How has coronavirus impacted sales expectations in this segment?
Right now we are planning a decrease of 15% sales vs the previous SS20 season. On the other hand, since the end of the lockdown, we have great feedback from our partners. It is still hard to say where we will land but we keep our eyes open and exchange a lot with our retailers. Anyway, the crisis will have an impact, it just hard to precisely know for how much.

How has COVID effected your SS21 sell in plans in terms of delays/ range cancellations and carry over etc?
Regarding our range plan, COVID pushed us to make last-minute adjustments. To help our retailers we will work on a global carryover strategy between SS20 and SS21. We also decided to push forward some development to SS22 in order to launch a new style in better circumstances.

Our bags offer storage options and optimization that will fit all camping styles, air travel and rail journeys, ride & bike trips, and even urban escapes. All the good reasons to enjoy adventure and the unexpected!

What makes this product category important to your brand?
Every great adventure start with a backpack. It is your ticket to go explore and discover new places. For our community, it is an essential product and we are happy to propose functional & sustainable options without any compromise on the quality.

Which technical features are you proudest of?
Since the beginning, we have been working on eco-innovation and alternatives to polluting materials. Today, 100% of our range is sustainable. The light ripstop we use on our technical range, as well as our Soavy fabric, are 100% recycled. On the other hand, the cotton of our beach bag is 100% organic.

We also work on the versatility of our bag. Our Atlant 22L features an inside padded pocket that can welcome a hydration system up to 1.5 liters of a 13” laptop. On the front panel, you also have an elastic carry system where you can fit a towel, a jacket, or any clothes.

What are the silhouettes and materials for this season?
We can recognize the Picture style DNA with bold colors & original prints on each bag. Regarding the fabric, we use 2 different ripstop this season, a 210D very light and strong for our technical range, and a 450D for the lifestyle range. The designers worked all together to match the organic & expedition line as much as possible with accessories as bags, and propose several total looks, which is easier to merchandise.
