The long hot summer of 1968 saw Susie and Douglas Tompkins leave their hometown of San Francisco and drive out across the country in their station wagon loaded with new fashion designs to be sold in open markets across America. This was the beginning of Esprit and little did they know at the time just how successful the brand would go on to be globally.
Authentic, natural, inspired by sun, sea and a feeling of pure joie de vivre are the essential design elements that are firmly rooted in the core of the brand.
Today Esprit is a leading global brand that stays true to the spirit of its heritage and the brand’s joie de vivre roots. Fashion conscious consumers are constantly inspired by different materials, colours and styles which forms the foundation for the design team at Esprit Timewear & Jewels.
In summary, Esprit is all about simple, elegant and affordable luxury.
