This Spring 2017, we’re once again collaborating with Esprit, debuting a collection which draws from the counterculture mall brand’s fresh, subversive history. Inspired by funhouse prints and sherbert stripes from Esprit’s ‘80s and ‘90s heydey—with silhouettes that will look as modern in 20 years as they would have on a Memphis Milano sofa. “Esprit and Opening Ceremony share an ethos, from our relationship with global youth culture to our insistence on diversity in fashion,” says Opening Ceremony co-founder Humberto Leon. “This collection channels that spirit.”
Below we introduce you to the Esprit by Opening Ceremony Summer ‘17 collection. An assortment filled with elated, mix and-match separates in easy, versatile, gender neutral shapes. Photographer Matt Jones captures the youthful energy and like-minded spirit of Esprit in our latest editorial featuring Coco Gordon and Arsun Sorrenti, who help bring to life the seminal moments in Esprit’s history in a series of videos and images.
