Get Into The Free Esprit Of All Things

Esprit, the famous international brand of clothing and accessories, is now available online on Myntra, making it a convenient way to shop for the popular brand.

Esprit is a French word that means vitality and possessing the spirit of life. It was chosen as the name for a new brand of casual fashion when it debuted in San Francisco, USA in the year 1968. It wanted to become the clothing of choice for young people who were free spirited, unconventional, unique and daring. Therefore, the clothes were designed to be casual for maximum comfort yet as stylish as one could imagine – the best of both worlds, you could say.

esprit-2

Since then, the Esprit brand has become a reputed, desirable, quality fashion clothing line for men, women and children. It claims to be inspired by real people with real emotions, justifying its name, which means “spirited”.

The new Esprit collection on Myntra has arrived just in time for winter, with Christmas a few weeks away, followed by the New Year, so is a showcase of the winter festivities trends. It also happens to have retro inspiration, with a hint of the ’90s styles of fashion and sports luxury.

There are as many 405 different styles to be explored and worn. From baggy tops to trendy sweatshirts, from wide trousers to slim skirts, from jackets to Tees, besides shorts, coats, sweaters and blazers – one has plenty to choose from for lovers of casual chic.

It’s not surprising that Esprit has chosen Myntra as its launch platform. Myntra, after all, possesses an edge on the online fashion landscape in India. The partnership between the two players will undoubtedly help forge plans that will aid Esprit’s business strategy for the region. Esprit has in the past demonstrated its multi-channel approach to conducting its retail operations globally.

From Myntra’s point of view, the arrival of Esprit is an exciting addition to the online portal’s already large portfolio, comprising more than 30 leading international fashion brands of clothes and accessories.

The genesis of Esprit can be traced back to San Francisco, where Susie and Doug Tompkins founded the company, to reflect the sunny Californian attitude through its line of clothing.

The foremost three values behind the very first designs were effortless style, authenticity and easy-living. Esprit aspired to be the best casual fashion brand, offering outstanding value for money. Its colours were forever new, its fabrics always of top quality and most important, extremely easy to wear.

Each Esprit clothing spelt effortless, relaxed and comfortable style. The selection of the fabric, its fitting and quality are the foremost priorities at Esprit.

Esprit’s collection ranges from casual sportswear to business clothing for men and women, casual wear for young women, kids’ clothing, sports wear, ski wear, fitness clothing and street wear. Clothes never being complete without accessories, Esprit also has a huge range of accessories like bags, shoes and watches.

Esprit watches are extremely desirable, and range from the Esprit Black Metal Casual Analog Men’s Watch to the Esprit Rouge Black Women’s Watch. Then, there’s the Esprit Black Leather Casual Analog Men’s Watch and the Esprit Black Silicon Analog Men’s Watch. There’s also the Esprit Marin Halo Gold Men’s Watch.

Esprit Home sells products like furniture and carpets, home textiles and bathroom fabrics. Besides kidswear, Esprit also has stylish maternity wear, toys, and nursery furniture. The group also sells cosmetics under the Red Earth brand.

With a presence in more than 40 countries, around 900 retail stores and more than 7,800 wholesale stores, including franchise stores and spaces in department stores, it’s a force to reckon with.

When Myntra Gave A Makeover To Its Employees

Beauty is skin deep, goes the saying, but in reality, the more beautiful one looks, the more happy one feels – which makes beauty quite a deep idea, actually! The staff at Myntra’s warehouse would certainly agree to this philosophy as they all said they were really happy with the way the session made them look and feel.

The Myntra warehouse employees, who normally spend their day doing quality checks on goods to be delivered, then packing them, and finally getting them ready for delivery, were treated to a day that was quite different from their usual, routine day.

myntra-staff-makeover

The day had begun with anticipation, with a male employee wanting to look like a “hero’ after his makeover. A lady employee said she wanted to look “modern and fashionable”. Then, another guy said he wanted to be “fun and cool.” There was one who said she never woke make-up before stepping out of the house but here she was, ready to get a makeover. There was a guy who just wanted a change, a new look, and then there was a girl who said she was prepared not to recognise her familiar face in the mirror.

