Retail Buyers Guide: Men‘s Outerwear 2023/24 Retail Buyer‘s Guide
Interviewee: MARION BERTRAND, PRODUCT MANAGER
What is the overall theme behind your 2023/24 outerwear range? From which big trends do you take your inspiration?
The new color stories are inspired by the palettes found in nature, sometimes with an aurora borealis theme, or the change of season from autumn to winter, or the cutting of trees and the colors obtained in the drying process, and then in our comfortable interiors decorated in wood.
What new fits / silhouettes are coming out in 2023/24? What pant and jacket styles are most important in your range?
We are introducing a new 3L freeride outfit, long cut and mix of materials, as well as a new “modern snow” silhouette with a relaxed cut
What new colours / prints are you introducing?
We introduce a print entitled Mood which represents a landscape in mountain, with forest, hut, in an effect of painting, in black and white.
Any *NEW* technical stories with regards to fabrics and materials?
We continue with The Circular_, our new sustainability technology, launched in SS23, by putting it on 70% of our outerwear collection.
For FW23, all Picture’s technical pieces will be part of The Circular_ program, made from fabrics using existing waste within our own industry (textile). “Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.”
From recycled outerwear, organic streetwear or biosourced shells, Picture is known to have a never-ending sustainable product innovation policy. But not only. Other processes such as upcycling, waste prevention campaigns, phasing out PFCs or renting service & lifetime repair warranty are amongst other initiatives that lead the brand’s way to circularity.
What are your top marketing stories for 2023/24? This will help us to put some focus in the right place.
