Esprit to roll out five new collections

High street fashion retailer Esprit is launching five new ranges of women’s and girls’ clothing, including nightwear and swimwear, next year.

The retailer, which opened its UK flagship store in London’s Regent Street in May, has signed licensing agreements with US-based Carole Hochman Designs, Backflips and the Levy Group to create the lines, which will be launched as part of the chain’s spring collection next year.

Carole Hochman Designs will be responsible for the nightwear, daywear and loungewear ranges, while the Levy Group will design a range of women’s outerwear. Backflips is producing a line of girls’ swimwear, which is to be launched this summer.

The opening of the London store signalled Esprit’s return to the UK market after a three-year absence. The company, which closed its nine loss-making UK outlets in 1998, is opening a second UK store at Bluewater in Kent in September.

Esprit already has licensing agreements in place to produce women’s swimwear, eyewear and bath and home products. The Esprit brand is sold in 44 countries.
