Created in 1985, at the pinnacle of Esprit's cultural sway, by the brand's PR director Helie Robinson, The Making of an Image celebrates the working relationship between Italian fashion photographer Olivier Toscani and the brand's founders, Doug and Susie Tompkins. Toscani's colorful and often hilarious depictions of Esprit's famous soft pastels, powerful primaries, and eye-catching patterns resulted in a timeless and vastly influential collection of print ads and catalog photos whose impact on contemporary fashion truly cannot be understated.
