Springing forward to next season, Canadian entrepreneur, owner, and designer of Espe, Elizabeth Hardy, is excited to unveil her Spring/Summer 2023 handbag and accessory collection. Espe has a reputation for affordable, timeless, premium vegan leather designs that are both functional and fashionable.
“My entire career working in fashion led me to Espe,” says Hardy after spending 25 years as a CEO of an international fashion brand. “Espe was born out of my lifelong love affair with fashion and my love of animals.” Espe is a cruelty-free company that uses premium Peta-approved vegan leather to create unique and timeless designs and Hardy takes pride in maintaining ethical and fair practices every step of the way.
The Spring/Summer 2023 collection draws inspiration from childhood summers through a range of warm hues including sunshine yellow, soft pink, and sage. Two-tone elements are a nod to the ‘70s – at once nostalgic and modern. There is also a playful energy that combines colour, whimsical florals and buckle details that give the collection an elevated vintage vibe.
Take a look at some of the fresh new picks for the season below… Available online as of January 14 at Espe.com and at select retailers across Canada and the U.S.
