Esprit – a homage to the relaxed, sunny Californian attitude towards life. And the free spirit of 1968, the year it was founded. For women, men and kids, Esprit creates inspiring styles made from high-quality materials with great attention to detail. Each piece shows just how much effort Esprit puts into its creations.
Making the Esprit spirit tangible: as part of a transformation program launched in September 2011, the fashion label will invest a total of over 280 million euros into redesigning its directly managed stores. This program will run until 2015 and is aimed at strengthening the overall brand character over the long term.
Esprit is present in more than 40 countries and sells its fashion items in more than 1,100 directly managed retail stores worldwide, as well as in more than 11,000 wholesale points-of-sales. This includes franchise partners and sales space in department stores. The company is listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange, has over 14,000 employees and achieved a turnover of 3.2 billion euros in 2010/11.
