Deconstruction is in, from literature to music, to art and now, to fashion. In Espirit’s spring/summer collection, the focus is no longer on formal style, but of comfort and ease which can be worn while taking the bar, or at the bar.
The ladies’ collection places emphasis on ethnic styles, using a wide range of colours which are inspired by nature, refreshing but not too flamboyant.
Floral patterns are also reintroduced to give a touch of ’30s elegance, and eveningwear will utilise interesting textures and colours for that touch of glamour.
For its casual Sunday wear, fun and sporty is the look Espirit presents. Sleeveless blouses, cool cuffed shorts, and sexy T-shirts provide a wide variety of choices in a very clean style.
Vintage looks are available by the use of surface treatments to give that touch of elegance. edc by Espirit has also revamped itself, using old colonial designs and reinventing them with a sporty flamboyance, to give that touch of funky and fun. Drainpipe trousers and blazers in destressed washes give the cool rocker girl look, and drapey T-shirts provide a new androgynous look, while long skirts provide a ladylike appeal.
A great emphasis is placed on fine fabrics which allow comfort in the warm weather, and multiple layers to keep you warm in the office, or while shopping. Fun summer colours make the designs vibrant and eye-catching, bringing out the fun in the girl.
The men do finally get it this time, as Espirit Homme uses a similar style for its casual wear collection. In line with the ladies, the men’s collection combines preppy with beachwear styles, and a touch of military toughness brings out the man in you. Casual T-shirts and casual blazers are perfect for the weekend look, and faded shirts to give that touch of vintage.
At the same time, Espirit does not drift too far from prints and stripes, now all the rage. Comfy materials are emphasized, and cotton and silk are used widely in its range. Fitted blazers complete the young yet cool look. So be sure to check out the Espirit stores for a new, refreshing look, perfect for sunny Singapore.
