We're calling it now - we will all be swathing ourselves in in ESP's comfortable cocoons next summer
In 2015, designer and entrepreneur Elisabeth Stray Pedersen took over a 65 year old outerwear factory situated in Oslo and as such, the eponymous ESP Oslo brand was born. Ever since, Pedersen has continued evolving the factory's signature style, a blanket coats in pure wool, turning it into a brand iconic its own right. All about local production and long-lasting quality, ESP use Norwegian lambswool from crossbreed sheep that have been walking freely in the highlands around Gol in Norway and creates cuts meant to transcend trends.
For spring/summer 2023, the brand staples comes in a colourful array, ranging from Klein blue, to punchy greens and barbie pinks. Heavy off-kilter wrap coats in thick fuzzy wool was paired with matching rib-knit trousers. Knit scarves were slung over the shoulders of knit sweaters, worn with loose slacks while colourful rib knit sets (consisting of a long sleeved button-closure dress and trousers) added a healthy dose of playfulness.
