With love, from Lucy - June 2021
Following on from our With Love, in the Time of Corona updates, we hope you enjoy our monthly newsletter series; a must-read round-up of behind the scenes content, blogs we can't get enough of, our current obsessions, tips of the month and more!
June was a busy month here at Aspiga - the shops and online store saw a roaring trade and we so enjoyed hosting our London Pop-Up - if you haven't been in to see us yet, find the closest store near you and come say hello!
One of our biggest highlights was the amazing article in The Times, who had this to say about Aspiga and our Nancy Dress:
“The dress of spring/summer 2021 is Aspiga’s Nancy style. It’s pretty and feminine and flowy, but not too boho... Sustainability and the power of giving back is in the designer’s DNA”
Finally, we were very proud to be shortlisted in the Sustainable Initiative of the Year category in the Drapers Footwear Awards 2021 for our ongoing beach clean-up campaign in Kenya!
In this month's newsletter, we've got a guide to caring for your clothes, the best books to read on a plane or sofa, a behind-the-scenes glimpse into our London Pop-Up store, a few items the Aspiga team are currently loving and more...
