirrored lenses, and speaking of these lenses, the mineral crystal glass is of the highest optical clarity.  It is made by Barberini in Italy.  You see, Barberini is known for its’ exceptional quality glass lens craftsmanship.  The lenses in this color are also photochromic, which means they will darken slightly in brighter sun.  Just look at the way the light plays off of the gold mirror in the picture above.  I absolutely love that about mirrors, and how this effect is intensified with a relatively flat lens such as this.
