Interviewee: Maarten van der Laan , Creator of APHEX

What are the major trends in the snow goggles market?
We are going Bio based for our frames and will use Rpet material for our printed straps next winter.

What do customers expect from their goggles?
Quality, originality and reasonable price. We are continuing to promote our spherical Styx and XPR goggle over the season, simply because the package is an all in one, 2 lenses provided, bio-based frame, recycled straps, a goggle sock and an extra lens pouch. The possibility to order only frame, lens or strap when one of these are damaged or needs a change helps the planet a little more.

What were your biggest sellers in FW21/22 and why?
It is a hard time, but our new Styx and XPR full magnetic goggles are our best sellers.

What are the most important technological features in your FW22/23 collection?

What is new in terms of construction and materials in your FW22/23 goggle collection?

Did the restrictions at resorts last year impact the sell-through of the FW21/22 collection? If so, how have you addressed this issue? We stay positive!!

Have you had problems with the supply of FW21/22 product? If so, how have you addressed this issue, and will this result in changes to your FW22/23 sell-in?
Due to increasing prices for transport and raw materials we have changed our margin a little bit, this will have no effects for the end customers though.
