Esprit recently previewed its stylish Spring Summer 2016 collection at a relaxed get-together hosted at Andreea’s, Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa, JBR, Dubai Marina. Keeping true to the original spirit of the brand, the event venue was creatively transformed to showcase California’s sunny lifestyle against Dubai’s stunning beach backdrop. The Spring Summer collection was displayed in a peppy fashion show that began at just about sunset – giving the whole collection a stunningly diffused ambiance.
Here’s a little about their Spring/Summer 2016 Lookbook protagonists – for Esprit, the international streetstyle blogger and model Candela Novembre and Argentinian frontman Maximiliano Patane, and for edc, Spanish Vogue blogger and model Alba Galocha and Danish model Eddie Klint.
PLAYFUL WITH SOPHISTICATION : Candela Novembre
Candela Novembre, is an Argentine native, a Milan-based model, international streetstyle blogger and active mom who can be seen wearing Esprit this season. Like Candela, who enjoys a fresh fashion mix that’s playful but not girly, the Esprit’s Spring/Summer line-up has a natural sophistication. Casually chic styles in cool, uncomplicated silhouettes catch the eye thanks to an interesting array of prints and artisanal wovens and knits. Revamped 70’s styles such as flares and jumpsuits pick up the pace, while Boho touches add an urban folk feel.
ROMANCE WITH AN EDGE : Alba Galocha
Alba Galocha’s own blend of romance and edge made the Spanish model and blogger for Vogue Spain a perfect choice to wear edc’s free-wheeling Spring/Summer looks. Evocative florals and paisleys come together, often in one look or even one piece, however they also create a fluid and streamlined look. For a new take on denim, there are wide, cropped pants and softly tailored jackets, or a shirt dress that looks like it is made out of your favorite pair of well-worn jeans. Leather and suede must-haves include the snap front midi suede skirt, easy suede shift, or this season’s trim motorcycle jacket recolored in exceptional tones.
STYLE WITH EASE : Maximiliano Patane and Eddie Klint
No hassle is the way to go for Esprit men next season, as personified by Argentine Maximiliano Patane, and edc’s Danish model Eddie Klint. A few easy pieces in just the right shapes make looking good effortless. Light down jackets, blousons in special finishes, and no frills sweaters take the chill out the earliest spring days, all to be layered over cool T-shirts and tops. In addition to well-fitting jeans in a variety of washes, look for drawstring waist or elastic cuffed pants, stretch jogging pants and laidback chinos.
The collection is now available at Esprit stores in UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
