How are you helping retailers to sell this category?
Did the restrictions at resorts last year impact the sell-through of the FW21/22 collection? If so, how have you addressed this issue?
The last 2 seasons have been tough for everyone, so like a lot of other brands we brought in some carry-over lines and reduced our assortment. This will help the stores to sell the product without having to discount it heavily
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?
We didn’t feel a huge impact on the factory side of things but rather in the logistics. We saw an increase in pricing and delays in delivery schedules. We tried not to let this effect the price of our end product and also put in our orders slightly earlier this year to have a buffer on any unexpected delivery delays
The Rosewood goggle comes with integrated speed connect magnet system to ensure you always have the right lens for a great day of shredding. The Rosewood 22/23 is now part of our eco conscious program, using BIO TPU frame injection, no painted, no varnish and water base glue.
