The new Etnia Barcelona Vintage collection is a tribute to independent culture. Malasaña, Kreuzberg, Williamsburg, Shoreditch, Mission District…Each model takes its name from a historic neighborhood in a major world city, known for the cultural movements that started there and defined each of them.

The vibrant and “non-conformist” neighbourhood in downtown Madrid. It lived through the popular uprising that was later continued by the Spanish War of Independence.
A hundred and eighty years later, the decade of the ’70s and early ’80s saw the blossoming of the era of liberty, the underground, drugs … in short, the era of the “Movida Madrileña”, a musical movement that overtook Spain in the ’80s and continues to mark and influence thousands of people with its exquisite transgressive, liberating power and modernity. No doubt one of the most important cultural movements of the end of the last century.
