ESPRIT Spring Summer 2013

There are a few brands that I have grown up with and still love them even though I am a middle aged adult - is that what you call someone who turns 40 this year? One of my fave labels that I still wear is ESPRIT. Had a sneak peek of some of their Spring Summer collection themed "Travel in style, travel in company". 

The ESPRIT Spring Summer campaign also features two new campaign faces, fashion icons – US model and actress Dree Hemingway and Chinese top model Liu Wen. This collection as seen from the catalogues and also from the fashion showcase that i saw is all about style and comfort. Its plenty of pastels, neutrals and earthy tones paired with coral reds, turquoises as well as acid greens are ready to awaken the holiday spirit of the fashion-savvy. Though really as I look at it, its not just for travels as I foresee many of the pieces going into my daily wardrobe even on my slightly more formal days. And from the men's range...I gladly say that I have spotted a few that the hubster will like too. He was not an Esprit wearer until I bought his his first ESPRIT shirt in 1998 when we dated.

Now let's see what some of the SS13 pieces are!

Lovely sketch on the cover for the catalogue and a lil story about the ESPRIT folks.
A nice travel feel to it too!
The showcase was held at Galleria in Pavilion with some lovely ESPRIT SS13 poster prints 
amidst the paintings.
Aptly some candy coloured accessories for the season and also some classic browns.
Joyce holds up a bikini from the SS13 collection. Pretty and very much a holiday mood. 
Not my regular colour but I am keen to check it out for a refreshing change from my usual 
black or blue bikinis.
A little more formal but they make lovely pieces for work and even travels 
when we need to be a lil dressier:D
Its spring summer so bright colours with details of prints spices things up.
Chic even though its earth tones.
Spot the print details on the blouse. Lovely touches of colour to an otherwise plain blouse.
Something for the boys.
Lovely play of colours and its smart dressing to spice up the blues and earth tones.
When I showed the hubster this photo, he remarked "I think this 2 pieces are going into your wardrobe. Its so you!" And I am thinking definitely yes! In fact I was asking Joyce about the playsuit when I saw her and the models wearing it.
Blue and red are totally chic!

Key pieces for the collection include printed cigarette and slim pants, crisp shirts, laidback blazers, boxy jackets, bowler hats and the essential skinny jeans. Metallic accessories such as statement holdall bags and lathy belts turn up the fashion volume. This SS13 collection will be made available starting from February 2013 at all ESPRIT stores nationwide.
