It’s all about esprit
In 1968, Susie and Doug Tompkins sold their own line of clothes out of the back of a station wagon in San Fransisco and by their energy, enthusiasm and enjoyment give birth to the Esprit brand.
In 1971 the company is incorporated under the name of Esprit de Corp. and seven lines are created and the same year Esprit Far East Group is born in Hong-Kong.
In 1976 Esprit is incorporated in Germany and quickly develops into one of the most successful lifestyle brands in the European market.
In 1995 is the official launch of Esprit time wear and in 1998 is the official launch of Esprit JewelEsprit – a homage to the relaxed, sunny Californian attitude towards life and the free spirit of 1968. 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.
