ESPRIT North America Launch



Yesterday was the official re-launch of ESPRIT in North America and Vancouver is lucky enough to be the home of the first flagship location! I say “re-launch” because ESPRIT used to be a huge staple in the North American retail industry  before a corporate decision to pull out of Canada and the US to focus on its thriving European markets a few years ago. However, that hasn’t prevented the brand from making a killing over the past few years! They have been so popular globally that they recently decided to start making their way back to our soil, starting right here in Vancouver! Aren’t we special?

ESPRIT has also started making waves in the retail realm by rebranding themselves to offer customers a completely curated experience. Walking into ESPRIT 10 years ago you would immediately see large, bold lettering and it felt like you were walking into a larger, slightly overwhelming department store. Now, when you walk into ESPRIT you see  carefully curated lines for men and women, giving you a boutique experience right from the start. They have also brought themselves back to their Californian roots, offering relaxed pieces with an incredible high quality compared to their price point!

For yesterdays event I decided to sport my Canadian tuxedo. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s basically an all denim outfit… you know, something a farmer would love…

My shirt is actually one of my everyday go-tos because it’s so soft and incredibly comfortable (and concealing!). The jeans are by far the tightest pair of jeans I own, so tight one might even want to call them jeggings, but not. The bag, well the bag looks like one of our favorite designer bags, but is actually a dupe that you can get for under $30! Personally, I just love the colour because It’s the closest thing to pink that you will see me wear!
