A last round of shopping at Esprit Delft.
Tourists manage to find the Bastiaansplein more often. And located in the most beautiful corner (because it’s the only shop with a view of the New Church!) on the square is Esprit Delft. We catch up with Judith Engelen, permanent employee at Esprit Delft.
“As a franchise we put together our own collection of clothes within the Esprit concept,” explains Judith. “We work with three fashion concepts: casual, edc (young Esprit) and Collection (business). The basics, such as jeans and t-shirts, obviously we have those throughout the year, but we vary our collection of clothes on a monthly basis.”
We keep it very peaceful and spacious for our customers
Esprit Delft, exists over ten years already and has a solid team of six shop employees. The collection is often a bit more stylish and less ‘chaotic’ in colour than most of Esprit’s own stores. “We keep it very peaceful and spacious for our customers,” says Judith. But it can certainly be busy sometimes. “We’re getting many more visitors; numerous Germans and also Asian tourists.”
Of course Delftians know to their way to Esprit Delft too. “We’re open daily until 18.00 also on Saturdays, and every Sunday from 12.00 to 17.00. With parking underneath Bastiaansplein we are in an ideal setting where many do their last round of shopping before ending the day.”
For those who want to keep up-to-date, visit the Esprit Delft Facebook page. Judith posts updates twice a week, for example on the new shop window, new pieces that just arrived or beautiful photos by Esprit.
Any seasonal tips? “Currently we have many red, green and organic clothing items. In addition, we can look forward to a lot of grey and cream colours. Obviously followed by party wear for the festive months!”