Well, they got haircuts and blow-drys, eye make-up and and lip make-up, among other things.

The day culminated in feelings of sheer amazement, with people unable to recognise themselves. Someone said she couldn’t believe that she could look like a model. “I feel proud to see how I’ve changed,” said one, while another said, “Seeing the audience expression was simply ‘wow’.”

Following individual attention being given to them by Myntra’s in-house stylists, all the warehouse employees were in agreement that it was one of the best things to happen to them.

Then, it was time to walk the ramp, cheered on by colleagues who couldn’t believe their eyes that the stylish catwalk was by their well-known colleagues.

After a long and hard day’s work, stylist Pious John said he really enjoyed the makeover session with the employees, and it was “worth the wait” to see how fabulous each of the employees looked after it was over.

Rida, another stylist who was accompanying him, said it was a priceless feeling to see the expressions of the Myntra employees on the conclusion of the makeover experiment.

After a hard day’s work, stylist Pious John said the makeover session was “worth the wait”, while stylist Rida said, “Seeing their expressions was priceless.”

Last year, Myntra had offered makeover sessions to its customers with a tie-up with Ola App. The Ola App is of course a mobile app for personal transportation.

Their joint effort offered a free makeover session, curated by personal style advisors, to users of the Ola app. Ola and Myntra flagged off the ‘LookGood Express’ – which were actually dedicated cabs from Ola – filled with goodies, to offer a complete makeover to customers across Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata on August 2nd. Users enjoyed a free makeover at their doorstep on requesting a cab.

The ‘LookGood Express’ had a personal style advisor from Myntra, who called up customers to gather relevant styling details required to design a cool new look for them, on receiving a request through the Ola app. On reaching the customer’s destination, the style advisor handed over a personalised goodie bag with trendy apparels and accessories from Myntra, besides sharing personalised fashion tips to enhance the customer’s new look.

It goes without saying that this first-of-its-kind activity simply delighted fashion lovers across the cities.

At the time, Srikanth Pinninti, Vice-President-Marketing, at Myntra, said, “We have always believed in creating exciting experiences for customers, helping them look good anywhere and everywhere. Our teams of stylists are eager to personally meet and offer individualised style makeovers at their door step.”

Myntra Wins ET Panache Award For Trend-Setting Workplace

At a grand evening in Mumbai last Friday, Myntra was awarded the ET Panache Trendsetting Workplace Award. Myntra’s trendsetting workplace is as much about its physical interiors as it’s about the culture of mixing work and play.

The moment you step inside, you might take a step backwards, thinking you have wrongly come to a modern mall! It starts at the reception itself, which resembles a high-end shop. There’s a Look Good Café as well as a live video-shoot ramp. The names of famous fashion models are scrawled on the walls, while portraits of sports and fashion icons brighten up the office space.

Comics and graffiti decorate the walls, while lounges welcome you to take a break. The mannequins and racks of clothes, not to mention camera on a tripod, are typical signs of a fashion photoshoot.

office_myntra

The brand Myntra is representative of fashion to its numerous fans. Similarly, its office recreates the world of fashion across its four floors, with each floor showcasing different aspects of the fashion business – such as fashion brands, fashion sports, fashion editors and fashion stylists.

Myntra’s office in Bangalore also has one of the largest spaces dedicated to indoor games like badminton, snooker, foosball and gym. There’s indoor space to practice cricket, running, bicycling. Myntra even has its own cricket league – the Myntra Premier League – in which high employee participation is seen.

Asked to explain the reason behind Myntra bagging the ‘Trendsetting Workplace’ Award, during an interview, Myntra CEO Ananth Narayanan said, “For me, a trend is an idea, invention, or differentiated approach, that fundamentally changes how people, organisations and society conduct themselves.”

“Trends tend to shape and change the ecosystem permanently. When it comes to Myntra, Ananth elaborates, belonging as it does to “an industry like fashion, it is important to have a vibrant and open culture that spawns creativity and nurtures talent. Our culture and office are intertwined. Our vibrant and colourful office space underscores our commitment to create a vibrant and fun culture at work.”

“Since Myntra employees spend a considerable part of their day within the office, it is important that the workspace reflect the culture that one wants to build. People mix work and play without compromising on results,” he adds.

