With love, from Lucy - August 2021

Hi there,

August has flown by, and we're thrilled to share with you the latest installment of our monthly newsletter series - a must-read roundup of behind-the-scenes content, blogs we can't get enough of, books we love, sustainability tips of the month, and more!

August was a month of heady activity at Aspiga, as we saw the amazing Trinny and Chloe Friday twinning on her Instagram feed in our Maeve Tea Dress, which is still available to PRE-ORDER and is going to be in store and online soon!

As we look forward to the month of September, we're pleased to announce our new shop opening in Marlborough! Keep an eye out on our Store Locations page for updated details, and our Work With Us page for job opportunities!

In this month's newsletter, we've got a behind-the-scenes glimpse at our recent Autumn/ Winter shoot, an easy recipe from Nigella Lawson, our current obsessions of the month, and more...

With love,

Lucy and Team Aspiga x

UN Climate Panel’s Report in August 2021

In world news, we have all been shocked by the recent extreme weather events such as Hurricane Ida in the US Gulf Coast, and flooding in Turkey and Germany. Following the publication of the UN Climate Panel’s Report in August 2021 the main point made was that humans are to blame for the current climate crisis. The first line of the report’s summary reads "It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land."
