SXSW was a blast this year! Thank you to everyone who came out to see us last week. We met such interesting people throughout the week (bikers, fashion designers, bands, bloggers, principals, curators, and more), and we really enjoyed all the fascinating conversations.
Here’s a quick photo recap of all the fun we had throughout the week.
People love our totes. They’re stylish, practical, and perfect for carrying around all of our prized possessions. We take great pride in them, but we like to mix things up a little bit from time to time. With that said, ESPEROS will soon spring a new collection of totes featuring some slight changes, including exciting new color schemes and design implementations to provide a little facelift.
The big reveal will happen at the end of this month, so be sure to keep checking our website for their arrival! Don’t be afraid to use that refresh button. Or, you could follow us on Twitter and Instagram @esperosbags for up-to-the-minute details.
What do they look like, you ask? You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out. All we can say is that they look TERRA-ific.
SXSW is just around the corner and we could not be more excited! The infusion of arts, start up buzz, and, of course, incredible music (not to mention loads of free food!) breathes new life into the city of Austin and is one of our favorite events of the year.
Recently, the world of fashion and design has begun to play a larger role during SXSW and this year The Neighborhood will launch as a spin-off of the very successful StyleX. The Neighborhood, running March 11-14, will bring in design legends such as John Varvatos and Billy Reid, alongside executives from Refinery 29 and Cole Haan, as guest speakers to discuss what's new in the world of fashion. In addition to those amazing panels, The Neighborhood will host 14 up and coming retailers from around the country as part of its inaugural Pop Up Shop.
As you may have guessed by now, ESPEROS will be one of those lucky vendors! If you'll be in Austin, please come visit us in the Heart of Austin's 2nd Street District (the unofficial hub of SXSW) - we can't wait to meet you!
ESPEROS recently entered Scion's Motivate contest in hopes of receiving a new Scion, business mentorship, and the chance to win $10,000 to help grow our business.
As part of the application process, Scion asked us to create a new video. After a lot of brainstorming, this is what we came up with. We hope you enjoy!
