The Flagship store represents the return of the Esprit brand to the U.S. Located in the heart of the Flatiron District, on 5th Avenue, in NYC, the 10,000 sq ft Flagship carries a cutting-edge design, which incorporates classic interior elements of its landmarked building and represents Esprit’s hip and modern brand: Vaulted ceilings, cast iron columns and arched windows were exposed.
The existing mezzanine and back offices were removed to allow for two-story fitting rooms and a loft-like atmosphere. Other highlights include four bold, large custom art installations featuring the Esprit logo and an 18-foot wall of slumped mesh and glass. All these elements enhance the sculptural and classic forms of the Esprit clothing line.
