Oh how I am in love with this stuff! I have such clear memories of the graphic design of Esprit, even though I was too young to be terribly academic about it. A favorite pair of shoes came in a yellow corrugated plastic one-piece box with an elastic closure. I saved it and kept my markers in it.
Alisa Benfey of Irocoh was kind enough to put scans of Esprit's 1984-86 catalog on her Flickr page. I straightened some of them up and re-posted here.
At my last job, thisbook was in the library...I kind of wish that I accidentally borrowed it forever!
