Esprit goes back to its Californian roots

Esprit goes back to its Californian roots with the redesign of many of its stores. Shop features natural materials, wooden furniture, linen covered armchairs, sun-bleached warm colours and lots of plants. A warmer more intimate style which appeals much more than the white with bright colors!