What’s even better is that the trendsetting culture at Myntra is not just about office design, but that it extends to some pretty cool policies and perks also. Women employees, for example, have the option of taking a six-month maternity leave, followed by flexible working models on their return to office.

Since the beginning, Myntra has succeeded in building a really different culture that aids innovation, encourages risk-taking, values ownership and appreciates collaboration. The main differentiators that help to promote such are a culture are Myntra’s value system, which comprises, “Myntra First, Aim High, Make it Happen, Make Work Fun, Look Good & Relentless Focus on the Consumer.”

Each of these values is deeply embedded into Myntra’s Systems And People Practices.  Some key examples of implementing these values can be seen in the “Myntra Performance Management System”, which is aimed at recognising team performance through establishing team goals over individual goals. The Myntra Customer Immersion Programme ensures each employee understands the consumer by actually delivering products door to door, before officially onboarding.

Ananth Narayanan says, “I see two big shifts in the workplace. First, the approach to doing business has changed from linear to non-linear. Secondly, organisations no longer view employees as resources, but as partners in their success. The emergence of technology giants and new age start-ups has played a big role in this.”

Women Can’t Be Contained in Stereotypes

Women are oppressed in India, and have been for as long as recorded history serves us. With the advent of Islam in India in the Mughal period, several notions of ‘purda’ and ‘hijab’ made its way to the local Indian women. It happened in the form of clothes such as salwar-kurta and dupatta. It became the most preferred attire for women. Earlier, hindu women were known to let their bosoms remain uncovered as they often wore sarees which were mostly wrapped around their waists with one end going over the shoulder. As the time progressed, so did the fashion and rights of women. For a long time, in the patriarchal order under the Islamic rulers, women were given little freedom to do as appeased them, but now in the year 2016, times have changed remarkably, however, a ghost of the previous restrictions still exist for the women in our country.

anouk-myntra-1-480x280

‘Don’t go out after sunset’, ‘Don’t talk to boys’, ‘Don’t wear short clothes’, ‘Get married quickly or what will the society think?’…these kind of oppressive words are still being spoken every day to women along with countless other small tidbits which put a question of the extent of freedom granted to women. To break such stereotypes which shackle the modern Indian women, several media platforms are being used to promote education for girls, equality in the work space, and women empowerment.

Anouk by Myntra is one such venture which utilizes digital media to shed light on such issues while promoting their apparel which are created for the modern Indian women. ‘Bold is Beautiful’ is one such campaign which focuses solely on issues relating to inequality between men and women, showcasing how a powerful message can be communicated by a woman who is confident in her demeanor and unstoppable in her pursuits.  Anouk offers a variety of bold, ethnic wear for women who do not give into external pressures and stand up for themselves in a world that is frequently learning to respect people who do.

Ethnic side of ‘All about you’

Ethnicity –how does one describe it? Is it the summation of everything that is found, invented, evolved or existing in our motherland? Or is it simply what has captured our hearts for so long (for centuries) that it has become a part of us? Ethnicity is what remains when the rest has moved on through the sands of time. So what is our inheritance as Indian of modern age? One thing comes to mind before anything else: Our clothes.

myntra-all-about-you-2

Ethnic fashion is big in India, even today when there are no limits of trading (because of globalization) and western clothing is just as readily available. Much of the textile market in India deals with the manufacturing of Indian clothes or ethnic wear such as Kurta-Pajama, Salwar-Kameez, Sarees etc. and it is because of the popularity of such items all over the world that Indians are reputed to be brightly-dressed in beautifully embroidered clothes. However that international image is not exactly on the mark as even the ethnic fashion has been going through a continuous evolution. With Bollywood helping greatly in the propagation of trends since its inception, ethnic fashion clearly outshines western fashion in the films.

Deepika Padukone –the young, vibrant superstar, has similar thoughts on ethnic wear, as she has ventured into fashion with her brand ‘All About You’ with Myntra. Offering a vibrant collection of ethnic wear, she is set to take the trend-setting crowd by their brightly-colored dupattas and introduce her own natural style into the mix. Offering a variety of sober, subtle and breezy-cutted attires, ‘All About You’ offers you grandeur in minimalism.
