This year, fashion brand Esprit will launch several limited edition collections in cooperation with “smaller scale” producers and designers. The first to receive this global platform is Gostwyck Farm, an Australian producer of sustainable merino wool.
“Cashmere-like wool from happy sheep”
According to Philip Attard, Gostwyck Farm’s owner, his wool is special because it feels like cashmere and it is produced ethically and with great attention for the sheep’s well-being. Colin Henry, Esprit’s Chief Product Officer, agrees: “We are proud to be the first company to set such high standards for the quality and origin of the fibre we use in this Esprit limited edition, but also to drive high levels in terms of animal care and sustainability, which gives the range a greater sense of achievement and purpose”.
The Gostwyck Merin collection will hit the (selected) stores in September in Europe, Asia, New-Zealand and Australia itself. It will consist of a cowl neck, cable knit sweater, an essential button through cardigan and stylish jumper dress – each costing between 90 and 120 euro.
